How do you know what the model is? As far as I know, the Toshiba satellite laptops came with windows 8.

Hi @SIW2,


its in the Mgadiag, theres a wealth of info included, and in some cases MS is fooled because it only looks at parts of it, i look at all of it.

Manufacturer>TOSHIBA</Manufacturer><Model>SATELLITE C850-1H6

It could have come with W8, Bios is dated 2012 but that doesnt agree with v6.20 release date of 2016
Now that could imply a bios flash failure, known to cause activation errors, but the product key is wrong

@simisimi13
As i said above if the Bios flash failed then that would also break the exploit.

Roy, you are right ! I think I bought this laptop in 2012 and yes the model is exactly Satellite C850-1H6.(I looked it up at the bottom...

If it is a Bio Flash failure I there is not much I can do about it by myself.Also, I have no idea why this key is wrong. I might bring it to a repair shop but that would probably cost me half the price of buying a new one so I better buy just a new laptop soon

Hi

my post, no 9

If it was a genuine OEM install there will be a COA sticker with a back-up key on it, as well as the version of W7 originally installed.
You could then perform a clean install using that key.

It could have shipped with win 8 installed - likely the Home edition. That should qualify for a free "upgrade" to win10 Home Edition.
There was a time when machines shipped with win 8 ( Pro edition ) qualified for upgrade to win7.
It is possible some markets didn't include an OS.

You could check by using rweverything:
Download – RWEverything


A simpler way:
Nir sofer's little tool produkey should also show any win8 key in the msdm table

The system is NOT registered,

If there has been no Clean or Repair install in all the time you've had it then its unlikely to be upto date.

I think the key for win7 is correct but OP's (simisimi13's) toshiba laptop still fails activation because of a missing or invalid SLIC table in the BIOS. the SLIC has to be a 2.1 version (aka SLIC 2.1, not 2.0) to activate Win7 with a special oem key.



use either rw-everything & click the ACPI button in rw-everything to check if there's a SLIC tab OR google search for and run SLIC Toolkit 3.2 to check if there's a valid SLIC table in the Toshiba laptop.
