    Refurb License limitations

    Hi there,
    I looked through past threads for something similar but was unable to find anything which answered my questions.

    I bagged myself a bargain 18 months ago and picked up a Dell mini pc which had been refurbed and upgraded from XP with a Win 7 Refurb license and only cost 95.

    I typically reinstall the OS every few months to keep things running smoothly as this little pc serves media to my house and is where everything is kept.

    Irritatingly I have been unable to do a reinstall as last time I tried it told me the product key I have does not go with the installation disk I have.
    The place I bought the pc was happy to do a reinstall, which at the time was to add a 1TB disk, and not charge me. They were also reluctant to offer me my own disk to go with the pc as it may jeopardise their staus as issuers of the refurb license.

    My questions are these:

    - where can I obtain a refurb download link? )I have one for a HP laptop where I dl'd a clean and legal copy)

    - does a SLIC table have anything to do with not being able to add different hardware to the pc without it saying that it is not licenses to THIS pc? (am I misunderstanding SLIC?)

    - Will any Win7 disk work if the SLIC table conditions are met? I am reluctant to begin a reinstall, get to the end and find I don't have a working pc!

    Thanks in advance

    I wonder if they are selling counterfeit Win7 to you. Download and run MGADiag.exe,
    post back its report in the text box obtained by clicking on # on reply box toolbar. We have the top Win7 activation specialist in the world here who will have a look at it.

    Otherwise you should use the official installer provided in Step 1 with tool to burn to DVD or stick in Step 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Then follow the steps given to get and keep a perfect install.

    It is not necessary to reinstall your OS every few months now that there is good backup imaging to reapply an image of your finished perfect install in 20 minutes. More in tutorial.

    To add to this, a properly maintained installation of Windows does not need to be reinstalled on a regular basis. My primary Windows 7 machine has had its installation running since 2012 when I built the machine and it's still running like a champ; even more impressive is my Windows XP machine which has had its installation running since 2008 without hiccups.

    I reinstall frequently, repair install is great, too.

    You should be able to do it , if you wish.

    You are supposed to get a COA with a refurb.

    As far as I know, you should therefore have a product key.

    Each refurbished PC must be given a new genuine Windows software license (new operating system, Certificate of Authenticity, and recovery solution).

    Your machine should have TWO COA stickers - one for the original OS, and one for Windows 7 Home Premium.
    The Key for Win 7 should match the one in your MGADiag report.
    The refurbisher is required to provide means of reinstalling the OS with the original shipment

    Here's one crew that does it right for comparison (although I suspect they are rather larger!)

    I've consulted the oracle and he says your refurb license looks legit as long as there is a COA sticker to back it up. Win7 cannot be sold without a COA sticker. It should be affixed to the machine along with the old Vista sticker.

    Input the Product Key from that sticker at Computer>Properties Activation link. Make sure you get the characters correct as that is the main reason for rejection.

    If it rejects it again, where did you get the installation media? Start over with the official Win7 installation media provided in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following those steps to get and keep a perfect install.
