~2 year old Windows 7 install, now not valid. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This copy of Windows 7 is about 2 years old.  Purchased when i bought a Compaq computer.

    The hard drive and  original installation of Windows 7 is the ONLY remaining part of that computer.

    I kinda feel like the cops just knocked down my front door and want to see my receipt for a couch i bought 2 years ago.

    can we fix this?

  • As Carey says, the motherboard change invalidated the copy of Windows on the hard drive.  You are using an OEM SLP copy of Windows.

    Windows License Type: OEM SLP

    OEM SLP licenses require specific codes in an SLIC table in the BIOS which are only present in the original mobo.  Your retail Gigabyte mobo does not have the needed table.

    BIOS valid for OA 2.0: yes, but no SLIC table

    This explanation is from the Microsoft OEM FAQs at

    http://www.microsoft.com/OEM/en/licensing/sblicensing/Pages/licensing_faq.aspx

    Q. Can a PC with an OEM Windows operating system have its motherboard upgraded and keep the
    same license? What if it was replaced because it was defective?

    A. Generally, an end user can upgrade or replace all of the
    hardware components on a computer—except the motherboard—and still retain the
    license for the original Microsoft OEM operating system software. If the
    motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new
    computer has been created. Microsoft OEM operating system software cannot be
    transferred to the new computer, and the license of new operating system
    software is required. If the motherboard is replaced because it is defective,
    you do not need to acquire a new operating system license for the PC as
    long as the replacement motherboard is the same make/model or the same
    manufacturer's replacement/equivalent, as defined by the manufacturer's
    warranty.

  • Unfortunately, you must have a Compaq motherboard for the original Windows 7 SLP OEM license to be valid.
