Lenovo IdeaPad 410p Re-install Windows?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got a new 410p from Lenovo, I cannot install Windows 8 on my new SSD I put in it.

It is giving the the Invalid Key for the Operating System. It looks like Lenovo has the Windows key built into the BIOS or something of that nature, and It looks like it is just some Windows 8 version and now Windows 8 Pro which I have an ISO of.

They said it is $59.99 to get a recovery CD, so do any of you know where I can get a Windows 8 ISO that will work with the laptop or know a way to work around it? This is just becoming a nightmare.

If all else fails, contact MS and have them verify what the key is.
