Why is Windows 7 Professional installed on the M92p Desktop (ThinkCentre) - Type 3227?

2020-02-11, 10:39 AM

Why is Windows 7 Professional installed on the M92p Desktop (ThinkCentre) - Type 3227? And when you go into the BIOS, then there is a note that the license is Windows 8. How do I get the key to the system? I give out a key that was on the Internet (I used script from site on microsoft https://answers.microsoft.com/ru-ru/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_install/узнать/e03d2b09-070c-4d29-ac8b-72a13230511c) 237xb-gdj7b-mv8mh-98qjm-24367 lenovo. Do I have an original system? How do I determine this? I have utilities from lenovo, but I'm afraid that some kind of pirated version is installed since windows 8 in bios bothers me.

Solved! See the solution

The Lenovo specs show that some M92p 3227 models came with Win 8, and were either factory downgraded to 7 or the owner downgraded to 7 (since people hated the user interface of Windows 8), see the "Preloaded operationg system" section below.  The Windows 8 (and 10) key is stored in the BIOS, the Win 7 key is not, it is given on a sticker on the case, or on the disk case if bought seperately from the system.  This is not abnormal.

Thanks. Very useful information

 

Lol, I don’t have a license disc and there is no sticker on the case. Will I have problems if there is a check for compliance with the license agreement?

 

And if I reinstall the system to 7 and enter the license key? In this case there will be problems?

I imagine that the existing Win 7 is authenticated, otherwise it would have ceased to run by now. 

 

And since Win 7 reached End-of-Life last month, you are licensed to run Win 8, and you can upgrade to and run Win 10 for free, I see no good reason to re-install Win 7.
