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

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.

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.
