Re:[X270] Windows product key has disappeared from BIOS

Yes, it should be there. But my firmware does no longer contain this entry (and it was the case before, I've never had to enter any key, the laptop came with Windows Pro).

So, are there any Lenovo people who are on this forum and who could have a look to this?

Hello,

Can you tell us the Machine Type Model of the ThinkPad X270?  It should be printed on the bottom of the unit and begin with 20K5 or 20K6.

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

II can't find any with one of those prefix. But I have this:

 

Product Name: 20HMS18P00

SKU Number: LENOVO_MT_20HM_BU_Think_FM_ThinkPad X270

 

Is it relevant information?

That's a model without operating system, consistent with what you are seeing.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

OK, sorry for the confusion and the noise then. I previously re-installed Windows on top of Windows and then did not have to give the product key. This time it was on a blank drive...

 

Thanks
