Hi Maluslupus,

New system are not shipped with recovery discs. If the system is able to boot into Windows, You can restore your computer using Alien Respawn application.

Note: This step leads to complete data loss including pictures, music files, videos, documents and applications. Please disconnect any external peripherals as well

On the Windows 8 start screen -> type Alien Respawn -> click Restore -> Restore my Computer -> Click Yes, Next -> Select the Factory Image -> The system would prompt the user to ensure that they are selecting the correct backup point. Click Yes once verified -> The system restarts and goes ahead with restoring the factory image as per the recovery point selected. Follow the on-screen instructions to setup the Operating System. (options may vary).

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Regards,
Appu S
