It's basically a violated license in the first place. It is not meant to be transferred to a new machine. I suspect it'll work just fine, though. I mean how many times do i have to say it? When it boils down to it no one is ever going to have their nose bloodied over this. Without it, this discussion has reached an impasse. Any way, is it still possible still purchase Windows 7 keys? It suggests contacting them for information, probably because they might have recovery media available for the downgrade. Many thanks for a reply, Paul.
Is this the only way to get windows 7 product keys? Why are you going on so much about this? This is a laptop sold to a consumer. They would have access to a volume licensing agreement with a downgrade right. That is the only legit way to do it. Can someone here direct me to the correct place? Just because you fail to understand and want wont to argue it ad nauseum only distracts from the good advice he has been given. There also needs to be a downgrade solution involving a clean install of Windows. Yes, which is obtained through Lenovo.
And so long as you still have your 7 key you will be able to go back to 7. It will essentially become useless on any computer including this Yoga 12. I made the mistake of assuming Windows 7 could be installed on multiple computers in the same household just like previous versions of Windows. Technically yes it does, Flubber is correct. Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate allow for two physical processors, providing the best performance on these computers. Otherwise you will only receive Windows 7 Pro Product Key. This has just gotten painful and pointless.
I wish to purchase a new product key, in order to activate the windows, but when I go to the Microsoft Store - I only see the following version available to buy : - Windows 7 Home Premium - Windows 7 Professional - Windows 7 Ultimate I cannot find a place where I can buy a product key for Windows 7 Enterprise. Seems the cheapest legal way to get it. You can't downgrade by using and installing a license key that is in breach of a licensing agreement. You don't know, and it's getting a little painful trying to educate you. That's exactly how you're supposed to do it. Get a hold of a Win 7 disk or download elsewhere. If you acquired a device from a manufacturer or installer with a Professional version of Windows preinstalled on it, you may use either a Windows 8.
If you want to downgrade to Windows 7 Pro on the Lenovo Yoga 12 laptop the complete 100% legit way for your laptop. But it is the honest truth in my opinion. Or go Linux, free but needs much more effort instead. Which is entirely what he has accidentally done. They'll likely disallow any reactivations on the phone which means no more activation codes. This web page might help you find it. That's not a legal way and hasn't got any thing to do with the downgrade right.
When it refuses to activate you get presented with this screen. And it's the clause we need to see to clarify our argument. If the earlier version includes different components, any terms for those components in the agreement that comes with the earlier version apply to your use of such components. You'd think so if you didn't read Microsoft's downgrade rights procedure. A good thread with good information has been ruined. This has just gotten painful and pointless.
Then, move your mouse over a thumbnail to preview the window full-screen. There most probably is for business clients. There also needs to be a downgrade solution involving a clean install of Windows. Just because you fail to understand and want to argue it ad nauseum only distracts from the good advice already given. They may both have downgrade rights but those downgrade rights are obtained through two different methods. When it is determined that the end user has an eligible Windows license, the customer service representative will provide a single-use activation code to activate the software. At any time, you may replace an earlier version with the version you originally acquired.
The laptop I want to downgrade is Lenovo Yoga 12, it came with Windows 8 pro, I have already installed windows 7 pro on it, and activated it with the product key from X201, X201 is also currently activated with the same key. Any thing else is just not legit. Well we shouldn't be encouraging some one to go down the illegimate route when it comes to Windows licensing that could be fraught with issues. However, you're never going to have an issue using them the way you describe. Stop for a moment and actually read the links I've given. I wouldn't be breaking the license agreement this way in a buisness environment, though.
