    Activate Windows 7: Home Premium on professional product key - please help!

    Hello world

    I hope you can help me!
    I have a product key for Windows 7 Home Premium. I downloaded it online when I bought it so that I never received a disc to reformat. Someone at work gave me their CD to reformat.
    After you reformat and reinstall ALL my programs, I went to activate Windows 7 again. Guess what? Turns out that I used Windows 7 Professional to reformat.
    Really, I don't want to go through reformatting and reinstalling everything and don't even know if I'll be able to get my hands on a CD to reformat Windows 7 Home Premium.
    Is there anyway can I still activate my product key for Windows 7 Home Premium Windows 7 Professional? In any case I can exchange my Home Premium product key to a professional one? I love how my computer is currently configured and won't do anything else that just activate my legitimate version of Windows 7!
    Thank you all in advance for your time.

    The only way to do it would be to buy a license for Pro-

    Since you have already apparently a licnese to Home Premium, you could buy an upgrade, and then create a repair install with the new key.

    If you bought a full Pro license, you will be able simply to insert your new key and activate that.

  • Cannot find the product key for Windows 7 Home Premium

    I don't have the product key of Windows 7 Home Premium? Where can I find it?

    Original title: Charles 111


    Welcome to the Microsoft community.

    I would like to ask you:

    • Did you buy Windows 7, or was it pre-installed on your PC?

    If you bought a copy of Windows 7, you must have the drive and the product key is on the cover of the disc or the disc itself.

    If Windows was preinstalled on your PC, there could be a sticker anywhere on the system with a product key to this topic.

    Note: Not all PC makers provide the key on a sticker on the machine body. You may need to contact them for the same thing.

  • 2 product keys for Windows 7 Home premium service pack for laptops

    I was told that on computers laptops there are two product keys for Windows 7, one is already activated by the manufacturer and one is on the bottom of the laptop on the sticker. Therefore, it is possible to use the one that is on the sticker, which is not one that is initially using the laptop?

    Computers, which are built by large manufacturers provided with pre-installed Windows are supplied with 2 two product keys:

    (A) OEM SLP: this key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes to the factory. This key is designed to work with the special instructions isn't on the hardware of this manufacturer. Then, when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP (in factory) Windows 7 key leans on the motherboard and he sees special instructions and activates. (that's why you had no need to turn on your computer after you brought it home)

    (B) SLP COA: it's the product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or at the bottom, [or in the battery compartment]) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but must be used only in certain situations (for example, if the OEM SLP key stops automatic activation for a reason any). The key must be activated by phone. (Note: all manufacturers that use the SLP OEM system are bound by contract to include a certificate of Authenticity sticker (COA), which has a COA SLP key, on the computer)

  • Valid product key for Windows Vista Home Premium

    So I recently brought a computer gateway two months ago with Windows Vista pre-installed on my computer. He had a problem some time ago, and a friend fixed my computer for me but in order for him to correct that he had to hold the operating system (Windows Vista) power off and turn it back on. I don't know what else he did to remedy, but it was working fine when I came back. He worked for several weeks to date. When I switch it on now the windows activation said windows ' windows vista home premium product key you typed is invalid for activation "options to solve this problem are the following:

    Access your computer with reduced functionality - this option logs not me in all takes me on the website of windows and asks me to buy new vista
    Type a different product key - this option only allow me to enter some characters of my product key.
    Contact dell to help solve this problem

    The laptop will now only let me use the laptop internet for searching the help/customer support. I tried manually stop, however at startup comes once again with the same error. I don't know how to fix this problem, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I called the manufacturer and microsoft, but the two keep me referring to eachother, and I continue to revolve around callling in round two, nothing has been solved and no one gave me answers or resolutions

    Yes I can help you.  Open an Administrative command prompt.  Under start accessories then right-click command run as administrator.  At the command prompt, type enter this hit "slmgr.exe /upk".  then type "slmgr.exe /cpky" press enter then type "slmgr.exe /rearm" when you restart you will be asked to enter the key.  Enter one on the sticker on the side of the computer.  You should be good.  WARNING If you do this and the key is not software then maybe you victum of pirated software.  Really, it seems that your friend has stolen the key or installed a pirated version.  If you do not now, it can happen again.

  • Impossible to change the product key for Windows 7 Home Premium after having received notification that Windows is not geniune

    I have no idea how the product key has been changed to my OS to an OEM_SLP as I have the genuine key supplied with the system on the COA label.

    I bought this system through Best Buy and today I received a notice that it uses a non-genuine version of Windows 7 Home Premium, but when I noticed the wrong product key, I have been unable to return to the good pair through my computer properties in the Activation of Windows.

    How can I update the product key without having to uninstall/reinstall?

  • How can I reactivate in my product key for window 7 Home premium

    I have a sony vaio VPC 111FM PC with original edition window7 OS Home premium. I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate. I was disappointed because some of the features my pc. was not able to operate, some drivers are absent, and software up to date, I try to install the updates several times but the problem continue to insist. While im updating I have discovered that the ultimate installed is not genuine.  I want to go back to his pre installed OS Windows 7 Home premium / factory setting, but I don't have the disk. I bought the PC from BEST BUY CA. without OS to windows 7 and recovery inside the box disk installer. CAN you help me to solve my problem? IM know not so much in the operation of a computer. Pls help me step by step to sove my concern. TY very much.

    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.

  • How can I find the product key for Windows 7 Home Premium (preinstalled) as sticker has worn through.

    Someone knows if the product key is stored in any file on windows.  Or does anyone know if Microsoft will have kept no record of the product key and can send information.

    The short answer is no.

    Even if a product key is stored in Windows and can be retrieved by various utilities third keyfinder, when Windows was preinstalled, this key is a special key used by the manufacturer of the computer to automatically activate Windows when, for example, you use the manufacturer method to restore the computer to its factory condition.

    This key can be used if you want to reinstall using a Windows CD/DVD installation that you have purchased.  To do this, you use the key on the COA label on your machine.

    If you need this key, your most likely solution is to use a bright light and a magnifying glass.  If it is completely unreadable, it is possible - though unlikely - that the manufacturer of the computer (non-Microsoft) can be useful.

    No key will be useful if you want to install Windows on another computer.  OEM (preinstalled) Microsoft software product keys are valid only for the computer on which the software was first installed.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    And if you do not score a manufacturer of recovery on your hard drive, you should be able to make your own recovery from her disks to reinstall the operating system.

    Go to programs > name of the manufacturer of your computer > then their system or recovery tools software topics for them, depending on how it is formulated.

    If you can't find any reference to it, contact the manufacturer for advice on how to make these recovery disks

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • How to activate Win 7 Home Premium SP1 if I have a product key for Win 7 Home Premium without SP1

    I bought the Dell with pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium computer. I recently had a problem with the firewall system and found that the only solution is to reinstall Windows. I downloaded .iso with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 because my current version has been already upgraded to SP1. After that I installed it, it asked me to enter the product key. I have provided the product key, but he says it's a bad touch and I realized that my product key must be for Windows 7 Home Premium without SP1.

    I downloaded .iso with Windows 7 Home Premium without SP1, but I can't install it now because it says that my current version is newer than the one I am trying to install. What can I do about it now? Can I get a product key for Win 7 Home Premium SP1 if I have Win 7 Home Premium? Service pack 1 is free anyway...

    If you have downloaded a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 integrated, you should be able to use the product key located on the COA sticker in the battery compartment.

    Skip entering product key and complete the installation.

    Click Start, right click on computer

    Click on properties

    Scroll down to the Windows Activation

    Click on the link 'change product key '.
