Hi

I guess if you do not have a Windows 8 DVD you have a Manufacturers OEM installation of Windows 8

If you have a Windows 8 DVD (64 bit) you have a System Builders OEM DVD

while the retail Windows 8 pack will have a 32bit & 64bit DVD in box (usually in tiny print upgrade version)

No DVD or any installation media with me.
