I tried to install SP1 last Thursday but I hit a problem right away I forgot what error code I got something to do with missing windows files so I followed the link to fix the error and downloaded (Windows6.1-KB947821-v10-x64.msu) 300mb file I ran this program then tried to install SP1 again. All seem to be going well it then asked me to put my copy of windows into the drive so I did then after about 15-20 mins the PC rebooted and the screen was blank/black but i could still hear the HDD was working it was like this for about 10 minutes then I got a message in the bottom right corner of the screen saying windows 7, build 7600, this copy of windows is not a genuine. YES IT IS!.
Could this be the cause of my problem.
About 5 months ago I had to replace the motherboard due to a failed component I didn't replace it with the same make I upgraded for a better board. When I turned the PC back on it asked for the windows 7 disc so in went the disc after a shot time (updating motherboard drivers
) I had to activate windows again ok no problem I've still got a few more times that the disc can be used.
