  • Question

  • So awhile back I bought a ASUS laptop with Windows Vista installed on it.  It came with the eligible update for Windows 7, so the disk came with.  This disk says its the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Media.  I did install Windows 7 and used it for some time until the asked for a product key.  But the thing is I never received a key code with the upgrade disc.  Therefore my computer has now been asking me to activate windows because my 60 day trial is up.  I don't know what to do.

  • You need to find the product key that goes with the dvd.  If you cannot find the sleeve for the dvd then contact Asus for assistance.  You still have four weeks to activate.

  • If you do not have the product key and cannot get from your source for the software then you do have to replace the copy of Windows with a new one or remove it and go back to using Vista.

    So awhile back I bought a ASUS laptop with Windows Vista installed on it.  It came with the eligible update for Windows 7, so the disk came with.  This disk says its the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Media.  I did install Windows 7 and used it for some time until the asked for a product key.  But the thing is I never received a key code with the upgrade disc.  Therefore my computer has now been asking me to activate windows because my 60 day trial is up.  I don't know what to do.
     
     
    The trial is usually only 30 days – and as far as I am aware, the ‘free upgrade’ disks had to be applied for, rather than come with the system.
    Please describe the disk in more detail – if it’s genuine, it should either be a fully-hologrammed disk or be a professionally-produced disk with the manufacturer’s logo and other details on it.
     
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, 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 response.

  • Thank you for the reply.  The disk has more info on it and it says ASUS on the top because thats how i got it through my laptop.  On the disk it says

    Microsoft This disc contains 32 - bit software only Recovery DVD Disc 1 of 1 N3532 V1.0

     

    So does this mean it has to do with my Recovery CD for my laptop?

    Unfortunately your vendor may have sold you a pup :(
    It looks to me as if the machine is based on a Retail motherboard, rather than a genuine Asus one – which means that the computer itself is a counterfeit, rather than just the OS being off-centre.
    The BIOS SLIC table for an Asus machine should refer to Asus – rather than NEC, as it does here – and it should also have some reference to Asus in the ‘Other data <SYSTEM>’ section.

    It looks that way to me – but it may be a refurb, where Asus replaced the motherboard and neglected to refresh the BIOS with the correct one for the computer.

    Windows License Type: Retail

    It isn't looking for an SLIC table.  It is Type 5.

    Actually I think it is the free upgrade dvd (from Vista to Windows 7) that was offered in 2009 to facilitate sales at the time Windows 7 was about to release.  It would be a recovery dvd and it would only be the architecture of the Vista that had shipped on the computer (because it was replacing an OEM copy it would not include both x86 and x64 dvds).  Maybe Darin can find out how that worked out as a Type 5 license.   And maybe the dvd wasn't used to do this installation.  And maybe the SLIC hack can be removed and that will cure the problem.

    The problem is that the Motherboard doesn’t appear to qualify as an Asus board – and therefore wouldn’t be entitled to a free upgrade under any circumstances.
    The Key in use is the Default Key for Win7 Pro – so no valid key was entered during the install – which shows as being Retail, but is blocked from activation.

  • Unfortunately, the ASUS sponsored upgrade to Windows 7 program concluded over a year ago.  You really should have had your ducks in order back then.  If you now wish to upgrade to Windows 7, please visit the Microsoft Store and purchase an upgrade version of Windows 7.

  • Before you can use an upgrade product key you need to ensure that the copy of Windows on your computer is genuine.  You can buy the original Windows by getting the recovery dvds for your model from Asus (for a reasonable fee) or from a third party like Recovery-Disks.com.  Once you have restored the original Vista you can upgrade to Windows 7 using a retail upgrade license (not Anytime Upgrade). 

    Or you can purchase a full license copy of Windows 7.  If you purchase Windows 7 Home Premium you may be able to cure the issue by just changing the product key on the System Properties page.
