I bought a new copy of windows 7 not even a month ago. Shortly after that, my motherboard died, and I replaced it, keeping the same hard drive with the Windows 7 installation.

Now I am getting continual validation messages, and none of the options seem to work. The online validation fails because of "an unknown error." When I try "re-enter your product key," the validation fails. When I try to use the automatic phone validation, the pull-down list of phone numbers is blank. I downloaded "legitcheck" from the windows website, but when I run it, the "download" button is greyed out and inactive.

I opened a chat with a windows representative last night. I gave him my product key; he checked and said it was still valid. Yet I still get constant validation messages.

How can I solve this once and for all?

The major limitation of an OEM license is that it cannot be transferred between motherboards - it's locked to the first one on which it is activated.

If you're lucky, and get a friendly Activation operator on the day you try, you may be able to persuade them to allow activation on the new motherboard - otherwise, you're SOL.

telephone activation (operator calls)
Click on the Start button
in the Search box, type
and hit the Enter key
follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

Wait, do I have an OEM license? Like you would get bundled into a pre-made computer? I was under the impression that I was buying a regular copy of windows -- or don't they work that way anymore?

Listen, here's the main thing: I don't know what number to call. As I stated in my post, the pull-down list of numbers to call is blank.

Yes - you have an OEM System Builder license, complete with COA sticker (I hope!)

There are a number of reasons the OEM License is a lot cheaper than the Full Retail license:
1) you only get 1 DVD for either 32-bit or 64-bit install, rather than 2 with the Full license
2) OEM System Builder licenses get no support from MS
3) OEM System Builder licenses are supposed to have a second System Builder License agreement on the outside of the package stating the restrictions of use/sale
4) OEM licenses are supposed ONLY to be installed on new computers.
5) and most important - OEM Licenses are restricted to use on the first computer on which they are activated. In MS terms this effectively means the first motherboard, unless you can show that any replacement was necessary because of hardware failure.

Ongoing BSOD code 0x0000007b (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE), mobo swap
I want to try everything possible before doing a clean W7 install. The system is Windows 7 (64-bit). I had a problem, either the CPU or the motherboard died. I have a new mobo+CPU now (Asus B85M-G with Intel I5-4460). Previous hardware was MSI 770-C45 with Phenom X6 1090T. After I turned on...

W7 activation -- new MOBO fine but LAN connection wants activation
Hi there I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around). However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter...

Windows 7 and my 2nd mobo/cpu swap
I just have to say that Windows 7 is very good with hardware swaps. I initially installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit in August of 2009 with a Q6600 and an Asus P5Q Pro and 8GB of ram. In November of 2010 I upgraded to an i7 870 and Asus P7P55D-E with 8GB of ram and Windows booted up just fine and...

Going to swap mobo and cpu shortly
Wish me luck. Should go smoothly like it did the last time. Win7 Ultimate 64bit Last swap was a Q6600 Asus board to an i7 870 and Asus board. Powered up, Win 7 saw the new hardware, installed drivers, rebooted and all was good. Now is the i7 870 Asus to an i7 2600K Asus board. I am still...
