That is definitely one of the oddest things I've seen. The license terms at Microsoft.com still make reference to OEM's needing to attach a CoA in order to be in compliance with the OEM rules.
I wonder if this has changed due to the way they can store the key on the system...but until that's confirmed it's still a bit odd to me.

What i might do is install another hard drive in the laptop, do a fresh install of win 8 and see what happens with activation

Doesn't the key appear on your COA sticker? If not, I would defintiely get in touch with your manufacturer.

How do you activate a reinstall on OEM machine? Wasting a personal key is not an option.
