I've installed Win7x64 on my R500 (27325XG s/n R8xxxxx) instead of Vista Business recently and, surprisingly, the installer asked me for a product key (which I thought should have been integrated for OEM installation). Where can I obtain the key for the Win 7 Upgrade kit ordered early in December and delivered in January? I only have the Vista Business key on my laptop's bottom.

Assuming your R500 came with a Vista pre-install; if you were using the Lenovo W7 upgrade discs to install you would have received a product key with the discs. If you have used the recovery discs from another system which came with a W7 pre-install you will need to purchase an W7 license, preferably oem, and use the key from that.
