Windows 7: 7 Pro Upgrade suddenly not genuine (0xC004F200)

7 Pro Upgrade suddenly not genuine (0xC004F200)

It's an HP computer that originally had Windows 7 Home but it was upgraded to Windows 7 Pro about 2 years ago. It's now showing that Windows isn't genuine. It seems to have happened after installing an update, but I'm not positive. It had Symantec Endpoint installed but I removed that once I started troubleshooting.

I tried the fix where I stop sppsvc, rename tokens.dat to tokens.bar, and then start sppsvc. When I run slui.exe I get a Software Licensing window that says Windows isn't genuine, go online and validate. If I try that it fails and advises me to purchase Windows.

If I run slui.exe 3 at that point and enter the 7 Pro upgrade product key, I get Error 0xC004F061, this product key can only be used for upgrading, not for clean installations.

Any advice that will avoid having to re-install and re-upgrade would be much appreciated.

Here is the MGADiag:

You have he Default Key for Windows 7 Pro installed - which can never be activated.

What type of Upgrade Key do you have? A full retail one with disks, or an Anytime Upgrade?

If it's a Full Upgrade, then a repair install will work (with a bit of fiddling).
If it's an Anytime Upgrade, that option isn't open to you, and you'll have to either do a clean install of Home followed by an upgrade, or see if MS Activation support can help (I don't know if they will or not).

Let me know, and we'll proceed from there.

Thanks for the response. I do believe it was the Anytime Upgrade. Some of this info I'm getting from a friend that's already tried several fixes, including talking to MS Activation support for 2 hours. Apparently some techs thought they got it working but it still wouldn't activate, and they would put him on hold and then hang up. So that's nice.

It sounds like a re-install is the only option, but I want to confirm it what the upgrade type was.

That makes sense - everything went ok, I hope?

Good luck with the new install!
