Trying to use a non-genuine Disk with a genuine key. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok so this is not the most politically correct way to go about this issue but here are the details. I had a laptop, it fell off of my car. Next I built a computer used the restore disk from the non-usable laptop and was able to get a new Key from windows to do this. It worked fine, but that was before my windows crashed and I had to fix the boot loader, and other files. anyways I ended up reinstalling windows. Problem is that I could not find the original disk so I D/L a disk on a torrent. I went to activate with the Key that I had written down but to no avail. I think this may be an issue with the version of windows that was downloaded vs. the original version. Here are my genuine advantage results. Also this is absolutly an OEM key that I am attempting to use.

  • Hello pantalones,

    Sorry to inform you that what you are doing is a violation of the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for the Windows XP that came with the now-destroyed laptop.

    OEM licenses for Windows (the license that was installed on the laptop was an OEM license, as evidenced by the "restore CD" which is only used by major manufacturers issuing OEM licenses) are valid only on the computer onto which they were first installed and are not permitted by the EULA to be moved to any other computer.  When that original computer is no longer usable, then the OEM license for Windows is no longer usable and it dies with the original computer, in this case your dead laptop.

    In order to properly license Windows on the computer you built, you need to purchase a full retail license for the Windows version and edition of your choice and install it.  If you can live with the restriction on moving the license to another computer and no direct tech support from Microsoft, then you might consider purchasing a systembuilder/OEM/small manufacturer license kit for Windows, which are typically less expensive than the retail licenses.  There is a lot of counterfeit software being sold, so buy only from a trusted online or local retailer.

    Finally, it is very risky to install Windows from a downloaded iso.  Microsoft has reported that a large percentage of these downloads have rootkits, malware, and other unwanted programs embedded within the operating system files, and these changes often compromise the reliability and stability of the OS as well as the security of your personal information.
