Installing Windows 7 Failed Activation

Q: Installing Windows 7 Failed Activation

Guys I need help.
My desktop pc (HP Touchsmart 300) broke down and the technician told me to change the disk. He changed the hard drive and installed again Win7 Home Premium. A fiew days ago, I did a clean Windows install, by downloading the .iso file file from the web (Microsoft's webpage I think). I burned it to a disk and I started the installation. When i asked for a Serial Number, I wrote the key, who was behind the pc. The setup continued, but when I entered the Windows desktop for first time, a message poped up saying "This version of windows is not genique"-something like that. I re-entered the serial but again nothing! What is wrong? Did the hard drive change affected my windows activation?

Thanks,
Dennis

Preferred Solution: Installing Windows 7 Failed 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.)

Hello Dennis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you get the ISO file from here below? Microsoft: Windows 7 Direct Download Links
For now, you might see if you may be able to activate by phone instead.

Hi guys,
I have a problem with the windows 10 activation;
3 days ago I purchased this laptop, turned it on and initialized it, windows was active;
yesterday I dot the latest windows updates, including that one that looks like a brand new SO installation with multiple reboots and when it finally ended (after more than 2 hours) my SO was not activated anymore.
When I open "settings" and click on "activate windows" I can see the error 0x8007007b; clicking the Activate button does nothing.
I found some guides googling around but before I start copy/pasting the product key they say I can retrieve using
powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ?select * from SoftwareLicensingService?).OA3xOriginalProductKey"
I'd like to know if there's a simplier. maybe more specific for this product, solution.
 
Some extra infos about my pc and license:
1: when I first booted it got windows 10 home already installed and was activated
2: I got a sticker under the laptop with the windows logo but there is no key
3: no key in the few paper manual in the package either
4: laptop is a g50 80 with i3-5005u

I have an Inspiron 3542 laptop that I just upgraded to Windows 10. The update completed but now the device is saying Windows 10 needs to be activated. The error message reads: "Activation failed because this device doesn't have a valid digital entitlement or product key. Error code: 0x803f7001". This is a Windows 7 Pro device purchased from Dell in 2014.  I tried calling the help line but they bumped me over to a fee for service help line because I am out of warranty.  If they sold me a device with an invalid key shouldn't that be on them to correct regardless? 
Is there a simple fix to this.  It was activated and running fine before this upgrade attempt.  Should I just revert it to 7 Pro and leave it alone?

Hello,I've been using my T450s for 3 years. All this time It's been running on a Windows 10 Pro. Today, suddenly I got a notification that the "Windows is not activated" with the error code: 0xC004C003. According to the Windows 10 troubleshoot, my laptop has a Windows 10 Home digital licence! I did my best to fix the problem but wasn't successful. What should I do now?Thanks in advance.

I would try calling Microsoft volume license activation.That may NOT be the most correct number to call, but if not hopefully they can re-direct you if needed. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/existing-customer/activation-centers Perhaps you will get  better answer, if not, give this a go! If my post answers your question, please mark it as an?Accepted Solution?!If my post helps you, please click the star to give it a "Kudo"!In a galaxy far far away, a long time ago I worked for IBM for many years.Currently I do not work for, nor do I speak for either Lenovo or IBM.

Hi,
 I bought a Dell Inspiron 5559 with pre-installed wiondows 10 home edition. After finish windows setup, an error messaje came up ¨Activation of windows 10 home failed because "the product key used in this pc did not work with this edition of windows'". I contact dell support and they suggested me to re-install win10 which i did but the problem is still there. Any clue Please.

Thanks in advance..

A:Activation of windows 10 home failed

Activation key is embedded in the computer and you do not have access to it. Did you mistakenly enter a key? That is not necessary. The Activation will automatically scan the computer and read your embedded key. When reinstalling win 10 you skip the first question about a product key by choosing I don't have a key. Then activate after the reinstallation is finished.

I have T450 came with Windows 7 pro downgraded from Window 10 pro about 4 years before, and I cannot use either Win 10 or Win 7 with this machine anymore after formatting HDD. It was being used with factory installed Win 7pro for a while, then due to the virus related issue, I low level formatted the HDD this year. Since then I was trying to use the facory recovery USB key that came from Lenovo, but the recovery key from Lenovo was actually Win 10 pro instead of Win 7 pro; which was fine if I could activate the Win 10 licese properly.  After Win10 factory recovery was done with the USB key, the activation window says that "The product key used on this PC didn't work with this edition of Windows. You might need to get in touch with the store or company you bought Windows from, enter a different product key, or go to the Store to buy genuine Windows. Error code: 0xC004C060". I contacted Microsoft, and they traced the license key in the BIOS of the laptop, then told me that "The product key in your machine exceeded the maximum quantity of PC for activation. Please contact Lenovo to get proper license key." I contacted Lenovo support, but I could not get any help from the support except telling me that my laptop is now out of warranty. What should I do here? Should I purchase a new Win 10 licese again? Please help.

I just built a news system and did a clean install of 8.1 Pro 64-bit. Activated it without problems and did a clone to file using Paragon. Copied the clone to multiple drives to use on the same computer, to keep gaming on a separate disk. Everything worked perfectly until this morning when windows says its not activated and key is in use on another computer. The key has been used, but I swapped out the motherboard, cpu and ram and did a fresh install. The activation work without a hitch, but now activation has failed. Its only been running a few days, but I've been able to swap drives without a hitch. Is it the fact that I use multiple disks on the same computer or is it the fact that I have previosly used this key on different hardware? The key is not installed on any other computer.

A:Windows 8.1 Activation failed on cloned drives

I believe that a new motherboard is seen as a different computer by Windows. If the Registration key has been used on another motherboard, it will say the activation is in use on another computer when the motherboard is changed.

If you have an OEM version of Windows (pre-installed by the PC manufacturer), a new motherboard is considered a new computer and you can't transfer the Registration key.

A retail version of Windows can be transferred, that's one reason it costs more. If you have a retail version of Windows, you have to call Microsoft to transfer the activation to the new motherboard.

Windows 8.1 is asking to be reactivated, when product key and or activate online is issued, error message appears telling me the code is not valid. tech support has helped out in many ways, but no ways have fixed the issue. many cmd commands have been attempted
such as 
elevator cmd promp~ attempted and failed
rearm cmd prompt~ attempted and failed
among multiple others.

i bought windows 8.1 pre installed on my pc from best buy, never had problems until affter windows 10 free upgrade, which i did not participate in getting. afterwards, i have been constantly asked to activate my windows 8.1, but with no luck does it allow
or accept my product key, despite it being a valid  volume key according to the microsoft support team.

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

I've been given a computer in the following state:
- Hard drive was reformatted with a clean install of Windows 7 Pro (same as shipped) which is now showing as not activated.
- I was told that an OEM disc was used to reinstall Windows but it looks like a retail version might have been used instead along with what appears to be a generic key.
- I do not have recovery media and I don't see a COA label on this model.
The computer all original parts and it's my understanding that the activation key is BIOS based. Is there way to activate Windows on the spot without tracking down recovery media, backing everything up, and then reinstalling?
I apologize if I've missed any critical information. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

I think my Windows Ultimate 64-bit is cursed... It nearly seems as tho EVERY time I install something a bit 'chunky' (.. or like today. a 'repair' of previously installed software... such as my effort today to 'repair' Roxio 2012, for instance..), I get the accursed notice that "..Windows has detected a hardware change and must be re-activated.."
REALLY?!..
I've had the same computer hardware for over three years (Intel i5-2500K on an MSI P67A-GD55 mobo holding 16GB of DDR3-SDRAM and two 1TB Seagate HDDs) with this (for the most part) same unchanged hardware ... virtually unchanged software (INCLUDING this Roxio 2012 software I mentioned - uh-except for the on-going hundreds of "Windows Updates" ...). And to the best of my knowledge, NO OTHER CHANGES ...
And yet.. it seems as tho WAY too often I have to 're-activate' Windows - time after time after time.. (like more than FIVE times in the past two years.. and I even had to make a telephone call to achieve activation after changing the disk controller to AHCI when I installed my 256 GB Sandisk SSD Extreme 'boot disk'... which, for this, I most assuredly understood WAS no doubt a "significant" hardware alteration so 'reactivation' might have been necessary..) and yet, in too many cases I seem to ALWAYS have to 'reactivate' after seemingly 'minor' software changes (such as this morning's effort to 'repair' Roxio 2012).
Simply put.. this makes absolutely NO sense to me that what WAS installed ... Read more

A:Windows needs re-activation after installing SOFTWARE ..?! REALLY..?!

It is unusual. The only thing you mention that raises red flags is Roxio which is considered pernicious bloatware that can't be gotten rid of fast enough when it comes preinstalled. Not sure why you'd install that on a custom build since all of its features are found in Windows Media Center.

So I have Windows 10 Pro on my main PC, I got it via the free upgrade as I was previously on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Now I have purchased a SSD so need to re-install Windows 10 how would I go about doing this? or can I not as the free upgrade window has closed?

A:Re-installing Windows 10, Licence/Activation question?

Since you got it for free, your PC is registered with Microsoft under the "Digital Entitlement". All you have to do is install your system but skip the license key. At the end it will be automatically activated..

I am trying to install Windows 10 Pro on my T450s that has Windows 8.1 Home on it. I have a product key for a retail copy of Windows 8 I have purchased. My plan was to do a clean install using the Media Creation Tool and the key. I have successfully used Win 7 product keys to do clean installs of Windows 10 Pro. But I'm not even up to the point of entering anything. When I try to boot the image created by Microsoft's own tool, I get the following error: "Secure Boot: Image Failed to verify with ACCESS DENIED Press any key to continue." I don't want to mess around with any BIOS settings until I get the go ahead from you all that I can and should doso. I have tried using the Media Creation Tool twice on different machines with the same result. So what to do? Microsoft doesn't want me installing from an image they themselves created?

First of all hello forum . I've been reading posts on this forum for about a year, ever since I started with the W7 beta on my old PC. I just purchased a "new" used PC from an ad on Craigslist, and everything has been fine for the past two months. Yesterday, I got the dreaded "This copy of Windows is not genuine" popups, and after attempted activation it seems that is indeed true. Some searching around on the internet has shown that people are using a "loader" program (whatever that is) to get around the activation, so i thought i would do a scan of my files to see if something like that was installed on my computer. Found it, complete with the classic "hacker" type upper and lowercase file name, something like "WiNDoWs7LoAdeR". After finding this file I can only assume that this copy of windows was activated illegally. I attempted to call the person I purchased the machine from and their number is now disconnected. Just my luck.

Now here is my problem. I would like to purchase a licence key and get this computer on the up and up, but W7 Ultimate is installed on it and there is no way I can afford a licence for this version. However, I am i Graphic Design student and I qualify for a great discount on W7 Professional (but only the upgrade version it seems). I am not sure of the differences between the two versions, and I am sure I am not using Ultimate to its full potential whatever that may be.

My question is this:

I bought Windows 8 Pro Upgrade to try it on one of my computers before being committed to it. I didn't connect to the internet. I first ran:
slmgr.vbs -upk

This option uninstalls the product key of the current Windows edition. After a restart, the system will be in an Unlicensed state unless a new product key is installed.

I then:

Disable Auto Activation feature in Windows 8
To do so in Windows 8, open regedit and navigate to the following key:
?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion \SoftwareProtectionPlatform\Activation
In the right pane of the registry editor, you will find REG_DWORD value ?Manual?. Right-click on it and select Modify. In the Value Data window which appears, change the DWORD value to 1.

The default is 0 which means auto-activation is enabled. Changing the value to 1 will disable auto-activation.

I was then able to go onto the Internet and get the 5 updates. But the next day when I turned the PC on it activated automatically. How did it even know my product key? I did run "slmgr.vbs -upk" and did see it worked. Now I'm committed to have windows 8 on this computer.

A:Tried To Stop Automatic Activation But Failed

post your licensingdiag report and I'll see if I can see anything there - note that Windows 8 is designed to have no grace period, so -upk may not work the same way....

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt window (in Start, type 'Command' - a Command Prompt icon will appear, right-click on it, and select Run as Administrator)
At the Prompt, type

Licensingdiag.exe -report %userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\repfiles.cab

(note the spaces!)
two files will be put on your desktop -
open the 'report.txt' file in Notepad, and copy/paste the results to your response - you can ignore the repfiles.cab file for the moment, as it's only backup data

Are you experiencing any problems with the ATI card? If not, then I'd suggest ignoring the error.

If you don't want to ignore it, download a fresh copy of the ATI drivers (NOT the Catalyst Control Center - just the drivers). FWIW - there have been issues with the Catalyst Control Center on some Win7 installations.
Then uninstall all the ATI stuff on your system (using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program)
Then install the display drivers and see if that fixes the error
