perhaps i glossed over this, but isnt your windows 8 product key on the MS sticker on the bottom of the laptop? sometimes the the sticker is hidden under the battery.

I'll have to take a look later tonight when I get home. But I had the understanding that MS got rid of the sticker and the product key is now embedded somewhere in the laptop's BIOS. Thanks for the heads up... I'll check it out.

Update - I was successfully able to install my new SSD and reinstall Windows 8 with a Windows 8 iso. I never had to input a product key and I am good to go! It was actually quite easy. Windows 8 takes care of most, if not all of the setup.
