    i upgraded my old machine.

    it was running a bios slic - and it seems to be ok thus far.

    this pc - i wanted to finish my OC before doing a bios slic, so i used the Windows 7 loader

    it was fine, untill today - now i get a message saying it's not genuine.

    any way around this? bios slic?

    thanks guys

    Have you by chance either let the PC hibernate or sleep? Sometimes some systems lose activation during them events in which case a restart fixes it.

    I would recommend installing the latest version if that's what you didn't use already and try one of the loaders other modes. Some systems may become deactivated based on the SLIC's location and switching these modes around can sometimes help.

    Also be sure a service is running, it's called Software Protection (sppsvc) and it should be set to Automatic (Delayed Start, Started).

    so i redid the loader/cert, rebooted without the genuine error

    checked the SPPSVC - wasnt running....

    in services, it was set to "automatic (delayed start)"

    but wasnt i started it......

    hopefully that resolves it...

    is there a way to get the bios slic if the link is dead?
