Have a windows 8 Lenovo Thinkpad twist, the hard drive crashed and I put a new one, now the product key is blocked, Microsoft says not their problem and Lenovo states the same. Is there a responsible party or am I just screwed, the laptop is not under warranty any longer.
Ok. Describe the reinstall precess for us what exactly did you do? Use as much detail as possible all the way up to the blocked message.I\’m assuming windows 8 was preinstalled on this system?
