    Can I upgrade?

    Ok., I have windows 7, I had a hard drive physical problem, so cloned my drive onto another larger faster drive. It is activated, but I get the message, this is not a varified microsoft product! Obviously it is. Can this be resolved in any way without having to purchase again?

    Activate by phone, that should take care of it.
    Activate using the telephone

    • Open Windows Activation by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, clicking Properties, and then clicking Activate Windows now. ...
    • Click Show me other ways to activate.
    • Type your Windows 7 product key, and then click Next.
    • Click Use the automated phone system.
    Also, this is a Windows 10 forums, you should post Windows 7 questions in the Windows 7 forum (

    Problem not solved

    It is a windows 10 problem as I wish to upgrade and doubt if I can. The label on the bottom of my laptop is worn and I cannot read the numbers to re-register!
