    Hello guys, i've got a friend that has got an a Lenovo E530 laptop. That laptop has windows 7 installed originally from factory, but it has a sticky windows 8 logo. My question is, if he wants to format with an a clean windows 7 pro iso, he will use the key provided with this program?:

    Windows 9 Product key Viewer

    That program shows the windows 7 key in his machine.

    Thanks.

    Requires a certificate backup too...

    Backup the 7 activation with this; http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/27341-Advanced-Tokens-Manager-The-Activation-Backup-Solution
    Clean install, restore activation. (you must clean install the same previous version...i.e. Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate
    :)

    Thanks, in an another forum, people told me that i can't do that, because it has a license downgrade of Windows 8. People said that, because instead of the sticky windows 7 coa, it has only the sticky Windows 8, i can't do that. Thanks. Another question, if i do an a fresh install in a msata instead on the old hard disk, the license of windows 7 will be ok in the msata or i will have problems?.

    Another question, how to backup the certificate?.

    Thanks.
