Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600) 32-bit

I brought it preowned..I just don't have the key, obviously the previous owner will have. But exteme to end the help due to that. Plus I have more than 1 comp, and they are definitely genuine. Do you carry checks on every person that handles, every component, that its connected to genuine sources? Because that's just abit silly. I would just like help is all

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

If the product was gifted to you, that would be different, but since your friend retained the key, it violates the SevenForums rules because it violates the licensing agreement between your friend and Microsoft.

Before you respond, make sure you read rule 4 of very closely to understand our position.
