i want to clean install win 8 on my new lenovo, i have heard that OEM key is stored in the bios and is automatically applied on a clean install. i have downloaded windows 8 file from internet- en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso .
i tried installing windows, when i click on "install now" , it automatically shows the message- "the product key entered does not match any of the windows images available for installation,enter a different product key". when i click "ok", it goes back to the initial start screen where there is an option to either install or repair windows 8.
i have no idea what is the problem here , the product key should have been automatically applied, but here it is showing the error message. do i need to ask for a DVD from lenovo?
