    So I got a lenovo laptop with win 8 on it. In my foolishness I put 7 on it and wiped the partitons. Now I want to go back to 8.

    I am under the impression that if I get a copy of win 8 pro x 64 it will install and the key will automatically be detected. Lenovo wants $89 bucks for a new image disk...WTF?

    Do I have it right? A clean MICROSOFT Windows 8 RTM Final PROFESSIONAL x64 English DVD ISO should do the trick and if so anyone know where i can get one all the links here seem to be dead.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Never mind I got my hands on one.

    You want to preserve your activation and your laptop was delivered with windows 8 then have a look here . Dont forget to download drivers from lenovo web site.

    Wow.. way to ignore the OPs post.. like he can preserve anything when it's already wiped clean, are you one of these guys @ Helpdesk? generic anwser that won't solve sh*t..

    Eitherway it looks like the OP already solved hes issue.

    Of course this is not the complete solution, but as the key is fixed in bios, I believed there was a way to create an iso for a complete reinstall.

    But my bad if I pointed to the wrong way :(
