I'm guessing the ThinkPad had a Retail Win 7 OS which the seller has kept and palmed me off with the fake . The many many DCMA notices attest to the efficiency of the con with the fake Windows Ultimate.

eBay & PayPal will SLAP the seller & reverse the transaction.

Do i need this ?

Hi there
sometimes this works.

Go to CHANGE Product key via Computer==> properties.
Enter the Key (not the product id).

This normally works.

In that case, everything you need to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
is in the blue link.

I would wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command by booting the DVD to access DISKPART At PC Startup.

Wait until after install and all updates are completed before importing any missing drivers or software from the Lenovo Support Downloads webpage for your model so you know for sure that it is needed.

There's a slight chance a Recovery partition may still reside on the HD which we can help you try to run from boot to recovery to Factory Condition. Post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map if you want to try this to see how you like the Factory Preinstall. However the Clean Reinstall is a superior install.
