Been looking at a Lenovo laptop that is one of those ones that has Win 7 Pro 64bit installed when you get it, but has Win 8 license embedded I guess on the mobo so it's ready to upgrade to 8 which I'm not interested in doing.

My question is this... how do I obtain the license keys for the copy of Win 7 that is running on the laptop?

I want to do a fresh install to eliminate the bloatware without having to go out and buy an OEM copy of Win 7. 

Is it possible to find out what the Win 7 license keys are?  Surely they can be found somewhere on the system.

Any ideas / directions on how to do this would be greatly appreciated...
