If you get this message, and you know that your copy is genuine, try removing all external devices plugged into your machine and rebooting. (Windows figured that your hardware configuration is not the same as it was so you must be doing something dodgy, LOL.)

If you still get the same message, use the automated system that comes up and MS will give you the codes to enter so you can boot properly.

(I spent a whole afternoon this week trying to solve this, when it can be fixed in a few minutes. Live and learn.)
