Windows 7 Blocked Key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a Windows 7 Ultimate key off Ebay in January, it came with a link to download the windows 7.iso as well. After reading the Blocked keys thread, I'm fairly certain now that it's an msdn key. I am not able to register my product key, and am told it has been blocked. Yet when I go to the Microsoft genuine web page, it informs me that my product is genuine, which confuses me. So if someone could shed light on that, it would be helpful. Also, what course of action should I look at taking. Below is my diagnostic.

    Your Key is an MSDN Key (as I said in my first post!)
    You bought it as a key - this is not legal.
    The seller was in breach of the terms of the MSDN license  which states that resale of keys without the accompanying sales of the subscription as a whole is forbidden. The only legal place that can supply Keys on their own is MS. ALL other Keys must be accompanied by COA stickers or labels.
    He has probably sold the same key a hundred or more times.
     
    You need to get a legal License, and a Legal Key for your system. You can follow the Notification link to buy a legal Key from MS - it will arrive by email, and the disks will arrive a few days later.
    You can also go to a reputable store either online or down the high street, and buy a FULL RETAIL ULTIMATE pack there, and use the key to replace the one you already have.
    You could also revert your OS back to the original one by reformat/reinstall (or if you're lucky by uninstalling the Upgrade if you used the disk/license that way)
    or you can buy whatever flavour of Windows you like suitable for a reformat/install clean scenario.
     
    Sorry for the mixup!!

  • I also agree.

      To avoid further customer confusion, when Validating a non-activated Windows, that is using a Blocked product key, the Validation result should be something other then the current "Assumed Genuine" result. 

      I have escalated your feedback. 

      I can't guarantee the change will happen (or happen quickly) but the feedback is a compelling argument in favor of clearer Validation results for, this type of scenario.

    Yep - it's an MSDN Key for sure. The reason it's showing as 'Valid' is that you haven't Activated it, and by definition, an Unactivated install is a Valid install - because it can't actually be Validated - try and install MSE and see what happens.

  • I tried to install MSE as you said, and had the same results as the website. It said my product was genuine and successfully validated.

    Odd - I've never been able to install MSE on an unactivated machine... but that may be my memory playing tricks.
    Have you tried activating it? what EXACT error messages do you get if you try?

    To answer your question, "Yet when I go to the Microsoft genuine web page, it informs me that my product is genuine, which confuses me.":  As Noel noted, Windows 7 installations that are in the initial Grace Period (the 30 day maximum time period after installation but before activation), as yours is, will report as Validated when you go to www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on the Validate Windows button.

    I wish Microsoft would change that.

    You and me both! - and allowing the installation and use of validation-required software on an unactivated machine seems to me to be counter-productive.
