Linx 7 recovery - will not activate

Postby marceboy » May 17th, 2015, 3:59 pm

After many hours, I've been able to recover my Linx 7 tablet via a usb recovery, and to get all the drivers working.

I did retain my product key, but if I use it to activate windows 8.1 then I told the key cannot be used for this product?

Any ideas?

Many thanks!

I think that I figured this out. The Linx 7 is pre-installed with Windows 8.1 Bing Edition. I've installed 8.1 pro.

Time to buy a key!

Yeah, these come with WinBing - if you have installed Pro you'd need the equivalent key to activate it with.

Obviously with Pro, you do get quite a few more features but it does cost more than tablet itself!

You can't download it as such, it's not available officially to end users. The idea is to create a recovery disk using the built in function.

If you do need, you'll have to find it on the internet. The filename you need for the Linx is:
Code: Select all
X19-57135_SW_DVD9_NTRL_Win_with_Bing_8.1_32BIT_Eng_Intl_OEM.img
