It can't hurt to try this,

Product Key Number - Change

Just use the product key on your DVD case.

You are correct Derek. I had a brain fart and didn't think of it.
But it would not explain how a OEM/SLP got installed.
It also leaves me to wonder because of the OEM/SLP, is the rest of Windows 7 install proper and correct and not defective in some way.

OEM

I hope that the code on the other side of the CD is NOT
2WCJK-R8B4Y-CWRF2-TRJKB-PV9HW.

If it is then its definately counterfiet,
Your screenshot shows the disclaimer for a >>System Builder OEM <<
and the key above is for factory built models, (Asus in this case).

Take it back to the retailer demand a refund and tell them your gonna notify MS and your local trading standards that he's selling pirated versions.

If you inform ms YOU MIGHT get lucky, no guarentee.

@Layback Bear:
Thanks for the videos. I didn't know counterfeits could look that good. You should see the counterfeits here in my country - burned on DVD-R, printed front cover on "draft" ink quality, and placed in a plastic sleeve.

Genuine MS Windows 7 DVDs are only blue in color, correct?

Nope. Home Premium is green, Professional is blue, OEM is orange, and Ultimate is black.

Your welcome Kathy.
Yes, counterfeiters are very good at what they do.

Many honest people get caught in the trap.

We had a computer store in the place I live using counterfeit and was caught and prosecuted.
The dumb ass installed them on government computers also. That is how he got caught.

He sure laid out everything for himself.

Below is my personal copy of the OEM Win7 Pro SP1 (SEA):


We don't have the fancy outer hologram (bright orange) but there is the inner hologram (stacking ring).
