Not Genuine

I used Minitool Partition Wizard to resize my partitions.

C: with windows 7 64-bit is working just fine after the process.
but when I try to start my second OS T: with win7 32-bit it will say
"Windows 7
Build 7601
This copy of Windows is not genuine"

Should I reinstall windows?
Can I still use my product key?

Assuming you used a legit key from in the beginning, just re-enter it and activate again. Sometimes, significant system changes trip the activation.

If you are unable to boot, you may be looking at recovering your data and then reinstalling Windows. That means you probably did something you shouldn't have with the partitioning tool.

If it had been booting, you would enter it in the system properties screen.

Can you boot in safe mode at all?

This sounds like a non-geniune lockout caused by a drive letter change in registry. I happens sometimes during reimaging or repartitioning.

Use FREE Rescue Kit Express | PARAGON Software Group

Boot the Paragon CD - select Normal Mode , then Boot Corrector.

Correct drive letters in the system registry.



Release the incorrect letter first, if necesssary.

If this fails you might be able to insert your Product Key from the System Recovery Options Command Line: SLMgr Commands and Options

If this fails you'll need to boot the Win7 installer to Clean Reinstall.

Hi.

If i am not wrong,

A hardware partition...is considered to be a separate computer.

It would violate the terms of the license agreement, I'm afraid.

You may install one copy of this software on one computer.

OP are you using a separate key for this or the same as for the other Win7?

There have been several dozen blue screen lockouts that I've seen here falsely labeled Not Genuine after reimaging or repartitioning.

We once tried Control Alt Delete using Task Manager>New Task to open CMD to reinstall Key, but it doesn't take without Admin elevation. You can try it however. SLMgr Commands and Options

Then SIW2 showed us how to use Paragon Rescue to change a slipped partition letter in Registry which has worked repeatedly for this.
