    Obviously, you bought a "cheap key", please refer to this link, http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/29075-Better-way-to-activate?

    If I were you, I will format then install and use DAZ loader, then activate and download ALL updates. You'll get a genuine windows 7.

    This also happened to someone i no recently. He bought win 7 from ebay in good faith and after some months the counterfeit message appeared. He reported this to microsoft and got a new key and media from them.
    If the ebay seller is making money on scams then report them. Thats assuming the seller did not tell you that the key had already been used.

    I think you were extremely unlucky with Microsoft. As far as i am aware if you purchase a good quality counterfiet and have proof of purchase then you should be entitled to their complementary offer. This policy was to encourage reporting and combating counterfeit software. Really glad you got a result in the end tho via your credit card company.

    so download it now, save it to a flash drive or another partition. then just format your system partition, install with the dvd you have, don't enter a key, and select activate later. then after you are up and running, install the loader from your flash drive or other partition...

    easy as pie :p


    @acrsn, that's good you got reimbursed for your troubles.

    i see people selling counterfeit copies of 7 and Office everyday on craigslist. i really hope there aren't people out there that think they are getting real genuine copies with valid keys for $40. i put up a post every so often warning people not to buy such crap, but to each his own. why pay anything for it, really? so grateful for MDL :worthy::worthy::worthy:

    removing the ei.cfg file has nothing to do with your copy being counterfeit.

    Use Hazar's or DAZ'z 7loader. If that doesn't work use Windows Activator Extreme V3.305 and activate trial. Then use 7loader to activate.

    If these don't work then run virus scans to using IOBIT Security 360.
