Upgrading Hardware made a "Not Genuine" error? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded my hard drive to an SSD drive and reinstalled Win7. But the SSD worked in really wonky way, so I went back to my HDD.

    About a month or two later, I upgraded my CPU from a 4 Core to an 8 Core.

    Soon after, Win7 says its not genuine. My software reseller (365 Professionals.com) is renovating their website (with no way to contact) and now I'm stuck!

    I purchased two licenses, but now both computers report they are not genuine.

    It was always the same motherboard!?!? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MSDN account.

    Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so. 

    You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)


    Please read the following posts.... .................................








    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.


    see also this post....





    Also - have a look at this video....





    You may be able to get a complimentary copy of the OS from Microsoft - fill in the Counterfeit report here...

  • Thank you Mr. Paton. Obviously not the answer I was hoping for :(

    I now have two Win7 Pros to replace... thankfully the economy is going very strong and my insurance premiums are not tripling at all, blah!
    Tuesday, October 29, 2013 5:48 PM
  • LOL!

    :( on a more serious note- you should attempt to report the vendor to MS and to any intermediaries involved in the sale - PayPal, Credit Card companies, eBay, etc...

    Even if it doesn't benefit you financially, it may

    1) make you feel better

    3) mean that they can scam less people in the future

    ... and who knows, a proper Piracy report to MS may get you a complimentary genuine copy!

  • Great advice. The saddest part is their website looked so very legit.
    "MS Approved Partner" Badges
    "MS Certified Reseller" Badges

    Then, as soon it hits the fan, their website is "under construction" and no response to emails.

    Thanks again for your help Sir Paton.

  • It looks like you are not the only one.  Here are 22 reports on the company, most of which reference invalid software keys and no response from the vendor.  This has been going on at least since January of 2013, I would hope that IF Microsoft knew about them, something would have been done.

    Please do not read this sentence. Please ignore the previous sentence.
