Hello. I am also having the same problem. 
My laptop is a Toshiba NB510.
The thing is, I accidentally formatted my hard drives (by thinking it would get the viruses, and not delete system files).
My initial OS was Win 7 Starter, and my brother downloaded Windows 7 Professional. After 1 month, it says the OS was not apparently genuine.
Here is my specs.
Processor: Intel® Atom™ Core CPU N2800 @ 1.86GHZ
System type: 32-bit operating system
Can you guys help me?  
my name is 15.

A OEM Windows product code is specific to the version which originally was installed.  You will need to install the Windows 7 starter in order to have the operating system activate.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You can download a Windows 7 Starter ISO by following the instructions in my post here.  I am not going to re-write that post just for you.  You will obviously have to make little adjustments to my instructions as you proceed, e.g. getting drivers that are specific to your PC.

Agouti and dc3



I'm going to try your suggestion later. I need to setup a flash drive first.
