I wonder if this was why the Lenovo I bought last year had two extra partitions pre-installed that only DISKPART saw. I blew them straight to data hell, along with Windows 8, when I was upgrading it to Windows 7 but I've always wondered what the hell they existed for. I doubt the certificate survived the formatting but now I have to check.
Last time I buy a product from them though, I'll tell you that. I knew I should have just plunked down the extra 200 bucks for the MacBook Air and Windows 7 license.
