Windows 7 Ultimate Not Legitimate after SP1 Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently had my copy of Windows 7 Ultimate updated to SP1 and got the dreaded not legitmate copy black screen.  I purchased the software from Shoparhive back in June of 2010.  I contacted them and they gave me an upated license key.  Can you confirm this is now legtimate or is still another MSDN key?  Here is the information from the diagnostic run:

    My thought is it will work until the next Windows service pack and then the process will start over again.  If this is the case, I will wipe the computer clean and install a copy of Windows 7 Pro OEM from Newgg.

    Thanks

  • I have checked the key and it is a Valid and Genuine key.

     

    I can't be sure without having seen a Diagnostic Report using the old Product Key, but I suspect that the old key was probably Genuine, as well.

     The reasons I believe this are

    A) (in my experience) a Pirate will never send you a Genuine key as a replacement for a Pirated key (giving a Genuine key would cost the pirate money and that is not what he is there to do...I mean why would he even have any Genuine keys around, anyways)

    and

    B)  Your Non-Genuine issue only occurred after a major change to your Windows (i.e. SP1) and while Cbarnhorst is correct about SP1 adding stronger WAT protections, a significant change to Windows is also a prime opportunity for issues to arise or pre-existing issues to be uncovered.  Some Windows issues (such as file corruption) can cause Windows to experience a Non-Genuine issue which is unrelated to the Genuineness of the Product Key being used.

     

    The fact that the company sent you a good replacement Product Key (in essence giving you two Windows for the price of one) 3+ months after you originally bought the software, suggests to me that this may be a trustworthy company but then again, seeing some of the review for the site, I'm not completely sure.

     

    Thank you,

    The upgrade to the Windows Activation Technology with SP1 increased the sophistication of the WAT software and that is what triggered the non-genuine notification.  The notification would not have happened if the software had been genuine.  This should not occur with a future service pack as long as the software is genuine.

    Note: OEM system builder licenses are not for consumers.  The purchaser of an SB pack is forbidden by the SB license from using the software on his own computer.  He is only granted the right to install the software on a computer for sale to a customer.  The correct license for DIYers is retail.

  • So how does one know if the new license key sent to me is genuine or not?

    That's what your report says.  It certainly is not an MSDN key.  You have to ask yourself 'How did this merchant come up with a new product key?'  Personally I would buy a copy of Windows from the Microsoft Store and forget the merchant.  Darin may be able to look up the key and confirm its genuineness, but there is nothing to go on in your report to show anything amiss.
