Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine. Yes, ANOTHER one. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've had this computer in this configuration for close to three months, and suddenly, this morning, my desktop goes black and I'm informed that it's not genuine.


    Here is the output of my MGADiag:

    Is there any way to fix this that won't cost me $150+?

    Also, why did the forum force me to create a new username in order to post this?

    The product ID -068- Indicates a not for resale MSDN account. If you are not the account holder and you purchased this in a retail box, the box and it's contents are counterfeit. Demand an immediate refund from the seller

  • Ouch!

    I'm on a fixed income, and it'll take me 3 months to raise the money to do that.

    Is there any way to temporarily validate?  I really don't want to lose my computer so soon after getting it back (it had a motherboard failure)...

  • Is there any way to temporarily validate?

    Not that I know of.

    You could consider a lesser edition of windows such as home premium or professional. That would save you some money. Just make sure you purchase from a legitimate retailer. There are thousands of bogus discount sellers out there.


    Found this on a microsoft website.

     When Windows 7 fails validation, a message reminding you that Windows might not be genuine begins appearing on your desktop. You’ll also receive reminders when you log in and at intervals while you're using Windows, and your desktop wallpaper will change to a plain black background. You can reset your desktop background to a favorite wallpaper or different color, but it will reset to this plain black background every 60 minutes. In addition, you won't be able to receive optional (non-security) updates from Windows Update. This experience will continue until Windows is genuine.

    If you are using Microsoft Security Essentials, I have read it will stop working after 30 days.

  • Yeah, I'm looking at buying an OEM of Home Premium from NewEgg (the machine was a scratct-rebuild, came from Cyberpower originally).  I can do that early next month.

    I did find instructions on using the rearm command, which seems to have worked (though the Windows Properties window shows 3 days while the diagnostic shows 30).  Hopefully, that'll buy me enough time.

    Really, for my use, Home Premium is enough.  I didn't even notice a difference between Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Ultimate except the splash screen and system stability...

    Thanks for your help!

  • Professional provides everything that Ultimate does except multi-lingual interfaces and Bitlocker.  Professional will remain in Microsoft Support until 2010 while Ultimate and Home Premium will go out of support at the end of 2014.  Professional is the better buy. 

    OEM System Builder packs are not for end users to buy and install.  They are for people who are in the business of building computers that they sell to others.  Please read the product details tab for Home Premium OEM on NewEgg. 


    "Use of this OEM System Builder Channel software is subject to the terms of the Microsoft OEM System Builder License. This software is intended for pre-installation on a new personal computer for resale." 

    The System Builder license states in pertinent part,

    2. Authorized Distribution and Acceptance. To distribute the Software or Hardware in this Pack, you must be a System Builder and accept this license. 'System Builder' means an original equipment manufacturer, an assembler, a refurbisher, or a software pre-installer that sells the Customer System(s) to a third party.

    Also, OEM licenses are not transferrable to a new computer and are invalid if you change the current motherboard.

  • I'm aware of the license restrictions.  I've built systems before, and, as I stated above, this was a scratch-rebuilt machine (all except video card and hard drives are new).  If you want to be stickler, I'll just have it sent to the guy who built the system for me, who'll then send it on to me.

    And support doesn't bother me.  I'll probably be ready for Win8 by the end of 2014, and it really comes down to price.  I just can't afford anything more than Home Premium now.
