Windows 7 no longer genuine after reconfiguring dual boot. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using a dual boot, dual HDD box with Win7 / XP for many months, defaulting to Win 7 Ulttimate. I use EasyBCD for the dual boot. I went into the bios to dump the opening logo screen and  loaded all the defaults by accident. One of those "not thinking it through" moments.  It booted into XP and I had lost all my dual boot settings. So I reconfigured them. Booted fine into Win 7 but I now get the message "Windows Computer Build 7600, This copy of Windows is not genuine". Very frustrating. Here is my diag. report:

    As this is a pirated version of Win 7 OEM for an Acer computer and it was never shipped with your computer (bios too old for Win 7 OEM) you need to purchase a full Win 7 Ultimate and change the product key to make it legal.  That is your only option to make legal with Win 7 Ultimate you have installed.

    If you purchased this and thought it was a legal purchase then you need to contact the seller for an immediate full refund of purchase price.

  • Even though he didn't fully explained the issue in any detail, LVTravel is correct.

     The information that tells us this is a non-genuine copy of Windows 7 is that 1) your Windows is using a Windows 7 OEM SLP key and 2) (as LVTravel has highlighted) the Bios in your PC is dated back to 2007 which is well before Windows 7 was released.

    Why is that an issue? To explain that, I first have to explain how an OEM SLP  key works.


     OEM SLP: This key ONLY comes pre-installed in a PC built by a Large Manufacturer. This key is geared to work with the OEM Bios Flag that is only found on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows is installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Windows looks at the motherboard and sees the proper OEM Bios Flag (for that Manufacturer and that version of Windows) and Self-Activates.


       Your Windows is using an OEM SLP key, but cannot see the OEM Bios Flag in the computer’s Bios and, as such, is unable to Self-Activate. This is because the Bios was created before Windows 7 was released so couldn't have a Bios Flag for a version of Windows that hadn't even been created yet. This suggests that this Windows 7 did not originally come pre-installed in that PC and if that is the case, then that Windows 7 is not licensed to be used on that PC because (as I mentioned above) an OEM SLP key is Only used in Windows that originally come pre-installed in a PC from a Large Manufacturer and OEM software is not licensed to be transferable to any other PCs.

    Thank you,

  • Thank you. These are very informative. While I don't doubt what you are saying I am VERY curious as to how it ever worked in the first place. I got this new machine (custom...grrrr) back in late summer and has been fine until this week. Strange.

    Thank you. These are very informative. While I don't doubt what you are saying I am VERY curious as to how it ever worked in the first place. I got this new machine (custom...grrrr) back in late summer and has been fine until this week. Strange.

     
    Here's one of my spiels about the time-lag
     
    For MSDN Keys:-
     
    MS can only act once a key hits a threshold (and they won't tell an outsider what that threshold is, understandably). They then have to put it through internal systems to ensure that all relevant parties are informed, just in case it's an oversight - then it enters the queue for the next update to the system. I have no idea how often the WAT checking system is updated, but I would suspect that it's no more than weekly because of admin and timing issues. The internal MS processes could therefore take easily a couple of weeks.
    It therefore depends on how close to the end of a vendors sales list you are, and how quickly he's selling them.
    The cannier ones will sell just enough to stay under the threshold for each product (MSDN subs include a huge number of products), until they've maximised the profits, then try and flood the market before disappearing into the sunset, laden with your cash. This could take anything up to a year or more.
     
    For products sold using a loader:-
    The loader gets around online activation by fooling the computer into thinking that the OS is installed onto the correct machine, by modifying certain files. Because of a number of factors, it's impossible to stop this, so MS came up with the WAT update - which has the ability to scan the relevant files, and detect the use of a loader tool. If the user fully updates the machine, including recommended updates and optional updates, then the WAT update is installed and starts work, and within 3 days, a loader-installed machine will get a notification. However, the WAT update is a voluntary one, at least at the first update run, and can be uninstalled, or refused
    The other time the WAT update is installed, is when you validate Windows for some reason - it is part of the validation process, rather than the activation process. this time, it does the scan immediately, and again this will show as non-genuine if a Loader is present.
    If a user never needs/wants to validate, then they need never install the WAT update, and may never see a non-genuine notification.

  •  The "For products sold using a loader" part of Noel's post is most likely the right explanation for this particular case.
