Windows 7: Windows 7 Expiration Around the Corner for Build 7100

"Rearm" means an extension of the trial period, accomplished by typing slmgr.vbs -rearm into the start menu search box. This will extend your trial period by 30 days. You have one of those left.

Then you go into limited mode, where the system will force you to upgrade. At that point you can either purchase an upgrade version and do an upgrade install or purchase a full version and do a clean install (recommended).

Either way, back up all your data or move it to a separate hard disk if you have not already done so (external disks preferred) before 05 July 2010.

You should be able to upgrade to Home Premium, but a clean install is always preferred.

This guy probably upgraded the OS to Win7 and then sold the machine, which is why you are stuck with a trial version.

You should complain to EBay if at all possible.

In short words : You bought your PC with RC version ,wich someone ''masked'' as RTM ,not trial. That's it.
You can't upgrade from RC to full version ,you can only make clean install. Of course ,first thing what you have to do is buy your Windows 7. It doesn't matter wich version it is.

It shows it is genuine and activated and valid

Every way windows has to check and see if my windows is valid, it passes. Would this be true if this os is set to expire in June. Do these trial W7's show as validated and genuine?

Yes!! Backup all your data from system partiton ,get Windows 7 full version and make a clean install. It's the only thing you can do.

Because of RC version still in use ,there is no real WGA check like in XP & Vista yet. Every Windows 7 RC is genuine ,because you can activate as many versions as you want with one RC key. And yours is RC ,even if it says it is 7600 build. It's cracked!!

Take a look at picture of mine ,genuine version when I typed slmgr.vbs -dlv .
As you can see ,there is no expiration date!!

Why would a retail license have 3 rearms remaining. Why owuld you need any rearms?

Because it is the default setting for any version of windows 7... I use 7 Professional from my TechNet subscription and it shows 3 rearms still available...nothing to worry about....

So I have 7000 (beta) running on my Lenovo T60P and it's PERFECT. I have 7100 (rc) running on my desktop and it has issues... I am so dreading the upcoming expiration of 7000 (beta). I wish I could give MSFT $$$ right now as a pre-buy and not lose my flawless 7000 (beta) experience.
