Windows 10 Home for reinstall

2020-05-29, 3:13 AM

I have had this Y710 cube for a little less 3 years.  Just got the "SSD at risk" message.  I understand it's out of warranty, so I don't have problems buying a new SSD and putting it in by myself.  But is there any way to get the OEM Windows 10 or at least the license code that came with this computer, so I don't have to pay for it again?

Solved! See the solution

Windows 10 Home for reinstall

For modern Lenovo products, the Windows license is stored in the BIOS. I would advise you to contact the support to verify it. On the other hand, major SSD manufacturers usually provide data migration software which allows you to clone the entire OS to a new SSD

Hi there Defective_ssd.

 


Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

You should be able to fetch the license key by running this command through Command Prompt/Powershell : 

 

In PowerShell/CMD(admin) type the following :

 

"wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey"

 

Without the quotation marks.

 

There is also a Windows Registry Method on how to do it, but for simplicity I will provide the link for it here

Good luck!

Thanks for the quick responses. I was able to retrieve the key. I'll try the clone utility first and fall back to reinstall if that doesn't work out.
