i am sorry if i have not been able to explain what i am trying to do. so again, i bought lenovo that came with win 8, i now want to install a SSD and of course win 8 on this SSD. what are my options?
Click on the link to down load the media. It will ask you for a product ID. You will use the generic key. When you get to the step to install or create media you will make your installation media that will do the install to your new SSD.
Once you have created your installation media swap out your existing hard drive with the SSD.
Use the media you just created to do the new install. If you make a USB installation media then tap F12 continuously as the computer is booting and tell it to boot from the USB. (You need an 8GB minimum USB if I remember correctly) A DVD should auto boot. If not tap the F12 at boot up and select the DVD as the installation media.
You may need to enter the generic code a second time to start the installation process or it may pick it up from the bios automatically. Hopefully it will pick up your product ID automatically and you will be activated. If not post back and someone will help you with the activation process.
