Question

I had to reformat and reinstall windows due to a system failure.  The only disc i have is the Lenovo Windows 7 drivers disc and it doesn't contain Windows 7.  I downloaded a copy of Windows 7, then installed the Lenovo drivers and OneKey Recovery, but now I'm getting a message telling me I need to activate Windows 7. Where can I get this?

Answer

Somewhere on the computer is the Microsoft COA. (Certificate of Authenticity).

The activation code or Product Key is on that.


It is a series of 25 letters and numbers, split into groups of 5.

 

When you enter them, Windows automatically capitalizes and adds dashes.

 

If activation fails, follow instructions to activate by phone.
