  • Hello TheGeekGirl,

      Windows 7 (and Vista) allow the user to insall without having to enter a Product Key during installation. This is called a Keyless Install.  When a Keyless Install occures, Windows uses it's own default Keyless Install product key instead.  The Keyless Install key acts as a Trial key and allows the user to use Windows for 30 days.  To continue using Windows longer, the user will need to enter a Valid Product Key.

      Your Windows is currently using the Keyless Install key for Windows 7 Home Premium.

      Now, without a description of the issue from you, I will have to assume this is the common problem that I have seen many time before. 

      I assume that your copy of Windows 7 Home Premium was an Upgrade version.  There is a spacific way an Upgrade must be installed. Upgrade versions must have the install started from within the older Windows that is being upgraded on.

      Starting an install by booting from the install disk will result in a 'Clean' or 'Full' install. An Upgrade Product Key, will not work in a Clean/Full install. 

      So, I believe your issue occured something like this: 

    You had a copy of Vista (or XP) installed on your computer. 
    You got an Upgrade version of Windows 7. 
    You intalled that copy of Windows 7 by booting to the Windows 7 Install disk. 
    This caused the start of a Clean install. 
    When the Windows installer asked you to enter the Product Key, you entered the Upgrade key and the installer rejected it.
    You continued the install anyways but since no Product Key (that would work with a Clean install) was entered, Windows used it's own Keyless Install key. 
    Now, after 30 days of using Windows 7, the trial period has expired and Windows displays a Non-Genuine message
    At some point you most likely attempted to Activate, but you always received an error. (because a Keyless Install key can not be activated) 

      The resolution to this problem is to reinstall the older Windows that you want to Upgrade upon.  Boot into that Windows and then insert the Windows 7 Upgrad install disk into the DVD Rom.  Start the Windows 7 install and follow the directions.   When asked, enter the Upgrade Product key that came with the Windows 7.  Finish the install and then Activate your Windows 7.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
