I had to reinstall windows from recovery partiton on my laptop. After that windows activation fails with the code Error: 0x8007232b
Key management services (KMS) host could not be located in domain name system (DNS), please have your system administrator verify that a KMS is published correctly in DNS.
DNS name does not exist.
Laptop was purchased from best buy and is not connected to domian. I have also tried to register windows with the key i got from Powershell and read and write uility "(Get-WmiObject -query 'select * from SoftwareLicensingService').OA3xOriginalProductKey"
However it tells me that this is invalid product key.
What are my options? Is there a number i can call to get the proper windows key? email technical support?

Anyone? Is there a way to open a support ticket with Lenovo? I have tried calling them and they referred me to call Microsoft. Well, Microsoft referred me to call Lenovo.
Since the key is invalid and is hardcoded in the BIOS, what are my opinions?
