I have tried to do a Repair install many times.
Win7 Ultimate sp1 32bit
Lenovo Thinkpad W550s laptop
With Win7 showing windows is activated showing Genuine Microsoft software before the repair.
Every time it goes through all the motions and stops at a window asking me for the product key. The keyboard is frozen.
I have tried plugging in a USB keyboad.
I have tried disabling the internal keyboard in the laptop and leaving the USB keyboard plugged in during the entire process.
I have tried updating the internal keyboard drivers.
I have tried updating the BIOS.
I have copied the Win7 CD to the hard drive and I'm running the Repair install from the hard drive.
I have the correct product key. I just can't enter it because the keyboard is not responding.
Do you have any ideas how I can get past this product key screen?
