This will not work if you use an OEM or system builders product key.
Have you tried this? -> Refresh or Reset your PC from the manufacturer recovery partition. You don't need Windows 8/8.1 DVD/USB/ISO.

System Manufacturer/Model Number Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G6 2321ee
OS Windows 8 Single Language
If you have Windows 8 Single Language version (see screenshot below), then you must download Windows 8/8.1 Single Language version (see this link for help).

Take a look at your MS store email, you find a link to download or buy a DVD.
