Windows Install Key for Y500

2013-06-10, 0:28 AM

Hi, 

I need the Windows Install Key, and can't obtain it anywhere since it's embedded into the BIOS. This is in order to do a fresh install without Lenovos Bloatware on my mSata SSD. 

If anyone know where this key can be found, please let me know. 

Thanks for your help.

There are tools out there ( I like ProduKey) you can use to retrieve it from the Windows 8 install, but I found that when installing Windows 8 it automatically took the key from the bios and installed without asking for it. Installed perfect. I was even using a Windows 8 Upgrade DVD.

Hope this helps.
