Ok, here's the story.

1. I recently built a custom pc and i installed a pirated compy of windows 7 on it, refusing to pay.

2. The OS was working fine with no issues until, about 2 weeks ago, it said my copy was not genuine and I had to get a new activation key.

3. After I tried several keys to no avail, I tried typing a command line into command prompt that was supposed to reset the authetication timer. All I succeeded in doing was shortening my time from 30 days, to 3 days.

4. Next I tried several hacks, with the first one being RemoveWAT. It didn't work and after i used it, my pc had problems loading up normally., I would get the BSOD saying this error: IRQL _ NOT _LESS_OR_EQUAL

5. Then I tried Hal7600, which gave me similar results. I finally tried Winloader extreme, which worked, but screwed up a few of my drivers, which I reinstalled.

6. I later found out that the first hack gace me a virus which was the cause of the BSOD error message, so I removed it through Norton. At this point, everything was fine.

7. Now, last night when I shut down my pc, Windows 7 automatically installed some updates upon shutdown. Now today, when i turn it on, it gets to the screen where the multi-colored orbs are forming the Windows logo and will freeze, and then it will tell me that Windows cannot start. The computer will also not start in any version of Safe Mode. So far, I've tried to repair windows through the F8 startup menu and it said that it couldn't automatically repair windows.

I've also tried running a memory diagnostic and I've met similar results. I've also tried using system restore and loading with the last working settings, all of which failed. What can I do next?

I sincerely doubt you will receive any help here.

*sigh*

I expected as much. Thanks for telling me not to waste my time. Perhaps a slightly different issue could be helped then? How would i uninstall Windows without starting it up. I have a LEGAL copy of XP and I could install that untill I figure out my W7 issue.

You don't uninstall Windows...you just delete it.

I personally would delete the entire partition it's on...and then format a new partition/install the new O/S.

I suggest that you read the Forum Rules, regarding illegal versions of software. A link to such...is in my signature.

"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."

This topic is now closed.
