Windows 8 factory reset without CD

I want to fully reset a PC I got because I don't know the pw and the files on there I don't care about. When I click the factory reset after holding shift and restart at the login screen, it tells me I need to insert the windows installment. I haven't got this lying around anywhere. Is there another way to factory reset your PC without the windows installment?

Thanks :)
