Genuine product key not accepted for validation
I bought a genuine copy of Windows 7 64 bit, I know this for sure, 100%. It was bought from Amazon (actual amazon, not a 3rd party using amazon) and has all the correct holography.
I have been using it for a while on a different pc, however, after some hardware issues, replaced various bits of hardware and after MANY reinstalls later, I manage to get windows working properly, I finally have a pc that doesn't have any hardware faults, although now windows tells me:
The product key you entered can't be used to activate windows.
What is the meaning of this? I bought a genuine copy of windows so that this doesn't happen.
Can someone please assist.
