Windows 7: Win 7 Prof not genuine and cannot enter genuine OEM product key

ToddB:

Since I now know it was RemoveWAT... Here is how to fix:

Boot from your Windows 7 DVD and select "Repair your computer" and then select Command prompt.

From there use these commands:

Code:
 
bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
c:
cd boot
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
Although for a novice a clean install may be easier!

When OP has said earlier that it activated and ran fine with coa key code, really??? Again if you want to support your statements, with actual facts, then by all means back em up!

Ive used in past with no issues, it does what the commands I gave above do. Just easier for a novice than typing at the CLI!

ToddB, if you doubt the legitimacy of this app I suggest you look at the developers site here:

YES!
You can acquire a Key from anywhere - it *may* work for a while, but unless it is truly genuine and unabused it *will* fail eventually.
One of the tests of Guinuine-ness, is whether the COA Key in the report matches the COA Key on the sticker on teh machine - if it doesn't, it raises very 0grave doubts about the Key in use, since the ONLY truly valid Key for an OEM_COA Key is that on the COA sticker.

....and to answer the direct question about the 0x80070003 errors, yes, it is PERFECTLY normal, since the WAT update is the first thing that install theese files (and the validation chekc does so as well) - and the error message it 'file not found'
please learn a little beofre you jump on a horse.

NOel-

Once again, the OP had activated and was "cleaning" offline when his warning occurred. It had to be caused not by a MS activation fail (how so if offline), but the "cleaner"... wouldnt you agree with that one single theory???
