Windows 7 Home Premium activation

    Question

  • Just finished installing it on a machine. I of course made sure to check activate online right away during install. Yet it still says I have 30 days to activate it? Why is that? It has always been right away. I have included a Diag. report as well.

  • Hello FattysGoneWind,

      The reason why your Windows did not activate automatically (and why it will not manually activate) is because the key currently being used is a Keyless Install key.

      Vista and Windows 7 do not require a product key to be entered during install.  This is called a Keyless Install.  When Windows is installed using the keyless install method, Windows uses it own Keyless Install product key.  The Keyless Install product key acts as a Trial key and allows the user to use windows for 30 days.  Since the Keyless Install key is basicall a Trial key, it can not be activated.

     Please look at the Product Key listed in the Diagnostic Report (*****-*****-74XYM-BH4JX-XM76F).  That is a Keyless Install key for Windows 7 Home Premium.  Now compare that key to the key that came with your copy of Windows 7...different, right?
     Since I was not when you installed Windows, I don't know how your Windows came to be using the Keyless Install key.  Likely, you entered your Valid key during install, but may have mistyped something and Windows didn't accept the key but (for whatever reason) you continued the install.  Since the mistyped key wasn't accepted, Windows used it's own Keyless Install key.


    Resolution:

    To fix the problem, click the Start button, right click on Computer and select Properties. Click 'Change Product Key" and follow the directions to enter the Product Key that came with that copy of Windows.

    Thank you,
