Is my Windows 7 Genuine? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a hand me down computer that originally came with Windows 98 installed and was upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium prior to me getting it. I am now wondering if Windows 7 is genuine as I have had a lot of problems with Windows 10 update failing. I did not receive the Windows 10 icon or subscribe yet. But a Windows 10 update is failing with error code 80240020. I have tried all the suggestions to remedy this to no avail. Thus my concern if Windows 7 is geniune.  Here is the results from running the genuine diagnostics tool.

  • It looks good to me - Alienware didn't exist when Windows 98 was released (in fact I think the first OS they used was XP)

    This machine was manufactured in late 2009 according to the BIOS date (and probably ran Win98 very badly! - unless it was in a VM).

    As such it should have a Windows 7 COA sticker on it - does it? - either on the case, or in the battery compartment.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

  • Thank you for replying, Noel.  The Windows 98 came from the original configuration on Dell's support site for the computer. I do not see a Windows 7 COA sticker on the computer case. As I said, it was a hand me down , all I got was the tower. No software etc.  Thus my concern. Think I'll just bite the bullet and buy a copy and do a clean install. After 6-7 years of use it could use it. .  Thanks again.
