However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.

15 UPDATES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible for the upgrade. After the upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software that you upgraded. After upgrade, you can no longer use the software that you upgraded.

So, if you are always denied, you will just have to reinstall Windows XP or Vista and let it do the verification of eligibility.

  • Find product key Windows 8 on a computer that does not start

    I bought a laptop Lenovo, a little over a year and all of a sudden, he started a loop when I try to turn it on. The computer seems to want to start with the Lenovo logo and then I get a blue screen with an irritating "your PC has encountered a problem and needs to restart." We are only collecting the error information and then we'll restart for you. : ("message and then the computer restarts and does it again and again and and more.")

    I brought my friend who is a technician and he said that I need the product key Windows 8 to create the Recovery Disk/USB. So I checked the area in which my laptop has been delivered to and there is no product key is located. Is it possible to find even if my computer does not start? I can access the configuration screen, but I can't find anywhere here either.

    Any help with this would be really appreciated.

    Thank you


    With Windows 8, Microsoft changed stickers that have the product key that the user must type in during the installation of the operating system of new embedded BIOS product key. The idea is that by eliminating the tile, you eliminate one of the easiest ways for nefarious users get a legitimate product key. The sticker also eliminating product key removes any concern that the vignette could get damaged while at the same time eliminating the long and irritating the process of typing in various letters and numbers in the installation of the operating system.

    If the user has to reinstall the operating system on a computer with Windows 8, the installation process automatically captures key software product of the motherboard BIOS without input from the user. This means that these stickers familiar windows product key will no longer appear on Windows 8 computers.

    You must use the recovery partition to reinstall Windows 8, if its not functional, you should ask a Lenovo recovery media:


    Computers laptops Lenovo include a function called the Lenovo OneKey Recovery button, which is used to boot into the recovery environment and to reinstall Windows.

    If this does not work, contact technical support

    Hello Toshiba Help Center

    IM bluebird.jeff

    Hello, Jeff

    At first, I must say that it is not toshiba Help Center, but user forum created by Toshiba, so if you wait for the response from Toshiba people here you are in the wrong place.
    In any case, in this forum, you can pick up some very useful information and a lot of people here can help you with your problems.

    Return to described the issue.
    Unfortunately you do not understand how it works with the product key and Windows Setup, so I'll try to help you with this.
    Each computer toshiba laptop comes with preinstalled operating system (recovery image) and the product key at the bottom of your laptop belongs to this version. With other words: when you buy the new laptop, you have to pay for hardware, operating system and a license for this preinstalled OS. Product key at the bottom is not a kind of universal product key and cannot be used for activation of another version of Windows.

    You can use the delivered Toshiba recovery disc that contains mage replicated several times and each time you will have activated the operating system. When you use the Microsoft disk for the installation of the OS you must have valid product key which belongs to this particular version.

    In your case product key is for Vista, and you cannot use it for Win7 activation. This product key is... unnecessary.

    If you have any other questions you are welcome.

    I bought my Dell computer in 2012 and had to reload my Windows 7 but my product key at the bottom of my computer is worn and I was wondering if it is possible for Microsoft to have a copy of it.

    No, unfortunately.

    But since you bought a Dell computer, it provides a DVD of free relocation for each model, which is a clean copy of the OS without the bloatware factory but just a logo and a standalone activation.  Order here: need backup Media? Reference Dell U.S.

    I would not use the drivers disk unless you need to install the driver of LAN network to get online.  Instead, follow these steps to clean reinstall Windows 7, install all your Important and optional Windows updates until no more are available, so all still pilots missing in Device Manager must be imported from the Web page of the Dell Support downloads for your tag number.

    Other than that if you still have the recovery partition on the disk Dell and it does not start after restoration of PC Dell Windows 7

    Then, you can try to run it manually after the recovery Partition to start using EasyBCD .  This also activates the self.
