Windows 7: Reinstall After Crash - Product Key Blocked

28 Dec 2018   #11

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

Hi Kevin,

First off you dont sound Dumb, Exactly what forums like this are for.

OK bad news to start
NO WAY a GENUINE Ultimate product key will cost less than $300, if you can find one.

Lets keep going got a few more ideas

1) even tho youve not got a Service tag goto the Dell home page for your lappy, use the Let me Detect option might give us a fallback solution

2) Read this and run Superflys tool, it can pull up original details, possibly the original OEM product key
( i did say earlier that the keys not in the Bios - was referring to your Ultimate Company key)
ShowKeyPlus - Windows 10 Forums

3) Use the Acronis back up you have and run/post the output
slmgr /dli

4) try this
Try phone activation:

Activate Windows 7 manually:
1. Click Start, and in the Search box type : slui.exe 4

2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard

3. Select your Country.
4. Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.

Offer to send a copy of that Email
Not to optimistic as yours is an MSDN key

I did all that you said. I finally figured out how to get to a real person. He said "too many activations - you have exceeded your limit." He was unwilling to help further. Basically get a new key.
I will find something but I really appreciate your assistance to me.
You take care and thank you.
