My laptop is having issues and might have to reinstall. It has an Windows 8 sticker on the bottom (so I assume the licence key is saved in the BIOS & I can only reinstall Windows8, not 8.1 ) - my Windows 8 disc has too many scratches and doesn't read properly.
Does anyone know where I could get a factory Windows 8 64bit image - so I can put it onto USB & get back to running Windows? (not 8.1) Can't seem to get it from Microsoft as I don't have an MSDN account.
I'm slightly lost as for what people do, if they do have Windows 8 licence - they just don't have the disc media? Would be grateful if someone could help.
