T420s - no Windows 7 product code sticker found on laptop bottom plate

2012-09-21, 6:49 AM

Just bought t420s and on switching it on it automatically installed windows 7 for me. Everything went fine.

 

Then I though what if I want to reinstall Windows myself from scratch? I looked for Windows product code on th ebottom of the laptop and could not find it. Any ideas why is it so? I got used to those Windows product code stickers on the bottom of the laptop. But t420s doesn't have it.

 

How can I identify product code of my copy of windows then? Any ideas?
