M90p Windows 10 License

I've updated my M90p to Windows 10 (free upgrade via MS)

 

It's asking me to activate the system

 

I thought the Windows 10 license was buried in the UEFI of these systems ?

 

Can someone clarify the license status of an M90p for me

 

Thanks,

Re: M90p Windows 10 License

Hi Steve,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you are facing issue related to Windows Activation in ThinkCentre M93p after free upgrade to Windows 10

Just to confirm few things whether system was preloaded with Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 8 Pro 64-bit /Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit or only with Windows 7 Professional 64/32 bit.

And also in the back of system you can check for the Windows 8 logo. If it has Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 8 Pro 64-bit/Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit then license will be stored in BIOS which can easily be fetched through various softwares like PkeyUI etc. 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Thanks for you reply ...

 

 

The system came with Windows 7 x64 Pro

 

Not sure if it was installed via a Windows 8 /8.1 downgrade

 

I'll check out PKeyUI and see what it thinks

How about checking the Windows sticker or you can also message me your system's Serial Number privately to confirm.
