Need help activating windows 7 (I own a serial key) - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Because it has a space in it. It is not together as it is slmgr(space)/rearm. Once you hit enter about 2 seconds later you will see this popup. Thanks

I am a legit owner of windows 7 and I want to activate my own key. However, there is no where to put it on system screen.
Can anyone help me with how I can register my real serial key?
Thank you

You most probably downloaded a preactivated version of Windows 7. In other words a pirated version.

You should have downloaded from the following links: http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds
