You try searching and downloading MIcrosoft Media creation tool for Win 8.1. Using it you download a copy of Win 8.1 64 bit (not the PRO version) and burn to usb or dvd. Boot through the usb or dvd to install Win 8.1. The product key is in the bios and should be detected automatically during installation.

LenBlazer thx for your reply.
i installed it, but now the probem is that my sound card (conexant smart audio HD) doesnt play the bass frequencys when i plug my boxes in. I had the same problem when i tried a clean install of windows 10.
Yet all drivers are up to date

Since it is a clean install you need to install the drivers specific to your unit. Start with the chipset driver then IMEI if there is one, etc. Usually, you can download these drivers from Lenovo's site or if the old hdd is still accessible, you can find them in the driver folder.
