I`m pretty sure if your pc came with windows 8, the product key is embedded into the computer hardware. so when you attempt to re-install windows 8 the key will automatically be detected.

so you should be fine

As long as you have the code and the disc to install you are fine, you can download the disc files if you google them just make sure you get the same version you currently have.

Sounds a bit drastic.

Why not just install a free app Classic Shell which makes Windows 8 look like Windows 7
