Hi,

There isn't something quite right here - notice your date precedes the release date of Windows 7 - this isn't possible. Also, notice the obvious spelling errors in red above.

I've requested NoelDP to have a look at this a bit more as he has far more experience than me at this, but at the moment I suspect this installation counterfeit.

Regards,
Golden

There's no problem with the report - Retail Keys are independent of manufacture date and SLIC table.


It appears to me to be a standard Retail Key - it's certainly not a known MSDN one (but I don't know any Ultimate N MSDN CID's), and it's not an OEM one of any kind.

I have to admit to being a little surprised - play.com is almost as bad as eBay for piracy problems.

How did the package arrive?? - please see the following, just in case.........

The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

Thanks Noel. I'm surprised you don't see the date as an issue though?

Nah - it's only ever an issue with OEM_SLP Keys (and by inference OEM_COA_SLP Keys) - Retail, and OEM_NSLP keys don't even look at the SLIC table.
The BIOS date canonly be an indicator at best - you can have two identical machines from the same manufacturer, both may have a BIOS date of 11/11/11 - one has may have a Windows 7 SLIC table, while the other doesn't. The difference is that the second one shipped with Linux installed, rather than Windows.
Conversely, you can have two identical (apparently) machines with SLIC 2.1 tables - with a BIOS date of 11/01/10 the other with a date of 08/08/09 - the second could be genuine, while the first could be counterfeit (BIOS updated to one released after Windows 7 launched, but SLIC table simulated by a loader.

Fun, ain't it - and people wonder why I can't produced a Flow-diagram of how to read an MGADiag report!?!

doesn't make a blind bit of difference for a Retail key

...in fact, thinking about it, that information is ignored by ALL installations - because it's easily customer moddable.
There are any number of programs available on the internet to change DMI info - which is why it's flagged often as being unreliable. I've seen one or two reports where the data has been customised, but I can't remember offhand whether the Key was OEM or Retail (or what sort of OEM)

I find it very unusual and very suspicious.

I say "counterfeit".
