Where could I download Windows 8 64-bit iso?

Hello,
I purchased Lenovo U410 with pre-installed Windows 8 64-bit. After some partition resizing, the system collapsed (gave me this error: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-system/i-get-your-pc-needs-to-be-repaired-and-error-code/e17ece75-0c69-4551-a3a1-a4e2ae2e8234).. I was unable to do anything but boot Windows 8 Eval version from USB. When I was able to look at the disk I could see that the partition where the original preinstalled system was is now empty.

Is there any way I could get the original Windows 8 64-bit iso? I have no serial number since there is only a "Windows 8" sticker on the bottom of my laptop. I read somewhere that there is "unique Windows product key in the BIOS of each new PC".. So when I reinstall windows, it should get activated that way?

Thanks for help!

Lenovo notebooks include a feature called the Lenovo OneKey Recovery button, which is used to boot into the Recovery Environment and reinstall Windows.

If that does not work, contact technical support
