Z580 Windows 8

2013-05-13, 20:47 PM

Good Day,


I see this topic has been discussed to death. But would appreciate fresh input on the topic.

I made a big mistake buying my lenovo z580 with windows 8. Thinking I can load it with windos 7 and later restore windows 8 i found out to late that the partions should NOT be formated and there is no recovery disks given (i formated it in the first 2 min after i bought it). I have hower backed up all the files and software on the partions.







is there a way to rebuild the windows okr images into a iso DVD for reload?

I also tried to take a normal ISO DVD of windows 8 and reload it, but it seems the embeded key will not work with any version of windows 8 64x other then the embbed version which has no ISO.


please help / advice. really want to get win8 back on
