Cannot activate a copy of Windows bought in another country RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I bought a copy of Windows 7 Home Basic (OEM version) in Mainland China. I built the computer in Australia. When I tried activating the product, I was told that this product could only be activated in Mainland China alone. I would like to know what the options are, apart from buying another copy of Windows in Australia. Thank you in advance.

  • The chances are that it's a GeoBlocked Key - which even if you were to get it activated by using the China activation lines, would be flagged as non-genuine the first time you attempted to validate it.

    As such, I'm afraid your only option is to purchase a copy locally. If you require Chinese and English Windows 7 on the same machine, you should purchase Ultimate, and use the MUI Language packs. (If you already have Windows 7 installed and activated, you can  use Anytime Upgrade to get to Ultimate).
