  • Unfortunately the copy of Windows 7 that is installed is Pirated & has been illegally activated using a hackers loader application.

    Your BIOS information is showing as having a DELL SLIC Table & a Windows 7 Dell Ultimate OEM SLP serial. This is not right at all.

    You will need to use the recovery partition to restore the system back to the original Operating System the COA license on the bottom of the laptop was licensed for. If the recovery partition is no longer there you can order a set of recovery discs from the manufacturer for a small fee to restore the system. Alternatively you can purchase a legitimate copy of Windows 7 from the Microsoft Store or another reputable source (not eBay) and do a clean install.

  • Yes, I was in fact the whole time in honest belief I had a legal beta version of Windows 7 installed.

    Should have known better.

  • I see what you did there OP. Don't try and remove or edit the BIOS information from your report

    So you can try and attempt to fix the problem with the loader. It will still be pirated.

  • That is correct. 

    And I think the OP has probably realized after I posted,  what he has done wrong in the loader settings for his Pirated copy.

    If it is indeed the loader variant I am thinking of & he has corrected it.

    The Beta for Win 7 expired long ago – and you would have received numerous warnings about its expiry.
