"Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
Product Part No.: X15-37379
Installed from 'OEM' media."

Is what Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder says. The system won't boot, and the COA is mostly unreadable. The key that MJB keyfinder gives me is clearly different from what is on the COA on bottom of laptop. So I first loaded Win 7 HP 64 bit, and got an Activation error, so I reinstalled using Win 7 HP 32 bit, and got the same error. Both installs were done with OEM discs. The machine was working prior to HDD failure, she just doesn't remember what exactly the OS was. What are her/my options to get her up and running without repurchasing a new COA.

Thanks,
Scott

Hi -
I just got this now with Magical Jellybean program in about 30 seconds -
Not sure what your problem exactly is, but I downloaded the program and hit Run > Run > and it gave me this ??

I have seen a few people have problems, but after they run it a few times, they get the key -

Download Speccy FREE >> and under Operating System, it will show you the Serial Number -

Good Luck -

<<The key that MJB keyfinder gives me is clearly different from what is on the COA on bottom of laptop.>>

First...if it's a laptop, then it came with a specific key for a specific install of Windows...from the system manufacturer. It also came with either recovery disks...a directive for the user to make recovery disks...or a recovery partition and mechanism to use such. The manufacturer is the authority for the mechanics to be used for installing that version of Windows.

<<Product Part No.: X15-37379>>

A Google search reveals that (IMO) this may be an illegal, compromised version of Windows, with many hits on the Web. So, IMO, using any key reflected for the version you mention...is probably not going to produce successful, desired results.

<<...she just doesn't remember what exactly the OS was. What are her/my options to get her up and running without repurchasing a new COA.>>

Best advice I can give you is to contact the manufacturer of the system.

Note: Installing a version of Windows which is intended for a different OEM system (read "laptop", in this case) is clearly a violation of the terms of use issued by Microsoft.

This is also a violation of the BC forum rules, which are linked in my signature.

That being the case, this topic is now closed. If you have any questions about this administrative procedures...feel free to contact me via PM.
