    You may could clone the original HDD as 1 to 1 copy using Apps like HDClone or others.

    I do believe that the original HDD contains a Recovery Partition which will be activated with Hot-Key while booting.

    And Windows 8 Pro Image you could get from here:

    If you apply for an Free WMC Key from MS, you could also use the Delta-Patch ( for to change the downloaded ISO to one with WMC and get automatic fully activated while using that Free WMC Key.
