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?
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.
