Hi vakusus,

Thanks for posting.

Apologies you are having difficulties with your system.

If you purchased a new Windows 8 disk from a reputable dealer, then the windows key should have been provided with the media.  If you need further assistance with installation, one of the Rockstars has a website here that may be helpful.  http://del.ly/6593D8C5l

Windows 8 has reached end of life. You should use Windows 10 Version 1709 installation media instead which will automatically input and accept all Windows 8.0/8.1 and 10 OEM keys:
