Hello
What's wrong with the download?
You can download windows 8 directly from microsoft to reinstall windows ..

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8ISO
We have given this solution many times on the French forum, and there was no problem in general
your DVD must be only for this model and not another, for this it must not work
That said: "but it not accept my registration key."
The key being entered, in the system, normally we do not need to give it, unless this step can not be skipped?

Hi.. Thx for reply.

I did downloading from the same source.. But always failed. I don't know why. Internet, electricity, SSD space are good, stable. But always failed.

 

Do you have another source I can download?

 

 And yes, with another DVD, I cannot skip that registration number.

this is the official site, if you try other sites you may have problems
Although some are probably correct, I can not give you other links.
If I understand correctly, you can not download the file?
I will test if I can ..
Can you use another computer?
what exactly happens when you download?

[edit]

I downloaded the Windows 8 French 64 bits version and no problem

Yes, that's exactly what happened, download fail... I don't know why. I assume the link or files provider is broken. We'll, now I try to upgrade it to win10.. It's still downloading now.

 

But btw, I'm in Indonesia, but I can't find region Indonesia when I download win8.1... so I choose English, and English International on. Y second attemp... still failed. 

 

The reason I want to reset my WIN8. 1 is bcoz upon cloning, it took 70GB of my 128GB SSD only for Windows system.. Other personal files are in my HDD. So I want to get all windows reset factory setting, hoping that it will reduce the SSD usage (for system)

I will try with another laptop. The internet is fine I believe. But, if I failed in another computer, can you download and Google-share it? That's some option...

Sorry, that doesn't seem like a good idea to me
I don't use this system, and my internet speed seems a bit limited for large files
I can download, more or less quickly, but to upload a file it can take me at least two hours.
try to find someone near you to download the iso
If no way I'll see if I can find a solution
