Wn 7 Professional says evaluation copy, it isn't, doesn't have the SP1 RC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Winver reports Version 6.1 Build 7601: SP 1 v. 721

    The machine doesn't have KB976932m but just to be safe I uninstalled SP1 and re-installed it. 

    But it still insists this is an evaluation copy and that it expires in two days. I didn't build this machine, but we have a volume license, we don't use evaluation copies (its expressly forbidden).  This is my dev box with a ton of stuff installed, so rebuilding it from scratch will be a nightmare (and blow some deadlines). 

    Help!

     


    Down there somewhere, its just ones and zeros.

  • Like all Microsoft pre-release software, Windows 7 SP1 Beta is time-bombed and set to expire on November 30, 2011. The platform will begin to highlight the imminent expiration date as of August 30, 2011. Windows 7 SP1 Beta will expire and be treated in a manner similar to non-genuine software even if the underlying Windows 7 RTM copy is perfectly genuine.

    According to the report, you have SP1 RC installed

  • And yet, when I try to uninstall it from a command prompt, the message comes back  KB976932 is not installed on this computer.

  • Perhaps someone performed a disk cleanup of the Service Pack 1 Beta and removed the required uninstall files which now precludes uninstalling SP1 Beta.  See: Windows 7 SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool

  • Possible, although I think I would still see it in there. 

     

    In any event, does that mean at the end of November the machine turns in to a brick and I have to install Windows from scratch? I'm pretty sure that is what it means, but I'm hoping for a different answer.

  • Yes.  The instructions for SP1 RC, which as Noel has noted is reported installed by the MGADiag tool, warns that you may need to reinstall Windows.   You would not see the SP in your list of updates if you have used Disk Cleanup to remove the supporting files.  That's why I never try to save space by doing that.  You also can't use a gold dvd to do a repair install if SP1 is installed so there are lots of good reasons to leave the installation files in place.
