Windows 7: Windows 7 64BIT 'This computer is not running genuine Windows'

03 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64BIT

No problems in Device Manager. All clear.
Tried running them drivers and get the same message as I did with the Intel ones, 'Error: This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software'.

I get the feeling I'm going to be completely reloading this system. I'm sure the client has done something with this that they are not telling me about.

<chuckle> BTDT!
Perhaps a repair install, rather than nuke&pave?
