Reinstall windows8 from recovey discs after full format

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.
  2. No , the lap came with no keys.

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