i was unaware that by making partitions in my ideapad z500 it will destroy the one key recovery. i made partitions in my hdd and my OKR was gone. After a while my windows start chrashing i guess it was some problem in registry. i formatted my system and with the help of rufus(which made my usb UFEI) i was able to install windows 8 from a pirated iso i got from my friend, but in the process i had to format OEM AND MSR partitions which were factory made. know when i try activating it, it wont ask me about the key(i had noted down the key of my windows before formatting it thanks to bellarch) and also the product id mentioned is not the same as it was earlier. i tried downloading windows 8 from microsoft website but when i provide the product key again it wont download. please seek help i can make my windows genuine.
