Newer systems with OEM Windows 8 preinstalled use a key embedded in the BIOS and do not have a COA sticker with the key on it as in the past.

First thing you should be doing after taking the PC out of the box is run the manufacturer's utility to create a factory restore set of discs (or USB stick) as a guard against just such an eventuality.

You cannot use the disc images from Microsoft as you do not have the key. The restore set you create using the manufacturer's utility does not ask for a key, it uses the key embedded on the motherboard.

Don't know on Asus, but on HP's it's called "Recovery Media Creation".
