Windows 7: Service registration is missing or corrupt

09 Mar 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

So basically I can go into Dreamspark and it gives you a list of OS's for a "One time purchase." After you "purchase" a copy, it gives you the ISO to download and a standard activation key. I got windows 8 through this when I upgraded the main partition of my laptop a couple years ago and never had this much trouble which is why it's weird. I'm thinking the install got corrupted, for instance if I use the snipping tool and go to save, it keeps popping up a DLL error before it eventually works so I was going to try this

before contacting the IT dept. Honestly it'd probably be quicker to nuke the partition and install again than contact them lol xD.

I'll touch base when I get it sorted out.

Have a chat with your Dreamspark IT people they should be able to confirm it.
On another note according to wikipedia w7 pro only available on the premium package..

Be intrigued as to what they say keep me updated please.

I have been unsuccessful with the normal routes. Is it possible for me to do a repair install of the Windows 7 partition without affecting the Windows 10 partition?

Hi Zach,
thats unfortunate 1 last thing to try thou, Recreate Licence store, see screenshot

Not sure about the repair install w7/w10 but i should think as long as you select the correct partition shouldn't be a problem.

note W7 does not like being>> second << in the boot order, it does give rise to failing updates if configured this way.
