Will my Win7 install remain genuine? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just finished installing Windows 7 from a copy I bought off of eBay (took me 3 weeks to find one that looked legit!).  Everything looks good and it looks like it is genuine.  Can you confirm that it is genuine and that it isn't part of the MSDN keys that might get blacklisted in the near future, etc. ?  Thanks!

    As far as I can tell from this report, you're one of the very lucky (and very small!) minority who seems to have got a genuine copy of Windows.
    I would suggest installing SP1 and the WAT Update (KB971033) and running the report again - it may discover something that's not visible in this report.
     
    Certainly it's not one of the known MSDN CID's.
     
    What was your saving over 'conventional' outlets?

  • Hi Patrick60453,

     

      Congratulations, your 3 weeks of checking payed off.  The Windows 7 you purchased is Valid and Genuine. The key is under a Retail License and was first activated in Oct. of 2009 and has been activated 3 additional times all in Jan. of 2010.

     

      Of course this means it was used before you bought it, but that is not a problem since the key is under a Retail license with allows resale (Transfer of Ownership) and the ability the move the windows from one PC to another.

     

      The only problem (and it's a very small one) is that when you Activate the Windows on your PC, you may need to use the Activate By Phone method instead of Over the Internet. This is only due to the fact that it has already been activated a few time (on a different PC) in the past. It should only take a few minutes more then an Over the Internet activation.

    Thanks,


    Darin MS

  • Noel,

    Thank you for taking the time to review and reply to my post.  I have fully updated my Windows including SP1 and KB971033 as you suggested and attached the new MGDiag output for your review.  In the end, I saved about 20% over retail but it took a lot of time and even more logic to weed out the pirates.  Again, thank you.

    Hmmm - I can find reputable online retailers who offer 20% saving over MS Store prices :)
     
    OK - there's a small error there (which was also present in the initial report)
    This simply means that the system hasn't yet been through a Validation check.
    Please go to www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate - the system should validate fine, in which case you'll be offered IE9 and MSE for download.
    If you have any problems, post a new MGADiag report, and give the exact message from validation.
     
     
    Darin may have a comment when he gets into the office on Monday.  Otherwise, you're looking good to go.
