Windows 7 Ultimate x64 will not activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently bought a Windows 7 Ultimate license on ebay. Then I noticed amazon sells OEM copies for much more than what I paid. The product page on ebay even says the license is generated at MSDN (!), but I did not know what this meant until I did some research. As expected, I could not activate my Windows 7 installation with the license I bought.

    I get the following message:

    The product key you have entered will not work with this edition of Windows 7.

    You must either run Windows 7 Setup or enter a Windows 7 Ultimate product key.

    Below is the MGADIAG validation info. I would like to know if there is a way to buy a valid Windows 7 license because there are a few "stores" that sell OEM licenses -- without the DVD -- here in my country, and I don't want to be fooled again.

  • The installed Product Key is the Default Key - and can NEVER be activated.

    It is not legally possible to sell on eBay Windows Keys without accompanying software - therefore your 'license' cannot be valid, and you should claim a refund.

  • I understand. I will ask for a refund. Should I stay away from OEM licenses with a DVD included too? Because I found a few in some local stores (not on ebay). They also have OA licenses without accompanying software too, but I believe these will be just like those licenses sold on ebay.

    And before I saw your response, the seller sent me another product key, which worked. And based on the "Blocked Product Keys" topic, this installation has a PID very close tho those that have already been blocked. 

    But I just need to know if it's safe to buy an OEM product with accompanying software.

    Thank you.

  • 1) The Key you have already received is almost certainly an MSDN one - and will go the same way as the first.

    2) The source of any Windows license must be genuine - as your current one is not.  You should attempt to purchase from unimpeachable sources auch as Newegg, BestBuy (in the US) or local big well-known stores with a reputation to uphold.

    Without knowing exactly your country its very difficult to advise on sources for genuine media According to your report, you would appear to be Chile/Argentina/Brazil - but that's only going by timezone, and I could be pointing you in the wrong direction without specifics.

  • Yes, I know the license must be genuine... This is what I am trying to buy. 

    I just need to know if an OEM software, with a case, a disc, and a product key included, may be genuine or if I will certainly end up with another non-genuine key. 

    I live in Brazil, by the way. I couldn't find "unimpeachable sources" around here.

  • Any large store would be acceptable - although I can understand that it's difficult to find a reliable source in some countries.

    From a quick trawl, the following two look OK to me...



    One easy way to tell, is that OEM software comes with TWO software agreements - if you don't see a OEM installer software agreement on the outside of the pack, then it's counterfeit (the OEM is supposed to read the terms as opening the pack is deemed acceptance of them).

    The end user agreement is actually in software.

  • Ok, thanks a lot! I'll be sure to look for an installer software agreement on the outside of the pack. But will I be able to use the product key of an OEM pack in Portuguese to validate an installation in English? These links are for Portuguese versions, and I want my system to be in English.

  • Windows Licenses are language-independent - it should be fine.
