It will probably reinstall Windows 7 for you, but you are really going to end up with it not activating, so you are virtually going from the frying pan into the fire.

Buying 2nd hand Windows software online is fraught with risk & disaster. Finding a new copy of Windows 7 that is totally clean is becoming a very, very difficult task.

You may have to consider going to Windows 10.

You have a Microstar computer trying to use the OEM Factory Built key for a Dell computer.

There are other indicaters in the report that further back this up
Built prior to W7 release
Incorrect SLIC table

Hi Kev,

You pay MS for the use of W7, ie the licence, the actual computer is NOT

For your MicroStar the 2 valid types are Retail or System Builder
NOT the Dell OEM product licence key you have.
THIS TYPE OF KEY CANNOT BE RESOLD

As you still have the Paypal reciept you could try to get a refund from them or the original seller
or try MS give them as much detail as possible you might get lucky.

Don't take what I posted personally, I'm just a Crazy Cajun :)

Until about 5+/- months ago I was a member of the Forum where the Loader used to activate your Win 7 OS was developed. At least I hope that's where the activator came from so it didn't come modified with Malware. Therefore I know the only two possible ways it could have been done.

Even though I was a member of the torrent/warez community for many years you'll find Me often "Preaching" about the dangers of installing pirated software and games. It's just Not worth the risk anymore. Should you decide to use a pirate activator on your Win 7, the best option would be to take the free upgrade to Win 10. Microsoft has been extremely generous in allowing Daz Loaded Win 7 and KMS emulated Win 8.1 copies to upgrade.
