Please start a NEW thread of your own, and include an MGADiag report

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Secoind thoughts....
Build 7077 is a BETA version of SP1
You need to uninstall it and install the release version

Whatever version you want to purchase. The message means you are using a beta version, and not the final product. Unless you have another license, you'll need to go purchase one.

win 7 and xp
 
 

Activation lasts until you reinstall it.

Not true I have reinstalled this win 7 many times.

. I installed a new win 7 in 2008 (the first year of win 7?) fresh from Newegg. There was no change in bios or motherboard. Maybe the problem was that I was trying to change boot drives to a newer hd. For a while I had two boots on the same drive. Microsoft does not have a way of removing the boot that I didn't want to use so it was Microsoft's fault that I could not remove the boot and windows information. I could not spend a lot of time backing up data and then deleting the drive. That is a waste of time and energy. So I found a way of deleting the windows folder and the boot information to make the drive non bootable just using Ubuntu disk.

So really like I said before the only thing I had to tell them when I did reactivate was how many computers the win 7 was being used on. Just ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope Microsoft gets it act together and not think it is god.

From now on I will preach the following to others who have Win 7: After your first activation and if you don't change bios or motherboard then you really don't have to reactivate it AGAIN!!! You might get black backgrounds and stupid notices that you win 7 is not valid or the real thing. IGNORE THOSE THING AND GO ON COMPUTING!!!!
MICROSOFT IS JUST TRYING TO STEAL YOUR MONEY.
BY THE WAY I THINK WIN 8 WILL JUST BE A FAILURE. IT CAN'T COMPETE WITH APPLE IPAD OR IPHONE AND CERTAINLY NOT ANDROID!!

Since Windows 7 wasn't released until November of 2009 you'd have had a problem buying it anywhere before then.

Post an MGADiag report.

A little googling shows that the OP has actually published his FULL Key on the internet - I would not be surprised to hear that it has been blocked for abuse.
