A program called RWEverything ... under ACPI, MSDM.
If you are trying to add media centre you need the pro version of Windows 8 first so your Windows 8 Core product key won't do.
For more details on RW-Everything see here:
Windows Reinstallation Guide and Related Wikies See here for other wikies such as Customising and Using Windows 8.1, Dell Wireless Cards and Unofficial Drivers.
The Windows 8 product key will be mentioned at the bottom of the computer or inside the battery compartment. Also let me the reason why you are looking for a product key as Dell laptops come with pre-installed OEM version of Windows 8.
All the keys on the keyboard light up as there are wordings on it but on a spacebar key there is no letters so it doesn’t glow. It is normal on all systems with backlight.

Hello, I have the same problem. I have deleted the boot partition of windows 8 and cannot find the
serial number to download and install the windows again. Inside the battery section I couldn't find
a microsoft label with product key. There is a number written there, but I'm not sure that this is the
The product key for Windows 8 operating system is pre-installed in the motherboard for Dell computers. If you have made a copy of Recovery DVD of the Windows 8 from this computer you can use that or you may want to contact Local Dell technical support and request for an OEM DVD or USB drive. You can use the OEM Operating system and the product key will be automatically recognized by the Windows.

I've got a similar problem. I've ust bought my Dell 17RSE-3589BK couple of weeks ago. Windows 8 crashed during partitioning. I keep getting error code "0xc0000225 (File:\Windows\system32\windows.efi)" and can't access to Windows. Even running Windows in safe mode doesn't work. I don't have recovery drivers and also product key for win8. I don't know how to proceed; can you help me?
I will be glad to help you, request you to answer the below questions:
(1) Are u able to go to login screen?
(2) How are you trying to access safe mode?
(1) No. After Dell logo disappears during opening; I got a recovery page with previously mentioned error code.
(2) From advance startup menu (F8). When I choose safe mode, it starts Windows and I see blue background of desktop for 2 seconds. Then, it shuts itself down.
I'm guessing Windows 8 setup files are kept in preinstalled partition. Can't I access them and format preinstalled Windows and then start a clean one? I might be wrong but that would be the first thing I do if I had Win8 DVD and product key.
I request you go to Advance startup menu option by pressing F8 key, click on repair your computer option and then select Dell backup and recovery.
If this option is not available then you will have to get recovery discs.
There's no Dell backup and recovery option. I'm accesing to advance boot menu through a Windows 8 recovery disc I downloaded, that could be the reason. F8 was not functioning without it.
How can I get my original recovery discs? I downloaded Windows 8 trial version. "Refresh your PC" and "Reser your PC" options do not work. When I follow the installation instructions of Windows 8, it asks for the product key which I do not have. It doesn't recognize the product key that is pre-installed in the motherboard.
