  • what I can tell you is that you have a volume license installed which would not be valid for your use as a consumer.

  • ...additionally, the motherboard is a retail one, but the system is showing the presence of a SLIC table from an Acer machine. This can only happen if an Activation Exploit is present, which automatically invalidates any installation.

    The installation is definitely counterfeit, and you should report the vendor to the authorities, and to Microsoft.

  • Is it a legit version of Windows 7 Prof though? And the reason i have a volume license is because he runs a company; hence me having it. =)

  • Only members of the owning company are entitled to use the company Key - any other use is outside the terms of the license.

    All MAK Licenses are upgrades - which means that the machine requires a base license of at least a Windows XP, Vista, or 7 Pro - usually an OEM license accompanied by a COA sticker.

    If you didn't get either a COA sticker and OEM disk with the machine, or a retail box, DVD's and Proof of license , then the install is counterfeit.

  • Can you elaborate as to what a "SLIC table" table is? As he did mention he uses a SLIC loader to automaticly install everything. So he doesnt' have to keep installing OS's and such over and over again.

    -Thanks for all the answers; i really appreciate it.

  • SLIC

    Some BIOSes contain a "SLIC" (software licensing description table), a digital signature placed inside the BIOS by the manufacturer, for example Dell. This SLIC is inserted in the ACPI table and contains no active code. Computer manufacturers that distribute OEM versions of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft application software can use the SLIC to authenticate licensing to the OEM Windows Installation disk and/or system recovery disc containing Windows software. Systems having a SLIC can be preactivated with an OEM product key, and they verify an XML formatted OEM certificate against the SLIC in the BIOS as a means of self-activating (see System Locked Preinstallation). If a user performs a fresh install of Windows, they will need to have possession of both the OEM key and the digital certificate for their SLIC in order to bypass activation; in practice this is extremely unlikely and hence the only real way this can be achieved is if the user performs a restore using a pre-customised image provided by the OEM. Cracks for non-genuine Windows distributions usually edit the SLIC or emulate it in order to bypass Windows activation.

    you are dealing with a disreputable vendor. the loader is an illegal activation hack that pirates use to fake legitimate windows and will be detected sooner or later. it is also used to cheat unsuspecting buyers out of their money. (you for example)

    As he did mention he uses a SLIC loader to automaticly install everything. So he doesnt' have to keep installing OS's and such over and overagain.

    he is either stupid or a thief

  • Thank you for the detailed information.... I will confront him about it and get the money back for the OS. He did a fine job with all the hardware etc; however i did intentionally ask him for a "legal version of Windows 7 Proffesional" and since he failed that part of the deal.....

    How would i go about reporting this to Microsoft and the local authorities? (Kinda new to this type of thing) =P

    -Again thank you all; for helping me out on this one!

    Sunday, March 31, 2013 11:16 PM
  • For Microsoft....

    fill in the Counterfeit report here...

    http://www.microsoft.com/nl-nl/howtotell/default.aspx

    For your local authorities, it depends whether the vendor is a business or not. If they are, then whatever local 'Better Business Bureau' equivalent you have should be able to assist

    If not, then start with your local police and see what they have to say

  • Thank you both for all the information i really appreciate it <3..

    I'm going to buy myself a legit version of Windows 7 Professional, but do i need to wipe my C: drive completely? And if i do; will it fix my BIOS as well?

  • You can leave your BIOS alone.

    Your best option would be a reformat/reinstall using the genuine media and Key - but you could simply swap in the new Key, which should then bypass the self-activation routines. If necessary, a repair install would ensure this.

    Please be careful where you purchase your new license. Avoid eBay, Craig's List and the like - the majority of software on such sites is counterfeit!

  • Ola!

    So i'm getting my legit version of Windows 7 Professional delivered tomorrow... *supa happy* I'll try and just swap the key to see if that will do it. I did manage to find the actual loader which is named "Windows 7 Loader Extreme Edition V3(beta)". I removed it from my computer. It was sitting in C:\\Windows\SETUP\SCRIPTS\Loader.exe - Anti-Malwarebytes found it after a full scan.

    Would i be safe to just swap the key? And would that not get me in trouble somewhere down the line?

    -Thank you all again! <3

  • It should be fine - that loader's not one I've heard of (but then I don't go looking!).

    .... found a somewhat later version of it, and it appears to be a pretty sophisticated beast.

    If in doubt, wipe and reload.

  • Anythig i should worrie about? Since i would really hate to reinstall everything.. (-_-)

    PS- The guy is telling me that i could've contracted the loader from a webpage (malware/virus) lulz..

  • When it's in an obviously-designed folder?

    check the dates on the folders/files involved, if you can. Shame you're not in the US, really - you could have threatened him with a visit from the FBI :)

  • Well it's ok i got my money back; that i paid for the OS. However i'm still wondering if i should be worried about the loader?

    Since i would really hate to reinstall everything; but if it needs to happen.. I'll guess i'll just have to bite the bullet on this one.. =(

    -Thanks again for the help Noel!

    Good luck with it - I know all too well the pain of reinstalls.
