Windows 7: Message from Windows 7

Windows 7 Ult. x64

On the disk you bought from Harvey Norman, does it have the letters OEM on the disk anywhere?

The MGADIAG report clearly indicates this is an OEM licence, and not a retail one.

It does have OEM on the packaging.

Then, together with the MGADIAG report, it would seem that that installation disk is meant for a pre-built Hewlett Packard machine.

Since your machine is not an HP, you will not be able to use this installation disk. Harvey Norman do not sell OEM installation disks (although they may supply OEM recovery disks with a pre-built machine).

Please provide more detail that is printed on this disk. How much did you pay for it?

Please post back a camera snap of the disk and its packaging, showing where it says OEM on it. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

In cases pointing to piracy we need to see exonerating information up front before helping you further, but if you do this we will help you sort it out as we have done for others.

Also post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums

The Product Key is from a Dell machine.
The motherboard here is a Gigabyte retail one.
The SLIC table is from a Hewlett-Packard machine

The Windows installation is counterfeit.

The Office installation is also counterfeit - based on a blocked Volume License Key

You need to reformat and reinstall using genuine media and Key.
