Can I replace my Mobo issue free?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am aware that OEM copies of Windows are tied to the original motherboard with which they are installed and as such, the motherboard cannot be swapped out without a tremendous amount of hassle or a full retail version of Windows.

I recently, unknowingly purchased a Counterfeit copy of Windows 7 Professional. I reported this to microsoft @ microsoft.com/howtotell and followed their instruction to recieve a complimentary software replacement kit.

I am wondering however, if I can swap my motherboard out hassle free when using the "Get Genuine Online Kit" they have sent me (which I have already installed on my PC). Technically, I am assuming this does not count as a full retail copy of Windows.

I don't want to swap out my MoBo if this will invalidate my "GGOK" version of Windows, so any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

It might be no problem at all. I don't know anything about this Get Genuine Online Kit, but it sounds to me like you'll always have to install it every time you start with a fresh installation since your copy of Windows 7 is a counterfeit.

Counterfeit means nothing, you just don't have a Key. You can use 3rd party sources to get this windows validation. No big deal.

I don't know how you bought this copy. Kind of hard to screw up like that, but I don't really see MSFT helping you out since you never gave them any of your money.

Thats like me downloading windows 7 off the internet, not having a key, calling msft and asking for validation. It makes no sense.

They already helped him. They sent him the "Gent Genuine Online Kit", he installed it, his installation then became genuine, but now he's wondering what will happen if he formats and starts over fresh.

Therefore, my answer is that he'll probably always have to install the Get Genuine Online Kit every single time he is finished formatting and starting over. It's just 1 extra step, so it's really no big deal.

That is pretty nifty, he cheated the system with Microsoft's help.

Microsoft made up for an individuals personal mistake I am surprised. Kudo's to them.

Yeah, but they don't make it easy to get that kit either. It looks to me like if I were to go intentionally buy a counterfeit copy just to save a few bucks, then Microsoft would deny me access to that kit.

Hey guys, just to clarify;

I (stupidly) bought a copy of Win7 Prof on eBay for $100.
Upon install it of course, failed to validate.

From there I went to microsoft.com/howtotell which has an option to Report a Counterfeit. They ask that you file a report and mail them the physical evidence with the sellers details, which they will assess and if confirmed, send you the GGOK.

Two weeks later, a GGOK version of Windows 7 Ultimate (SCORE!) came in the mail, complete with 32 & 64 bit version discs and it's own Product key.
A clean install from the 64 bit disc ensured no counterfeit software remained on my PC.
I guess it's Microsoft's way of thanking me for helping stop piracy.

I really lucked out on this and it is obviously on a case by case basis.
Just to further my insane lucky streak, a paypal dispute ensured I got my full refund (including postage!) from the seller.

In the end, I paid $5.60 AUD (Postage to Microsoft) for a Genuine copy of Win7Ultimate.

It's obviously a rare occurence, which means its even harder to find out the info on switching MoBo's.

***So the GGOK isn't an additional install stage; it's a clean install from its own disc with it's own unique product key. Like any other full version of Windows purchased through normal means.

Whoa, wait a sec....

Does the label on the 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs say anything about being a special GGOK version?

I will have to check when I get home, I know it came in a standard Dvd sized case (as opposed to the thicker, rounded-corner case) and it said Get Genuine Online Kit on the front of it. As for the discs, I don't know till I get home.

The product key was standard.
The OEM versions are xxxxx-xxxxx-OEM-xxxxx i think.
This version was the normal xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.
