Pirated Windows- Need Help!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few months ago, my friend gave me his old computer. It works properly. Now when I validate it, it says it isn't genuine windows. I can't find any product key or anything. I can't even find the COA sticker on my computer. Is there any way to convert my copy of windows to genuine. I've tried updating my product key, but I don't have the product key, so it didn't work. I saw on another post that you can participate in a genuine advantage offer or something like that. How do I participate?

                                                                           Thanks

  • It says I have to submit a cd and a original receipt, but I don't have any cd. The windows is already installed when I got it from my friend. Is there any other way to get genuine windows?
