This copy of windows is not genuine after I put a older emachine's HDD into a new emachine tower. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, I had a emachine's tower that went bad, so I took it to the local computer guy, and he put my HDD into a emachine's tower as a extra storage drive and to preserve my files so I wouldn't loose my files. with a Intel motherboard, So the tower was running on a version of XP that he had installed on a HDD he put into it plus my HDD with all my files.

    Well my grandpa got a new emachines computer and he said I could have it, So I took my HDD out of the tower the local computer guy put in the other tower and put it into my grandpa's tower he gave me. My grandpa's tower was running windows 7, But he kept the HDD because he wanted to try to save his files from it onto his new computer using a external HDD reader. So I put in my HDD that was running windows vista and it worked fine for about 2 weeks,

    Until yesterday when I booted it up, it says my windows version needs Activated, activate now or later, I just exit out of it each time to get into my computer then my backgrounds gone, and in the right hand bottom corner it says Windows Vista (TM), Build 6002, This copy of windows is not genuine. And it should be a genuine copy cause I never put any other windows version on this HDD, just took it out of my first computer then into another PC running XP but just as a storage device, then into this computer. I read one other post about someone who had this problem with windows 7, and ran that MGADiag.exe, So I ran it and this is what I got.

  • You cannot move OEM Licenses between machines.

    For what version and edition of Windows is this machine licensed, according to the COA Sticker on the case??

    If it's for Windows Vista Home Premium, then simply change the Key to the one on the COA sticker using the link at the bottom of the System properties page.

    If it's anything else, then you'll have teo reformat and reinstall with the licensed OS - preferably using the manufacturer's Recovery media.

  • I'm not trying to move license's between machines, I'm putting a different hard drive in, and not the original one that came with it. Doesn't the Hard drive carry the windows OS and licensing? The machine originally runs windows 7, I put int a Harddrive that has windows vista home premium on it. If this is all ok, and I just need to re input the the product key. Where do I find the product key? Where is the system properties page? Is it in control panel under system? The sticker on the side of the emachine says Windows 7 Hoe Premium, I put in a HD that has windows vista on it.

  • No - the license belongs to the motherboard, not the hard drive.

  • Ahh alright thanks Noel, didn't know that. so it looks like I'll have to buy a new product key. Cause I'm not going to windows 7.

  • Why not? - it really is a far better OS than Vista.

    I had no problems  working with the change, and the basic interface is pretty much the same.

    I found that once I started using it for the majority of the time I preferred it to Vista - less hassle from UAC to start with :)

    Now Windows 8 is going to take some getting used to - and I hate the consequent kiddy-cube look of all 'optimized' websites.
