Windows 7: Laptop, new HDD, Product Key (from the casing) not working.

02 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Laptop, new HDD, Product Key (from the casing) not working.

First of all, excuse be if there have been threads considering this issue, but I often seem to be the unlucky single one who gets certain difficulties.
Now, to the not-so-fun-part:
Recently, I've bought a SSD for my laptop, installed it as primary drive, installed Windows 7 Home Premium on it, and I used the product key printed on the casing of my laptop. (I did not format the secondary drive, still carrying my old installation of Windows 7 Home Premium, until I had migrated my data.)
At first, the Product key was accepted, until now, 3 days later. Suddenly, I get this "Activate NAO!" message.
As you might understand, I am quite frustrated.
Here is that report you want:

Okay, The problem seems to have solved itself.
I just pressed "change product key" and inserted the key from the casing.

Yep - that's because the Key you were using relies on the SLIC table and Licenses from within the manufacturer's recovery media, and I suspect that you used a Retail disk for the reinstall? (which doesn't contain the required licenses)
