Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and analysts won't try it.

I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Installation is genuine and has been validated through Microsoft Genuine Validation. Under "System" it says "Windows is Activated", shows the Product ID, and shows the "Genuine Microsoft Software" logo. Why do you say it is not?

Because the activation is the kind that is used with preinstalled Windows, like with laptops.

They cannot be used on retail boards in a genuine way, that Windows is activated means nothing because the activation is not genuine.

So Microsoft validates installations that are not genuine? Why would they do that? Makes no sense to me.
My hard drive was failing and I cloned the bad one to a new one and it was validated again.

Microsoft eventually validates every activation. Those that haven't been activated genuinely will after some time give the message that Windows isn't activated, because the exploit is broken.

FYI, my current definition of validating is the process of checking. Thus only checking if a system is genuine or not, this does not include the result.
