Hmmm..most interesting. This is what the mgadiag log shows:

Quote:
Windows License Type: COA SLP
Quote:
License Status: Notification
Notification Reason: 0xC004F009 (grace time expired).
Remaining Windows rearm count: 2
1) Though you say that Windows 7 came preinstalled on your machine, the current key is COA-SLP and not OEM-SLP. That indicates that the COA key has been used (if there is one), probably to phone activate, sometime in the past. Or windows has been activated using some irregular means such as a loader.

2) The error 0xC004F009 means that the Software Licensing Service reported that the grace period expired. This can happen if the grace period expires before the system is activated.


Without going into too much detail, I would just say, call up MS and do a phone activation. If your system is genuine, there'll be no issue.

If what you are saying is true, Bestbuy took you for a ride. Otherwise, you are taking us for a ride.

Only you know the truth, so the two options are;

1) take the machine to Bestbuy and confront them with that mgadiag log.

2) Buy a genuine copy of Windows 7.
