  • Hello siimba,

    Your best course of action is to contact the laptop's manufacturer and request to be sent the Recovery or Reinstallation CDs for that exact make and model.  That will ensure your latop has Genuine Windows!

    If you post the make and model here we might be able to give you a link to start.
