  •  Did i need to have already installed the other OS (in my case win xp) before installing windows 7 upgrade? during installation i believe i entered the product key for XP but i could be wrong.


    Yes, if this is a Windows 7 upgrade license, the upgrade installation must be run from within the OS being upgraded.

    So you would have to do a clean installation of XP, then bring it up to SP3 level, then run the Windows 7 upgrade.

  • Hello Mightypylon,

    If the Windows you want to move is a retail license, you are allowed to move it from the dead computer to a different computer.  If it's an upgrade retail then the computer that's getting the license has to have a qualifying OS already installed.  There is no deactivation procedure---just install on the new computer and activate.  If there is an issue, you will have to activate telephonically (just make that choice in the Activation Wizard).

    If the Windows you want to move is an OEM license, no can do, OEM licenses are permanently tied to the original computer and when it dies, the license dies.

    If there's a Certificate of Authenticity affixed to the computer for this Windows 7 license, that means it's an OEM license and it dies with the dead computer.

    (Note:  I have ignored your mgadiag report because that could not have come from a dead computer.)

  • no it was the live computer that i have windows 7 currently installed on and is telling me it is "not genuine" my only theory is that the lap top is still one of me 3 activations that came with the windows 7 upgrade package that i did buy. it was working fine for about a month before it decided that it was not genuine so i am unsure of wether my problem is the dead computer now or a driver update that i am unaware occured. Did i need to have already installed the other OS (in my case win xp) before installing windows 7 upgrade? during installation i believe i entered the product key for XP but i could be wrong.
