I would like confirmation of legality for an ebay purchased Win 7 Ultimate DVD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I puchased windows 7 Ultimate off ebay, it was supposed to be unopened, retail, still shrinkwrapped...

     

    when it arrived, it was not shrinkwrapped and the perforation on the COA sticker appeared to have already been broken - eg case opened

     

    It did have a Product Key sticker inside on a piece of card, the COA appaears genuine - eg the mictosoft strip embedded in the sticker appears to be inside the paper not printed on top, the disk appear to have the holograms as per the 'how to tell' information available from microsoft.

     

    I would just like some confirmation that the product is indeed a legal retail copy and that I have not brought a dodgy license with an original disk...

  • You would appear to have been one of the few lucky ones on  eBay!

    as an aditional check, install the WAT Update either directly from the KB article KB971033, or by going to the Validation site and validating Windows there.

  • I have checked the key and it does show as Valid and Genuine.

     

    However, I do have a concern.

      I can't be sure, but the information I see for the key suggests that it may have been from a Digital purchase, not a Physical purchase. This isn't a bad thing in itself, the key is still good.

      What I am concerned about is if this valid key is from a digital purchase, then were did the physical disk and packaging come from. If it is a counterfeit disk, then someone may have embedded the Windows install software with some sort of malware.

      Please ensure the image/hologram on the front of the disk is not a sticker.  The image should be embedded within the disk, not stuck on top of it.

      If the image/hologram is not a sticker, then it is most likely good and should be safe to use.

     

    Note; there are a lot of "If's" and "May Be's" in my concern and it is very likely that the disk is good.  I just wanted to ensure you take a closer look at it, just to be sure.

    Thank you,

  • Noel, firstly, thankyou for your reply,

     

    I downloaded the Validation tool from the page your link took me to, installed it and according to the following page, it is a genuine version oif windows.

     

    Darin, thankyou for your reply,

    I took your advice and checked both the 32 and 64 bit disks...

    They do not appear to be stick on labels.

    They do appear to be genuine, I say this because according to the COA sticker, the package was made in Puerto Rico and on each disk on the underside in the centre, the hologram in one position says Puerto Rico and to the side and going under the 'Puerto Rico' text it says genuine Made By Microsoft.

    On the top side of the diskyou have the word windows 7 embedded underneath the windows logo hologram and on the bar part is has Microsoft with the word GENUINE underneath it.

    The only 'raised' bit on the disks appears to be the black part of the label after the hologram edging.

    I do find it intruiging that you tell me it is a digital license though.

     

    Anyway, Thankyou both for confirming that this at least was a genuine copy and the license is also genuine, I will not leave feedback for the seller accordingly :)
