Windows 7: Windows 7 update fails and Windows not genuine message is appearing

13 Mar 2013   #161

windows 7 pro 64 bit

Hi Tom,

Finally got around to making a clean install. I decided to purchase another Intel SSD and install it there. I left everything on the other drive and just disconnected it. That way I can switch back and forth as I need to until I'm satisfied with the new install. I just started yesterday.

I want to thank you again for so much determination in helping me. I learned a lot during the process. I'm sure that if you use that same determination with your university work, you will certainly succeed.

Thanks again.

Hi Louis,

Thanks for the update, I'm glad things have all worked out now.

Once again, you're most welcome for the help. I'm sorry we couldn't make things work in the end but I'm glad you learnt a lot in this process
