New notebook with Windows 8 - how to re install Windows?
+1 received by user: 3
My wife just purchased a new HP notebook with Windows 8 from Harvey Norman.
It doesn't have a CD drive which is cool because we never use.
My question is, is it possible to format this PC in future and reinstall Windows? If so, how would this be done? There is no windows licence key that i can find on the notebook either.

Microsoft Windows 8 repair and recovery
particularly the first options 'How to refresh, reset, or restore your PC'.
I should have added that these are generic options and exactly what you do can depend on the options provided by the vendor. There's usually documentation with the PC or they point you to their website.

I believe all Windows 8 computers should have their product keys installed in their BIOS and hence no key is required during installation as it's obtained from there.
