„Blame on Lenovo“, Windows 8 license only in the BIOS available


What a shame, not only that you have to by the OEM Windows 8 License for your new lenovo notebook, also you will not get the license. Normally i would be a sticker under your notebook, that would reveal this number. But this license is only in the BIOS of your notebook. So you are not able to get the license. Lenovo does also not react on license requests. Even after opening a ticket and a complaint, it was not possible to get the license. So i do not use Windows 8 Professional on my new notebook. And i was forced to buy a windows 8 professional license and now i even can not use it on another pc, because i won’t get the license from lenovo.

What a shame on customer treatment and user rights. Lenovo was not answering questions, also you are not informed during your order of this handling of licenses. Even after your order, they have not been able to show you some paper, where it is said, that you would not get the actual license. As a customer, you will be just ignored and no questions will be ansered upon your request, regarding the license.

Also there will be no Software CD delivered with your new notebook. You have to order a recovery CD for extra money. So you might ending up 2000-3000$ and have to pay extra for the software you have already payed.
