Windows 7 Pirated - Possible to Upgrade? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My friend's computer crashed due to a virus, and he SUPPOSEDLY had it "fixed." Whoever "fixed" it, simply installed the Windows 7 Ultimate Edition on top of whatever system he used to have.  HOWEVER, he later found out that it wasn't genuine.  He conveniently can't reach his friend, and I got tossed in the mix-up...trading art-work for computer work.  Though quite proficient with any OS before XP, I haven't had much experience with Windows 7.

    I'm trying to determine if I need to buy the full version of Windows 7 - Home Premium (which is all he really needs).  Or if I am able to simply purchase the upgrade.  There's quite a price difference.  Hoping for the upgrade, but if not, I need to know.

    For reference of what's happened, here are the results of the MGA Diagnostic Tool

  • The computer is non-genuine because it is using an activation exploit known as a loader and the blocked lenovo W7 ultimate key. I would recommend a clean install, formating the drive in question. An upgrade for Vista or 7 must be started withing a working, activated windows installation to qualify as an upgrade install (you can still format by selecting custom install and instructing setup to format the disk).

    To use the upgrade you would need to install the original OS (probably XP based on the bios date) and then install a windows 7 upgrade product, premium being the most cost affective. Look at the bottom of the PC for a coa sticker, that is the version of windows that should be installed, if it is XP or better you can purchase an upgrade product.

    If you can not install a qualifying OS a full retail version will be required.

  • So, if he doesn't have the original Windows XP disc, I'll just have to buy the Windows 7 outright?  What if I used the copy of Windows XP that I have on my personal PC, until I upgrade his? Possible?

  • No, once you use the license to upgrade you can't use it again until the upgraded OS is removed or used to upgrade a different license.
