Genuine advantage fail several weeks after hard-drive transplant RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a catastrophic mobo fail in a newish Lenovo laptop, I moved the hard-drive into an older (but similar) Lenovo laptop that had a dead hard-drive (also Win 7). For several weeks it has functioned OK (except for always getting a "cannot close background program" error, then having some hassle on restarting - but I was going to sort this out over the holiday). As of the last couple of days I am getting the "not a genuine windows error", build 7601. I appreciate that this may related to the disk's new chassis / mobo, but it's definitely genuine (bought from dabs.com). Error below. I run Windows Security Essentials and scan often. Elsewhere on this forum it has been recommended to run scannow, which I have done with no errors.

  • The problem isn't whether that the older computer ran Windows 7 or not.  The problem is that the copy on the harddrive is restricted to the computer it shipped with.  That is enforced by the SLIC table in the BIOS on the mobo.  The one on the older machine does not have the right codes that will allow the copy of Windows 7 on the hard drive to remain activated.  OEM SLP copies of Windows 7 are only valid on the computer on which they ship from the factory.  Move the hard drive and you are changing motherboards.  Change mobos and you need a retail copy of Windows.

    SLIC LENOVO TP-68

    The SLIC table in this machine if for Vista, not for Win 7 – the machine is too old to support an OEM_SLP license for Win7.
    OEM Licenses for Windows are only valid on the machine on which they were supplied.
    If you wish to continue using Win7 on this machine you will have to purchase at least an Upgrade pack (NOT Anytime Upgrade) to whichever edition of Win7 you require.
    Note that if the COA sticker on this machine is illegible, you may need a Full Retail license, since you may have to activate by phone and persuade the operator to issue an override code for the activation, as an upgrade can only be done from a validated system. (there are ways around this, but...)

  • Thanks Noel. I could have sworn the older machine was 7, but clearly my memory is faulty. I'll look into the upgrade, or I have an unused xp licence I might go down to, or (since it's only the kids' homework machine) I might put ubuntu onto it. Thanks again, really very much appreciated.

    Check the COA sticker on the machine – it should tell you what the original OS was (you could always order a set of recovery disks from Lenovo for it).
