Windows 7 Home Premium shows not genuine after new hard disk installed and restore from back up RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had to replace a hard disk and restore from backup. I cannot run Windows updates or install Security Essentials. (I am told to start Windows Update service 0 it is started and I have restarted but the install program says it is stopped). I get Windows not genuine message. I have looked at Computer Properties but there is no button to change or rekey Product Key although the key does show. It's an OEM key.

    I have run the Diagnostic Tool and copied the results. However I cannot open the files created to display the results to you (a dat file and a evtx file.

    Thanks

  • Ignore the saved files - they are not relevant.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

  • Hi Noel.  Thanks very much for your response.

    I have copied the report at the end.

    The version of Windows on the label inside the battery cover says Windows 7 Home Premium OA.

    Just in case it is relevant I should tell you that when I found the product key in the battery compartment it was different from the one shown in Start/Computer/Properties. The one in the battery compartment is NOT an OEM - it has the format of five sets of five alphanumerics.

    So I thought I would try changing the Product Key. However the Change Product Key link is missing - I know where it should be as there is a picture at

    http://www.sizzledcore.com/2009/10/26/how-to-change-windows-7-product-key/

    I also found a place through a microsoft.com site to activate windows but this just says "Activation was successful" so I cannot find a way of changing the key, if that is what I should do. The pictures suggest I should be able to get to a screen that says "Type your product key", but I can't.

    I am not sure where this OEM key came from - one site says that Dell use this key but it's not actually the one you need for activating Windows! So maybe there was some confusion when I restored the backed up image to the new hard disk (I did this with Ghost 15 and had to use both the Ghost Custom Recovery Disk and the Windows 7 64 bit Recovery disk to get the restored system running).

    Here is the report - I deleted the detail of the Product Key after the 10* in case this was what you meant should not disclosed - the last 15 alphanumerics are NOT the same as on my battery compartment label.

    I also deleted detail against Product ID - this is an OEM number and is the same as on the Start/Computer/Properties form.

  • The common cause for these mismatches is a faulty Intel Rapid Storage Tech driver

    Download and install the latest version from....

     http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=21730

    then run another MGADiag report and post the results

    as for the other question:

    Computers, which are built by large manufactures that come with Windows Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:

     OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes from the Factory. This key is geared to work with the special instructions found only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Windows 7 looks at the motherboard and sees the special instructions and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not need to Activate your computer after you brought it home)

     

     COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or bottom,[ or inside the battery compartment]) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should only be used in limited situations (such as if the OEM SLP key stops self-activating for whatever reason). The key must be activated by Phone. (Note: All manufacturers that use the OEM SLP system are required by contract to include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker, that has a COA SLP key, on the computer)

    I can now run Security Essentials, Windows Updates, and the routine that verifies Genuine Windows.
