Problem with product and its key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Once upon a time, when I was foolish and didn't want to pay anything, I upgraded this laptop from Windows 7 Home Premium to Ultimate; I used a product key found online. Right now windows is complaining it's not a genuine version. I've tried many methods (slui isn't functioning) on CMD and such but it's spitting the original key back out, saying it's invalid. I believe the problem is that the product key is for Home Premium which is why it's saying it's invalid. Here's my log from MGATool.

  • The installed Product Key for Ultimate has never been, and will never be, a legitimate one - it's the infamous Lenovo Stolen Key.

    You may have an Activation Exploit installed in an attempt to bypass activation and validation requirements.

    It is not possible to 'downgrade' any edition of Windows to a lesser one without a reformat/reinstall.

    You need to use the manufacturer's Recovery media to reinstall the original OS, and then work from there.

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