Lenovo activation fails after MS Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Yesterday a customer got some MS Updates on a brand new Lenovo T510. After that Windows lost activation and told OS is pirated. The installation ist a valid Lenovo preinstall, Windows 7, 64 bit. Genuine Microsoft Sticker is attached. Lenovo support told: Reinstall, which is nearly impossible due too extensible configurations. That might take 2 whole workdays, which is more expensive as the notebook itself. Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance. Chris

  • Why not activate by phone?

    How to activate Windows 7 manually
    1) Click Start, and in the Search box type:   slui.exe  4
    2) Next press the 'ENTER' key
    3) Select your 'Country' from the list.
    4) Choose the 'Phone Activation' option.
    5) Stay on the phone and wait for a person to help you with activation.

    Tell him your COA key (from the sticker), and it should be done.
