I would try to get a disk from somewhere. Its better to get a guy at a computer store to burn you a disk for 10 bucks or whatever then go out and hand M$ another 80 bucks for their lame OS. That's just my $0.02. Then you can be sure that your new build will be in top shape.
Alright, well I don't kid you when I say, there isn't a single computer store around. So my best bet is to buy Windows 8 and clean that whole drive with a new install of windows8?
