Hi Guy's I bought another laptop, but the thing is that it says that the product has been tested to the bios - what does this really mean?

In the description itself. I have not switched it on yet. as it needs an O/S, which I do need. I'm looking for Windows Pro, download.

OK, then I guess what Amy is mentioning is correct, that it can boot to the BIOS.

Ean:

I am assuming that is a second-hand or refurbished/reconditioned laptop.

What is its brand name and model name and model number and serial number/service tag number?

What is the exact Windows version on its Certificate-Of-Authenticity sticker - if it has one?

Ean,

I've deleted the image because it contained the COA key which should never be published in public as it can be used by someone else and then you would no longer be able to use it if necessary.

Please just reply to the specific questions in a reply here. Thanks. :)

The serial doesn't appear to be correct? Can you check Command Prompt by typing in wmic bios get serialnumber and confirm that is the same serial as you noted?
