Windows 7: Windows 7 won't activate

Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

There are currently NO legitimate sources of Windows 7 Keys on the internet - and there were only ever three in the first place (Microsoft, Dell, and HP). ALL other sources have always been counterfeit.

ALL legitimate sales outside the three above MUST be accompanied by the disk and packaging.
