MS Licensing key / Creation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I purchased Lenovo laptop with Windows Vista Home premium installed. For a technical issue, I was told to delete the MS Licensing key from the registry editor, saying that the key will be automatically created when the machine is rebooted. But it did not recreated the key.

    I have two queries in this regard.

    1. Could you please let me know how to recreate this MS Licensing key?
    2. Will my laptop work properly without this key?

    I greatly appreciate your immediate response in this regard.

    Thank you,

  • Hello Devibala,

    Curious who told you to delete the MS Licensing key frmo the registry editor? Do you have the original software which came with your Lenovo @ the time you physically purchased the system? I recommend you to contact Lenovo Technical support and ask them for guidance. Also I would guess you may have to reimage your laptop. If so please ensure you back up all of your information.

    Take care,
