  • I purchased a Windows 7 Ultimate edition and installed it on my old computer....This computer's hard drive has crashed so I bought a new computer.....I did the Windows upgrade anytime on the new one and installed Windows 7 Ultimate however it keeps telling me that I can not use the product key with this computer....I am assuming that it's because it is associated with the old computer....Is is possible to just transfer the Ultimate upgrade I purchased from the old computer to my new one and get it to activate?

  • MGA Diagnostic Report Required:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.
