Windows 7: This copy of windows is not genuine build 7601 - cure needed

17 Jun 2012   #11

Win 7

I have got the same problem happening on a genuine Windows 7 and started a thread on this yesterday.

My Bios is reading vista - hense why Windows 7 now being rejected as not genuine (up-grade disc came from ACER)

ACER is demanding 139 to fix it!

Microsoft 80 for another Windows 7 disc!

My valid Vista discs won't work due to Acer muck up on Windows 7 install - so cannot go back to Vista.

I am in a right rut - with both companies profiting to 'fix' what should never have needed to be 'fixed'.

All was paid at purchase in good faith - yet I have a laptop that is totally useless unless I pay more to them!

I wonder how many of us are having these problems - it is such bad form by these companies.

I am feeling quite upset and robbed.

Upgrade disks for Windows 7 are NOT ones which rely on a OEM_SLP Key - they are properly OEM System Builder disks and Keys.
You should have received the proper Key with the original disk,
