I got original windows 8 with my Sony laptop.
But I felt it a bit uncomfortable, and I just deleted every windows 8 portions (including the recovery partition), and installed win 7 in it.
Just to test I tried to install my original win 8 again using my recovery discs (I have four of them) but failed , it says I can't install this backup again in my lap !
Why ? What to do if I want my original win 8 back?

Now my win 7 also has a problem , after the Sony VAIO logo, it shows a black screen and restarts.

What to do?

check if you have the windows key (dont post it here) and use any Windows 8 DVD to install it , and use your key . it will work .

look for the key behind the notebook , or behind the battery , or behind the memory or HD covers ..

plus send an email to Sony and ask them if this does not work.

hmmm

maybe it is one of the new "key in bios" notebook.

you need to contact Sony about it , send them Email. lol and next time dont wipe out your recovery partition b4 makeing a disk image of your harddisk.

learn in the future , b4 doing Anything , make a clone of your harddisk using disk clone programs.

Pre-loaded licenses for Windows 8 use the new OA3.0, so there is no COA stickers on the laptops.
