I am an user of Lenovo IdeaPad S510P with windows 8 preinstalled. I have upgraded to windows 10 when it was released.
2 weeks back, I had to do clean install. I used media creation tool to create installation file in a USB through which i done the install. In the process, I formated three drives which has my previous windows(c drive) and other two drives which have my files. since then I am unable to activate my windows. as it saying digital entitlement is not found.
I havent taken any backup of previous versions. Failed to retrieve the product key. Please help me.
Below are the drives in my laptop:
total size free size type
Drive 0 partition 1: WINRE_DRV 1000MB 647 MB Recovery
Drive 0 unallocated space 260MB 260 MB
Drive 0 partition 2: LRS_ESP 1000MB 498 MB OEM(Reserved)
Drive 0 partition 3: 120MB 120 MB MSR (Reserved)
Drive 0 partition 4: Recovery 450MB 147 MB Recovery
Drive 0 partition 5: 100MB 76 MB System
Drive 0 partition 6: Windows 153.3GB 105GB Primary
Drive 0 partition 7: Drive D 136.7GB 131GB Primary
Drive 0 partition 8: Drive E 136.7GB 136.4 GB Primary
Drive 0 partition 9: Lenovo 25 GB 22.6GB Primary
Drive 0 partition 10: PBR_DRV 11.2 2.1GB Recovery
Out of the above drives, i only formated and changed partitions 6,7 and 8.
Now I am left with these drives and a USB which has installation file. Is there any possiblity of recovering my windows serial key??
Please help me out.
Thank you for your time.

I have this same error message. I don't have this issue with Windows 10 on Dell systems. What is going on here? Does Lenovo not have a key in the BIOS that works with Windows 10?
