Activate RTM windows 7 pro on my T410?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

My T410 has a valid product key for Windows 7 professional (I believe it is Lenovo OEM version) and I believe it has Win 7 pre-loaded.  Unfortunately, a IT staff in my company re-write all my disk with a XP image.  He also destroyed the reseration (OS recovery) partition of my disk.

 

I have no choice but to install a RTM image of Windows 7 professional, but I find my product key is invalid for this image.  Can anybody help me out?  TIA!

I'd suggest you order the "restore to factory" disks from Lenovo. They contain much more than Windows. Have the IT guy pay for them.

the win 7 key on your laptop should be valid for both retail and OEM version of the win 7. You should call Microsoft up and ask them about it.

@lead_org

 

I've tried again...it is invalid.  But thanks for the response!

 

It was heard from my friend -- if I installed some 'oem license' file, the activation would success.

 

BTW, the type is 2357-GK4.

 

It is 4 am in Aus...have a good sleep!

There is a chance that your key is been activated by someone else.
