I'll just use my OEM key on another system.
Ugh... So finally went to try this today, same OEM key that I couldn't use on the W500 because of the whole touch screen fiasco... Now I'm told I can't activate this copy of Windows on the new PC, I haven't talked to a person yet but even calling the automated number told me that my product was invalid...?
So what? This key is just burned up booting Windows once or twice on a machine I couldn't use it on because of some BS restriction that forced me to buy another copy anyway? I don't even remember activating it on the W500, oh that's right, it activates automatically so I never had a chance to save that key in the first place.
