    I would suggest you to download the legal copy or torrent it and use the key that came with your laptop.

    Of course ...the seller saw no reason ... they want your money!!

    Or does it require a recovery partion which i don’t have =/.
    This version, most likely a cracked version that will eventually crash on you, does NOT require a recovery partition.

    You keep looking for shortcuts to avoid the obvious solution -- contact Lenovo and get installation media from them!

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    This. There is little reason to go downloading potentially cracked/hacked ISOs while trying to get Win8 back on your machine when you can just talk to the manufacturer.

    Re: Reinstall windows 8

    Stupidity costs too much. $89 dollars to be exact, oh well. I just decided to call, i figured i'd try to get it a little cheaper. I guess it'll be safer and less of a headache to just buy it. I mean they should provide(and i should back up windows first thing) the disc for free. Thanks again for the help, i can always rely on Ubuntu forums
