Preferred Solution: windows7 pro activation

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: windows7 pro activation

Welcome
Follow this tutorial
Dont give the key number when asked.
Make the install
Test it
Install programs etc and make sure it works.

Then activate by phone
Activate Windows 7 by Phone
The problem is that the upgrade key does not recognize the fact that you had an underlying OS that quaifies for an upgrade.
If you have problem with the phone activation, you will be elevated to a rep. Just explain the facts and you will be validiated.

A product key number can only be activated on 3 computers at the same time if it is one that came with a retail Family Pack copy of Windows 7, you may have to do a phone activation if you have activated it often in a short period.

After a windows7 installation is there an entry in the event viewer or some other log somewhere that tells you when windws7 was activated?

The computer I am working on was getting the error that windows was not genuine. I was able to activate windows7 with the proper prod key. I am curious if the windows7 was activated previously or if there was another problem. The computer also came into my office with a bad stick of ram. I am not sure if the bad memory caused windows to "deactivate" or if the windows7 was never activated.

In other cases I've seen issues when imaging or when infected with malware you get error messages that say your hardware config changed and you need to reactivate windows....

A:activation error oxC004E003 for windows7 ultimate64bit

If your COA sticker is only for Windows Home Premium, than unless you purchased an Upgrade, that's all it's licensed for - and any other Windows install is counterfeit.

You need to reformat and reinstall using legitimate media - either the manufacturer's Recovery media, or a retail license for Windows 7 Ultimate (or the recovery media + an Upgrade Key)

I have an HP Compaq dx2000mt desktop that has windows7 32bit enterprise installed on it. I tried to install windows7 home 32bit to replace the enterprise OS. As I was installing it stated the old OS would be marked, XXX.old and it went forward, then came to a point where there were booting errors. and it stopped installing. Now I am left with a half install, and a full OS the boot section now in its own drive named disk 0 system reserved.
I partioned the C drive and allocated 20gb and tried to install there. I received the same errors seems that my boot.ini is stuck in the system reserved and I cant figure out how to incorporate disk 0 over to disk C, so that my boot is in the same disk drive.
I have really messed this one up. I have installed an operating system before and never had so much trouble.
Any advice would be helpful.
And please if you have an answer, something for me to do, it needs to be A.B.C.'d out step by step as Im not an expert. But I guess I already proved that...

My new computer arrived today with Windows7 64 installed. (happydance)
My old computer has Windows7 32 installed.

Before I start attacking both computers, thought I better ask beforehand or the b/f will 'kill' me

Can I remove the hard drive from the old computer, install it as a 2nd drive in the new computer and be able to access all the data (documents, photos, messages saved in outlook and my favourites etc) on it from the new Windows7 64bit primary drive?

(I wasn't sure which sub-forum to ask this question in, hope in here is OK.)

thanks,

A:Windows7 64 reading windows7 32 drive?

Hi Jaibird,

A hard disk is not 32-bit or 64-bit and does not depend upon the installed OS.

Yes, in some parts and no in others.
You can access files/folders from the partition Hard Disk (Documents, Photos, Favourites).. But you cannot get the messages saved in outlook.

Be advised that the (Documents, Photos, Favourites) will NOT merge into your current Windows 7 64-Bit.

Hi there
I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around).

However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter I got the "Hardware has changed - please activate windows. OK it activated fine -- however seems strange to me that a MOBO change didn't call for any activation (Disks, memory, DVD device etc were canaballized from the old machine) but a simple switch from Wifi to a LAN did. !!! The internal logic of the activation process seems totally illogical and bizarre. (Running W7 x-64 ULTIMATE). !!!

Cheers

I have vista 32-bit and can do an inplace upgrade to windows7 32-bit.
Can I also do a dual boot and run windows7 64-bit on a second hdd? On the same machine!
Will I have to purchase a second key or would the same key work for both
32-bit and 64-bit?
If I install the 32-bit win7 can I upgrade to 64-bit using the same key or
do I have to purchase a second key to do This?

A:windows7-32bit & windows7 64-bit

To the best of current thinking says the same key will work both 32 & 64 bit. you can dual boot both and should be able to use the same key.

Hi Gents,

Hope someone can help me here. I've been using a retail version of Win7 Home premium 64 for about 2 years now with no issues.

During that time I've reinstalled the product possibly 6 or 8 times. Excessive I know but when things start to go wrong I like to start fresh again. Anyway from memory the last 2 times I have had to use phone activation.

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my laptop and killed the HDD. Put in a new one and reinstalled Win. I've just tried to activate with no luck. I went to phone activation and being lazy I typed in my old code I had saved from last time.

Now I can't activate and when I try and open the phone activation box I get a pop up from the toolbar saying the copy isn't genuine and nothing more.

Is there a way to resolve this or have I pissed off the activation so much that I actually have to shell out for a new copy?

Thanks in advance and I'm located in Thailand if that makes a difference.

I have seen that 6 people vote on my poll for yes and 1 for no, that are not so much votes, I am sure that are more people they can tell me their experiences.

Sorry, can't include information beyond what I'm typing as can't get past Windows logo screen before OS goes into page
that states "Windows can't start" and requests either Repair or log on normally. Can't do either. Tried Repair, states
can't repair and identifies problem as Windows Defender Offline. This is the last program I ran prior to having problems.
OS suggests recovery but OS won't do that either; suggests removing new hardware (none) or recently installed software
(only Windows Defender Offline is new) and can't get at Control panel to remove it.
Running Dell Laptop Studio 1537 with Win7 Pro legal copy. Would like to get around this without losing my data, if possible,
but have Win7 Pro if must reinstall. Any suggestions?

A:Windows7 won't log on

Can you boot into Safe Mode? Press F8 after the bios quickly? See if you can get into that mode?

I am asking on behalf of a friend who sent me this question today -- thought maybe someone here might have AOL and experienced the same thing and might know of a fix -- here's the situation:

It seems that when someone having windows 7 sends an email to a person using XP, there can sometimes be no scrollbar in the email. Have you ever heard of that or know the fix? It makes the email impossible to read unless the receiver forwards it to them selves

I do not have AOL and do not have this problem, but maybe an AOL user could respond to this.

I'd appreciate any input please.

Thanks

A:Windows7 and AOL

This may not be what your friend is talking about, but I have a cousin that uses AOL and I get a lot of email from him like that. Right below the address bar will be a paperclip and some words that is the subject of the email with .eml as an extension. If she double clicks that she will then see the message.

This is true for what I get from my cousin and all he does is forward junk. A normal email may not be that way from AOL.

Guys I really need help. I've lost my OS due to virus and format and have had nothing but issues trying to get 7 pro. Sometimes it installs some times it does not. Sometimes it installs and updates screw up and blue blank black screen (from scratch) Sometimes it installs and has several windows update errors. Sometimes it installs and forgets boot mgr. I've tried to repair 3 times still nothing then i get kernal error. I'm lost uterly lost. I'm so used to xp reinstalls i have never seen a OS that doesn't install properly the first time let alone the 14th time. My mother board has UEFI ability and i have tried to install in both GPT and mbr format
GPT worked for a bit but crashed again with similar errors (when i started). Display driver fail and other update fails such as i can never seem to back up or image my os at clean install. is there some sort of trick other then clean, select partition type, create part primary align=4096, active, format quick fs = ntfs (on hdd caviar black 500g 6g sata) or clean, convert to gpt. yadda yadda yadda. It doesnt matter what i do this OS some how messes up the installation from the get go which hinders everything i do thereafter.

Can someone point me in the right direction. I'm assuiming my spec info has been posted... ?

MAny thanks in advance formum (sorry im just really pissed after the 14th try here)

A:Windows7 Pro 64 bit

Have you downloaded the motherboard drivers from Asus, then installed them immediately after installing Windows?

Since you had a virus, how did you prepare the drive before installing Windows?

I wonder if someone could help me.I have XP pro for my os now.Awhile back I created a small partition and installed Vista also.I didn't care for it so I uninstalled Vista and merged the partition back.I hope I am explaining this right.Would I install Windows7 the same way.I am not to sharp on the computer so as easy as posible would be appreciated.I googled my question but don't understand to well.Also,if this works out well with your help,where would I get a copy of Windows7.Thanx,Tony.

A:Windows7

Hey PlumberYes you should should be able to use the same technique to install Windows7. Just make sure you run CHKDSK, then Defrag the drive. Finally make sure the partition is large enough for windows7.Best of LuckRegards~powerjuce

LoL I feel so stupid right now. I work for my local government as their IT person. We just purchased 8 dells to replace older workstations. I am setting up the accounts on the new computers and adding the computers on our domain. Here is where I fracked up. Windows walks me through creating an account on the local machine. Easy enough. Then I go and add the local machine to the domain. There active directory has all the usernames and passwords stored and logging on the domain is good. THen I go back to User accounts and delete the original account that windows helped me setup just to free up space. Well dummy me also took the computer off our domain and back to the default workgroup and then restarted the machine for it to take effect. So now I am back to the login screen and I cannot login with any name! I need help lol. I can't find a solution for this at all!!!!!!!!

A:Cant get into Windows7

Sounds like quite a fix huh?

Try this....boot the computer with the Windows 7 DVD->Click "Repair Your Computer"->Choose the second radio box and click continue->Choose the command prompt option (last option)->Try the following commands....


Code:
net user <desired user name> <desired password> /add
EX. net user SFT password /add


Code:
net localgroup administrators <desiredusername> /add
EX. net localgroup administrators SFT /add

If that doesn't work we will try something else!

It doesn't come on CD. It comes on DVD. You only need to buy a license and use it on your current setup.
