How to reinstall windows 8 without recovery disk or recovery partition and product key embedded in bios?

I've a windows 8 laptop that I installed windows 7 on, thus wiping the windows 8 recovery partition.

Now that I want to reinstall windows 8 I can't because there's no product key sticker on the back of the laptop, it's embedded in the bios. I have no recovery disk or recovery partition to reinstall with.

I contacted microsoft and they told me to contact the manufacturer but the manufacturer will only sell me a recovery media disk.

Anyone know how to solve this without paying again to use my already purchased windows 8?
