X120e Win 7 activation

Got my brand new X120e yesterday. A really nice laptop with one problem. I've ordered it with Win 7 64 Professional. And the first thing I've noticed on the system is that it is not activated. When I tried to activate it... surprise... got an "invalid key" message.


Now, the problem is: there is no MS key sticker on the bottom of the system (only some lenovo numbers), so even if I call MSoft I don't know what to tell them...


Any suggestions?

Hello mate,


Remove the battery, the sticker is inside the battery slot.
