Windows 7: This copy of windows is not genuine build 7601 - cure needed

17 Jun 2012   #11

Win 7

I have got the same problem happening on a genuine win7 and started a thread on this yesterday.

My Bios is reading vista - hense why win7 now being rejected as not genuine (up-grade disc came from ACER)

ACER is demanding 139 to fix it!

Microsoft 80 for another win7 disc!

My valid Vista discs won't work due to Acer muck up on win7 install - so cannot go back to Vista.

I am in a right rut - with both companies profiting to 'fix' what should never have needed to be 'fixed'.

All was paid at purchase in good faith - yet I have a laptop that is totally useless unless I pay more to them!

I wonder how many of us are having these problems - it is such bad form by these companies.

I am feeling quite upset and robbed.

Upgrade disks for Windows 7 are NOT ones which rely on a OEM_SLP Key - they are properly OEM System Builder disks and Keys.
You should have received the proper Key with the original disk,
