Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro Refurbished PCs reinstall

Windows 7 Pro Refurbished PCs reinstall

Back story (if you want to know why): A friend of mine bought this computer with Windows 7, then changed so much (stuff for lack of a better word), that Windows DVD Maker opened instead of ANYTHING else you clicked on unless you Right Click > Run in Sandbox mode the program (never seen this option before). Also, I was unable to install any programs or uninstall in programs. So re-install Windows is my default move when I don't know what else to do.

What I did:
1) I read:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

2) I made a bootable USB with:
Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

and Windows 7 Professional x86 SP1 (old) X17-24280.iso from:
Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from Digital River

What happened:
1) The Windows 7 Pro Refurbished PCs OEM Software sticker on the laptop doesn't have a Product Key on it. There is a Windows XP Professional sticker also on the bottom, this Product Key obviously didn't work either (but I tried it).

2) Currently running Windows 7 Pro, but not activated.

What I want to do:
1) Get Win 7 activated.

What I wish I would have done:
1) Got a Diagnostic Report BEFORE I re-installed Win 7.

What I'm thinking about doing:
1) Trying to install Windows XP with the Product Key.

Here is a picture of the stickers (I blacked out some of the numbers). Nothing in the battery compartment.

The installed Product Key is the Default Key for Win7 Pro - and can never be activated.
What EXACTLY does the refurbisher's sticker say?
Most refurbishers are required to affix a proper COA sticker for the new OS alongside the old - and this should have the full Product Key on it. Many others with so-called 'refurbisher's stickers' on are in fact counterfeits.

Check inside the battery compartment - the COA sticker may be there.

If it was refurbed by one of the big companies, it would have a sticker like the ones here...
http://www.nused.com/page.php/pageKey=70
...and the old license would have been crossed out.
Smaller companies are still required to affix proper labels, and cross out the old one.

This does NOT look like a proper label to me - it looks like a printed Avery label.
Is there a metallic strip? with hologram?
If not, then it's counterfeit.

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

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

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!

Please don't tell someone that the COA that was shown in the top pictures (that do not contain a long key number) are invalid or counterfeit. These are the current style COA's that are being issued by Microsoft. These COA's require that the refurbisher submit a tag number from the COA to obtain the license key to input on the computer.

I am a registered Microsoft Refurbisher and these are the exact COA's I get shipped to me directly from Microsoft and one of the 3 party vendors I get my business Refurbisher packs from. In the refurbishing business, if the computer is for an individual, school, non-profit or other qualified group you can obtain the COA and keys form Microsoft and they are know as citizenship licenses. If its for a business you have to purchase it from an authorized distributor and you still get the same type of COA.

I just received a shipment today and they look just like the one shown by the original poster.

Ah - thanks for that. This is apparently a new procedure.
Therefore presumably you have to issue a separate piece of paper to the end-user with the Key on it?
