When downloading XP mode for Windows 7 you need to download the latest WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) in order for the site to recognise the validity of your copy of Windows 7.

The only times the 'Not genuine' message will appear is if you have either a pirated copy or pre activated copy of Windows 7 and as such we cannot offer support for such software.

If, on the other hand, it's a legitimate copy of the Windows 7 DVD (purchased legally) you may need to get into contact with the vendor who sold you the software.

Windows 7 loaders are designed to 'bypass' the activation technologies and WGA within Windows 7. It is illegal to use such applications and as such cannot be offered as a solution in these forums. Such disregard can result in users being banned.

And of course there he goes!! Ejit.

Any way, orbitial, ther have been known case where retail versions of win 7 can cause this so its not always down to piracy, or non activated, and you only need to do the WGA thing once for XP mode to obtain, you just make sure you click save on all downloads for XP mode.

Now back to business - djokica89 - What version of win 7 are you running - retail or OEM.
