I had some confusion with the ISO extractor but I found that if I just deleted the ei.cfg file from the usb flash drive it worked.

Again Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving.


Hello again, you're welcome and happy turkey-day; good to see you got it running and thanks for the update.

Windows 7 now claiming to be counterfeit

About a month ago I fixed my laptop (netbook) through this tutorial. Now recently windows is saying I may be running a counterfeit version but the serial key I am using for windows 7 is the key I had and have since I purchased this netbook.

Could this have anything to do with the way windows was installed?

How can I fix this problem if the windows serial number is actually mine and not counterfeit?

Is it a retail key or the one which came pre-installed on the netbook located on the COA sticker on machine? Are you sure you installed the correct version?

Did it activate correctly at Computer>Properties? It may be that it never activated. What does the exact status say there now?

Try inserting the Product Key again at the activation link there, or run an Elevated Command Line and type slmgr -ipk followed by a space and the Product key. Then activate at Computer>Properties.

You'll get more advice if you post a new thread in Activation forum here.
