You will need to use a Dell Windows 8 installation DVD.  Dell (and ALL OEM's) no longer include media with their systems, and it is NOT available for download, so you will need to call Support to order it (or see if you can borrow one or find one on eBay).

I can't order this disk because i live outside of the U.S they not have any download link for it?

No, there is NO download link for the media you need.  Only Dell media can pick up the Product Key in the BIOS and automatically activate Windows.

Call Dell Support in your region:
