Where and how did you buy your activation key.

The reason I ask is I know of no way to buy a legal key by itself.
Microsoft operating key come with Microsoft media.
Example would be a Microsoft DVD and key together.
Their are many sites that sell keys. They get your money and run. Down the road you will have problems. Hopefully that is not the situation.

Note:
You do not have to answer my question, it's just a request.

I was able to purchase a genuine Windows 7 Ultimate key and DVD on eBay - so they still exist. I activated via telephone and have had no further issues. I would agree there's a lot of fake keys out there, especially since you can no longer buy it directly from Microsoft or an OEM copy (only Win 7 Pro).

Thank you for answering my question. Protect the DVD they are getting hard to come by.

Happy computing.

Layback Bear, if you look, that wasn't my answer that was posted....It was from orion44 who was helping you. But, bizarrely....my answer is exactly the same! Coincidences!

I have recently installed & validated W7 Professional (32 bit) on my laptop. I now want to uninstall it and install the 64 bit disc on my desktop. Will there be a problem with validation; will I have to validate again the fresh installation, bearing in mind that it is on a different machine?
