Windows 7: Windows thinks that my software isn't valid ever since i reinstalled

06 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Windows thinks that my software isn't valid ever since i reinstalled

OK, my computer is an HP envy 14 that came preinstalled with windows 7 x64. I was negligent enough to forget to make a reinstall disk, which the computer came without. I dual booted linux on my computer, and for some reason that stopped my windows from booting. So, I used the reinstall disk from my kind sister's computer (a Dell latitude E6140) and set about going from there. It was 32bit, but it worked fine for a few months, but then windows said that my software wasn't genuine, which i know it is. I looked through all of the forums i frequent, but nothing came up that helped. I've tried sfc /scannow, a simple chkdsk, more reboots than I can count, updated my bios, checked my drivers, and finally used some program called Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool (1.9.0027.0) This is what it gave me:

I'm fairly computer-savy, but i'm not entirely sure what to do with this... does anybody have some recommendations?
Thanks in advance :)

Windows 7 Pro with SP1 32bit

If you have a genuine Product Key then I suggest that you download an ISO of Windows 7 that had come preinstalled on your computer from Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) My Digital Life. Burn it on a DVD and install Windows 7 from it. Then activate the Windows 7 with the Product Key that you have,

Your problem may be arising because the version and the architecture of your sister's Window 7 Setup DVD may not be the same as the one that you had got originally as preinstalled.

Otherwise you may approach your vendor and/or HP and request for a reinstall disk. They should normally have no problem in supplying you with one.

The chances are that your problem is that you reinstalled using a Retail disk, rather than the manufacturer's Recovery system - this means that the certificates required for self-activation of the OEM_SLP Key you are using aren't present, so self-activation fails.
You need to change the Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case, by going to teh System properties page, and using hte link to Change Product Key at the bootom of the page - follow the instructions there. You may have to activate by phone.

NOTE: - this will only work if your COA is for the same edition of Windows as the current installation!
