Does that make a difference?
If you're certain it was SP1, then you should go ahead with that.

If not, can you check your COA sticker again and see if it's saying something like X15-65805 or X17-59186 (or anything similar you can find) and post it?

There is also another bold number 71Y3514.

X16-96076 is confirmed to be Win7 Pro SP1 64-bit:
Reinstaling Windows 7 Pro OA - no proper copy available (X16-96076)

Hello,
I had the same issue, and first i tried the N version, which didnt activate (Professional N x64 English - X17-59337.iso)
Today i downloaded without-N version, which activated ok. I have the same number as you (X16-96076) on my sticker and this DVD worked: X17-24281
So you may want to download X17-24281 from DigitalRiver torrents (quoted link doesn't work anymore) for best chances.

Thanks. I am downloading just that. About the bootable iso, do I need a 4 gb pen drive? Everyone keeps talking about how the pen drive must be at least 4 gb. Mine says it is 4 gb but when I connect it to my PC, it shows 3.73/3.74 GB space available.

You can just burn the ISO to a DVD because it's already bootable. That's how I usually do my Windows installs.
Other members will be able to help you better with the bootable flashdrive install if that's your preferred method.

You download the iso with Service Pack 1, if not you`ll have to install SP1 through windows update, now why would you want to do that ???

The pen drive you have should work fine, use Wintobootic, it works great.

But you should also create a dvd.

Didn't know that SP1 was a free upgrade for the regular version. Yeah, it'd be super frustrating, especially when your internet speed is that low, to not get the SP1.

Just in case?


Update:

I used the WiNToBootic software and did manage to burn the ISO onto the flash drive. The only problem is that the software says that it took it 0 time to do the job. That isn't true! It took it about 10 mins.

So were you able to successfully install a genuine Win7?

No. My Laptop has 4 USB ports, 2 USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and one USB/eSata. It only detects the pen drive when connected to the USB/eSata drive. I tried that for booting. However, it only stayed at a blank black screen for a really long time. Tried twice. Didn't work.

As we speak, I am burning that ISO onto a DVD. As soon as that is done, I will attempt again and report back.

UPDATE:

Windows said that my Product Key is invalid and gave me the option to either buy new license or try phone activation. I tried phone activation. It was really straight forward and my windows is now activated.

YAY

I am now downloading the drivers and everything.


Thank you very much to all the members here who helped me out. Especially Kathy and AddRam. Let me mark this thread solved.
