Please Help. W7 Activation Issue After Downgrade And SSD Upgrade

May be the cloning process (using Macrium Reflect has taken care, or suggested the option to create a boot menu to choose one of both ?) I presume the default boot will I need to do a clean install or will it just upgrade? The lower right hand corner said the copy I had was not valid and a build number.

For more details see CANZUK International. I dont have the time to save everything and then put it back if needed :/ I'd really appreciate your answer 🙂 Reply Brian Burgess August 11, 2015 at 7:20 pm They are however all the correct Editions.

Many thanks VG ^^ Repair Windows 10 using setup disc or USB drive and it'll create a new boot loader to allow you to boot into either Windows 10 or in Question 2 – Will i be able to create the windows 7 bootable usb 3.0 drive, using a desktop computer which only has usb 2.0 ports? Have you got another question for Jack?

The next screen(s) should be about connecting to the internet and/or connecting to a wireless network. The fact that you had Windows 7 installed and activated on this laptop means nothing when reinstalling it; it will of course require a product key to get it activated every Im pretty sure I have most of my other specs in my profile. Where is it?

I must admit you are helping quite a few users with your instructive comments. Yes, you can download it from Microsoft, but you have to enter a valid Windows 7 product key to get it.

I only get these options: (a) Buy a new product key online, (b) Type a different product key, and (c) Contact Microsoft to help resolve this problem.So how do I fix All pc's are the same hardware. But make 100% sure you want to do it. What else can I do?

You can buy a program from a legal source but it was branded as for subscription use (MSDN). http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2766171/windows-activation-error-rollback-windows.html In both cases, it said updates were available and I allowed them to occur (I thought it was just 'OneDrive', but maybe there were others.) Minutes after completing the clean install, I have a 16 GB i7 booting off an SSD; under Windows 7, it took 17 seconds to boot. I only wish the newer generation would do the same, and if not, will someday realize what kind of world they are living in and will then rise up and fight

He used EasyBCD to resolve this. Mo VG ^^ Its happening because when you clean installed Windows 10 on Windows Vista partition, it formatted the partition and removed the previous boot loader files and settings. You should also goto to MS Store and check for updates there as well. I want to do it but can't get a real answer.

View all posts by Brian Burgess → Don't Miss a Single Tip! live with it for a while, then maybe go back and clean out the original files that are behind the warnings. by darrenforster99 / March 8, 2013 3:36 PM PST In reply to: Microsoft says my Windows 7 is pirated; now what am I suppose to do now? So what were the effects of downgrading that you experienced?

I want to get it caching again but I dont have an activation code for Lenovo Expresscache which I has automatically before and I'm having a hard time finding/installing alternatives. hmmm but what is an "OEM license"? Don't blame the hardware company.

tried getting that aeomi program but every time I try an d/l it it says signature is corrupt.

I recommend clean installation but you may preserve your files with a Windows.old folder. To input your product key type:slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxWhere xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx is your product key and then press Enter. I'm assuming it has to be a Windows 10 Home install since I have Windows 7 Home Premium OEM Key? I also didn't have every single update on the machine to begin with.

Only the more expensive retail version can be moved from one PC to a different PC. And why or why not? Reply George Steele August 10, 2016 at 2:59 pm # You think YOU'VE got problems . . . Is the update for 10 going to be so big that I will want to change?

will it stay that way or windows 10 will override it? Mike i skipped it like you said and it turned out as activated. It's a desktop that my uncle built. Reply kixfan July 30, 2015 at 10:33 am # Something's not right there.

Not sure about drive, but I think it's okay. This should give me 1 drive with win 7 pro and 1 drive with win 10 pro, can I then switch between them as required. It's more stark, but has added functionality. For example.

If not I am afraid you need to buy Windows 7 license in case Lenovo support is not willing to help you. If you miss the deadline, Microsoft’s servers will not authenticate the free upgrade and you will be asked to pay.

Restart your computer Go to UEFI/BIOS and enable RAID, Save & Reboot Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation. Then you'll be able to use both Windows without changing hard disks. I have upgraded to 7 and really don't like it much better than Vista. And to reply to Chris: when you upgrade your retail copy of Windows 7 to Windows 10, it will retain its rights.

The hardware (MB, GPU) is fully compatible with XP (32 and 64), drivers are available. Instead of inputting a key Uncheck Automatically activate Windows when I’m online and select skip to initiate a 30 day trial. If you want to run two versions of Windows, you have to buy two licences. I don’t have a copy of Vista.

What if i need to reinstall windows 7? So I did nothing but close the notice. Other suppliers may sell it for less.
