Yeah, and as a poor typist, I'm well aware of this! Mine seemed to get cris-LOST though! But lucky I had it in clipboard from the night before still!

Sure, Jack, of course I can: How to Do a Clean Install with an Upgrade Windows 7 Version, and I used Opion Four (4).

I'm confused by your question, so it's likely that you don't fully understand or remember the steps I went through (understandably, as there's a LOT of thoughts/text in this thread!) OR ELSE I might be just not clearly looking at it from the right perspective (I'm quite tired and the world seems to be doing all it can do to crash down on me lately!)

I'll assume the former is the only one that I can sanely answer presently. I basically decided that preforming a Clean Install on a new drive of the same version of Windows 7 was my best bet, (I think I payed about: $120/3 = $40 + tax per use of each Family Pack license (had to pay in advance of course!) I'll working on the drivers/updates/application reinstalls, etc when get a chance. The Product Key I retrieved from the ORIGINAL WINDOWS install, which I though I preformed (almost positive) was a unactivatable bulk type that is activated prior to installation I suppose normally (not OEM). But the point is that when I saw that and tried a few things, then I started typing the key into "Bing.com" and three letters in the dropdown-box displayed like 5-10 options that all included "my" old Product Key! So, whatever some hack might work, but it seemed unlikely that I could do anything legally. So I decided to push the edges a little bit and used the Family Pack "UPGRADE" for the otherwise exact same version I had, and on a fresh HDD. The only trick part to it is how to get an "upgrade" to install without a previous version of windows on the dive I'm installing to. It's unusable and will be formatted, but it doesn't know that! So I used option FOUR in the above tutorial. Option one may have worked, but I like that windows DID see I had some Windows install before I preformed the second part, an "Upgrade" install (or In-place Upgrade Install), which writes over the Clean install I first made without entera Product Key yet. Then I entered the Product key after the second install displaces the first, and I activated using the single Product key that comes with Family Packs and it activated, no questions like I would normally get having me call MS to get an activation code for the FamPak! Then I connected to the net and tried to validate the activation and it said it couldn't do so, suggested trying tool XYZ. I chose not to, and called MS and they fixed it from their-end. Now windows is registered under genuine activation, where it can check up on my H/W S/Ns and compare them to my ProdKey/ID. Doe that clarify in a brief way what I did? Ask any questions you like!

Fine by me...Problem is that I'm going to connect to the webpage before preforming a single update or working on any security measures yet! I can remove several USB flash drives I have plugged into this one system that will not release them, and I can't afford data loss! So transfer is not a viable option, and I didn't get any real network working yet either so I'll have to D/L the exe file from that computer...completely naked o the web, then upload it the same way! So, while I do owe you as I do many people in here, more than just 'one' for helping me, I'm going to go ahead and cash-in on one of my debts to you! K? J/K!

The results to the LOG will be added to this post in a minute...then anyone else that reads this, I have to go see someone important at the moment, but I'll reply to whatever you want and I'm backlogged on PMs and so forth, so I will not forget - i promise!

This Family Pack thing is a learning experience for me.
Thank you for posting the log.

I did find this from way back when.

Windows 7 Family Pack - Deactivate one installation

And this.

Microsoft kills $150 Windows 7 Family Pack deal | Computerworld

I noticed from your log their is no (7601) which indicates SP-1 has not been installed.

I also notice your Family Pack is Retail. Which I didn't know they came that way. Your System Spec. indicate Upgrade which now makes sense. To the best of my knowledge all Upgrades are indicated as Retail.

Reading many things on line I noticed that many people had to call Microsoft to get activation problems worked out. Even from the beginning when released. To many to list.

With my limited knowledge I see nothing wrong with your log except you need SP-1. Which should come through Windows 7 Updates.
It will probably take forever.
Even when the install comes with SP-1 their will be over 200 updates.
You have more pain and head aches coming from Updates. Thanks to Microsoft.

Again thanks for posting the log.

Thanks!

You're welcome! The family packs started selling soon after the release of Win7. They didn't last very long though! I saw an opportunity for investment and jumped on it - I bought out every local store for miles, Mainly Best Buy and Circuit City (at the time). The same install DVD pair for home premium was something like $189, but the THREE license Family Pack was ~$119 or so (divided by three is $40/install! Nice profit margin for windows which was very tight on their pricing scheme for wholesale vs retail! Of course, now Windows 10 is suddenly free and pushed on everyone even! I can't believe people think MS just decided to throw away $200 per person x many millions of copies usually, and there would be no strings attached! LOL!

Well long story short, I ran out of the 50-60 family packs (w/ 3 lics ea.) within a year I think!


Thank you for the URLs, I browsed through the linked pages but I'll return when I have more mental focus and actual time to read them more in-depth!

Wholly friction split! I did NOT expect nor notice that! I did see SP-1 in the updates, but I was so convinced that these had SP-1 installed, I left it sitting there, thinking it must be retarded or something and never looked at systeminfo's detail or anything! Wow, thank you for noticing that!

Quote:

Yep! Right off the shelf at retail price, too!

Seems right, since family packs were only briefly sold, and they were sold exclusively in the "retail" form, as such - and I believe they were all "upgrades", not sure about that one.... However, if you consider the purpose of an "upgrade", for a "civilian" to install windows on a system to replace an old system, then what else could it be? OEM? Nope! That's the logic I draw from it anyway, you might be more informed than I on these types of matters!

Thanks for replying and posting some feedback!

Have a great day! And a spooky night!

Answer to your previous question:

it took from 6pm - midnight to merely find the next batch of updates: 214 Important (and 8 Optional) NOT to download them, that's just to see the list of what is "ready to D/L!"

That sound like what many members are going through. You have more joy to look forward to before you are done.

I do recommend when you get done, make a clone/backup of the entire drive to a external drive.
