Windows 7: 'This Copy of Windows Is Not Genuine' error after hd clone

'This Copy of Windows Is Not Genuine' error after hd clone

Hi There
First off I guess I should say that I am not very experienced with computers, hardware, software & terminology I'll thank you in advance for your patience.
I recently cloned my hard drive to a new bigger drive using Macrium Reflect & following the instructions given in this article - How to Upgrade Your Existing Hard Drive in Under an Hour. I don't think I followed the instructions to a tee as I didn't get the same result as they did in the article.
ie: I was not presented with the option to Maximize the size of the new hard drive in order to take advantage of the new disk size & I still haven't figured out how to do that.
When the cloning was complete I unplugged the old had drive and booted up the new hard drive but ran into some problem & needed to use the Recovery media to fix the booting process. Which it did but I was then immediately given the This Copy of Windows Is Not Genuine message.
I noticed that my hard drive now had the System Reserved partition as a separate drive (f) from the C drive. Whereas before it had not had a drive letter associated with it. So I removed the drive letter via Disk Management.
I tried to just go back to my old hard drive but there was a problem with that booting up now & I used the Recovery Media to repair it & when it booted up it also now gave me the This Copy of Windows Is Not Genuine (TCOWING). I also recall seeing (I don't remember exactly where now, when looking at the drives listed on the computer it showed the C drive with the new hard drive and at the bottom of the list of drives it showed the C drive again as 'missing' I don't know if that is significant.
I am currently using the new bigger hard drive & getting the TCOWING error message.

Here is the info requested:

Welcome to our forum YRobdogg

You will need to install a proper Windows 7 using the proper COA key to activate properly.

From your log.

Windows Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00400 Windows Product ID Type: 2 Windows License Type: OEM SLP
You have a OEM/SLP key from a Dell computer on a computer with a MSI retail motherboard.
This makes this Windows 7 installation a counterfeit on this computer.

I really don't know what a [TCOWING] is.

You will also need a proper install and activation of Office.
