Build 7600.. Not a valid copy of Windows 7.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased an eMachines PC last year around xmas.. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium on it and until now I have never had a problem with it at all..  I'm not sure what I did, what I do remember is that this 'watermark' suddenly appeared after I started Windows Backup and Restore.. or perhaps it was because I was looking for RAID options in the BIOS, which I did NOT save any changes to (am still running a non-RAID setup. anyway here's the info from the tool:

  • Hello Kris624,

      There are two types of consumer Licenses Retail and OEM.  One of the main differences between the  End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for each License is that 

    Retail : Non-Hardware Bound. Meaning it can me moved to any number of different PCs, as long as it is only installed on one PC at a time.

    OEM : Hardware Bound. Meaning it is only licensed to run on the first PC it is installed on.

     

     Now how does the Motherboard fit into all this?

      Well a computer is basically just a bunch of modular components that can be added, removed and replaced. So there was a need to define what the Core component of the computer is. The component that defined a unique individual PC. 

     Microsoft (and I believe most of the computer industry)  decided that the Motherboard is the Core component of a PC.  So you can change out any component of a PC (except the Motherboard) and the PC remains that same unique individual PC.  But if you change the Motherboard, a New unique individual PC is created.  (CPU can be changed out without any effect on Licensing.  Only changing the Motherboard effects an OEM License).

      So, when an old Motherboard is removed, from a PC, and a new motherboard is installed and a new unique individual PC is created, the OEM Licensing that was bound to the old PC is no longer valid on the new PC.

    (Note: There is an exception to this rule.  If the Motherboard was replace by the Original Manufacturer due to a defect with the original Motherboard, the OEM License is transferred to the newly created PC)

     

      In your case, you have an eMachine with an OEM SLP licensed version of Windows (OEM SLP Windows only come pre-installed on a PC from the factory and is engineered to only work with the Motherboard that originally came with the PC). Your PC no longer has the original eMachine Motherboard.  The OEM SLP version of Windows can tell that the current motherboard is not the original eMachine Motherboard and has gone into a Non-genuine state.

      -If you had the Motherboard replaced due to a defect, then you can continue using the original OEM software, you just need to replace the current Product key with the key listed on the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) sticker on the side or bottom of the PC (or in the case of a Laptop, sometimes located in the battery compartment).

      -If you had the Motherboard changed out as an Upgrade (or for any other reason then there was a defect with the original Motherboard) then the newly created PC is not licensed to use that OEM software.

     

    Hope that helps clarify the issue,

    The motherboard here is not  an eMachines one - which is why the OS is complaining. If it has been replaced under warranty, then fine - otherwise, your license has been 'killed' by the replacement, and you'll have to purchase a new license.

  • wow.. I have become somewhat of the computer enthusiast.  However, I did not know that upgrading the motherboard+cpu would cause the OS to no longer be genuine.  I'm not sure I see how one is directly related to the other?  How does one upgrade their system short of purchasing a brand new computer, when they are perfectly capable of upgrading single components?
