Is this a new clean install of Windows 7?

Without the license key code no one can help you. If this is a store bought PC the key is somewhere on the computer case.

Hi,

On your computer, is Windows 7 already installed, or are you trying to install it for the first time?

Regards,
Golden

Hello laustin, welcome to Seven Forums!


If you don't have a Windows 7 activation number there's nothing we can do to help, have a look through this tutorial linked below for other ideas.

So if it has been used before, where was it installed?

Did Windows 7 come preinstalled on the PC? Is there a COA sticker with Product Key on it attached to the machine? It should list your licensed version. If so then Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.


If this is retail Windows 7 and you lost the key, then you needed to audit the Winy Product Key from the old installation it was installed upon before overwriting it with a new install. Do you have a backup image of your old install which was activated with the Product Key?

If not then you'll have to buy a new key because the Product Key is required to reinstall.
