Download RW-EVERYTHING. Run it. Click on the ACPI Table button at the top. After that click on the MSDM tab. Your BIOS's product key is at the bottom. You're Welcome!


Awesome! Thanks, it worked! I can't take windows 8 anymore. I'm downgrading and i hope i can reinstall and check out this windows blue update later in the year.

So I bought a y510p a couple of months back and due to an 8.1 upgrade bug I've had to reinstall windows however according to the site it should be on the underside of the laptop, it was never there. Anyone know where it might be located? manual included or something? do I need to contact support?

I should mention I have used my universitys key in the mean time so if the old one was on a bios or something it may be lost so how would I be able to get the original back

I have also been to the same issue, but also could not find where the activation code. So I read all your posts replies.
I did not know how to do, so I did the same with your decision to re-install. Bought a new Key.
The new Key useful, the key is to buy when I was very cheap. If you first buy a new Key, you can go to the store www.aakeys.com I purchased to see, really great.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

the UUID number is not your Windows Key.  Did you use the recommended Key Viewer that is mentioned in this message thread ?  That utility must be run in order to retrieve and view the Key.

 

Here is another free utility that will view your Windows Key......
