Hello,

We just bought a refurbished Lenovo T500 from a reseller. The computer was advertised as having Windows XP Pro, and arrived with XP Pro installed, but no media or license key.

The COA sticker on the back is for OEM Vista Business - can I legally use Win XP Pro? How can I reinstall if something goes wrong?

Thanks!
