How do I go back to the original version of Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So a couple months ago I decided I wanted to upgrade my version of Windows 7 from Windows Home Premium or Basic or whatever to Windows Ultimate. Yesterday I got a notification that it is not a Genuine version so I am asking if there is a way to go back to the original version without having to reset my whole system? I can no longer see the key that is on the bottom of my PC and I do not have a disk therefore I cannot do it that way.

    Current PC Specs:

    Windows 7 Ultimate
    Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard

    Model: HP 2000 Notebook PC

    x64 Bit OS

  • The installation is definitely counterfeit - the Product Key is the infamous Lenovo Stolen Key.

    You must use either the manufacturer's Recovery media to return the system to its original ex-factory state, or reformat and reinstall using retail media together with the Product Key from your COA sticker on the machine's case.

  • If your original install was an OEM version, you may be able to contact HP for a Recovery CD, but that would put your PC back to the state it was the day it was taken out of the box.

    Please do not read this sentence. Please ignore the previous sentence.

  • To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
