I really wish I didn't have to do a complete reinstall as I have a whole of stuff that would take forever to reinstall...

Thank you so much for your time.

Unfortunately the key you entered was blocked or blacklisted. I believe this can occur if installing Windows 7 on too many devices using the same key.

Although it has also been shown that hardware changes may have also caused the hash against the key to fail.

Have you tried using this key on more than 1 machine, have you made hardware changes?

Also if this is truly a legitimate key you should be able to activate this way: Activate Windows 7 by Phone
which will likely be the only way.

The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MSDN account.
Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so.
You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

Please read the following posts.... .................................


The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

Also - have a look at this video....

Thanks for your reply as you actually were right: this had to be handled by phone. The very nice people at Microsoft did solve it and give me another key.


Thank you also for your answer as it makes perfect sense.

@Microsoft: If you want to go after the |!"/$%?&*|!"/$%?&*|!"/$%?&* who sold it to me; here they are:

I am VERY surprised that MS gave you a new Key over the phone!
You must have done some fancy footwork, there

I trust you told MS about it over the phone as well?
