    See my previous post - no need to buy some dodgy key - we can get your Windows 7 OEM activation back based on the firmware marker.

    ... I will need that marker serial.. run ADT.. it should show it under Oem Table Id:
    I would love to see how the process works!

    You need the matching OEM certificate file and a script to use it. Basically you recreate the factory OEM install media. As far as I know if you install the same version of Windows installed at the factory its legal. It will activate the same way the original factory install did, against the SLIC table in the BIOS. It's the same thing as paying them for recovery media, minus the paying for it part.
    I do up my own custom $OEM$ sources folder for each PC with the OEM info for the system screen and some OEM logo's etc. Mine doesn't have the certificate file as I'm installing Windows 10 and my PC's don't have the SLIC table anyway. I can do all the other OEM customization though. Mine are actually pretty bare compared to what the OEM crams in there.

    Sorry, I must have overlooked your 1st reply. I ran ADT, & saved the Windows Diagnostic Report.
    Is this what you need? HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\ACPI\RSDT\DELL__\CBX3___\01072009
    Thanks.

    Once installed I will send instructions for activation.

    Windows 7 activation


    Reply for Superfly:
    Thanks for the message with Windows 7 activation instructions. Once I've backed up & saved
    everything, probably over the weekend, I should be ready to reinstall Windows 7 Pro, which as you have
    suggested, NavyLCDR will be able to help me with, as I don't have any install discs for that version of Windows.
    Thanks again.

    Windows 7 Pro install


    Reply for NavyLCDR:
    As I will need to reinstall Windows 7 Pro so I can activate it, then upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, Superfly has
    suggested you may be able to help me with a link (or info) to do that?
    Thanks.

    hiccup...


    Have to delay reverting back to Windows 7, as I thought it would be a good idea to have my Lenovo G580 laptop at hand to have online access should there be any hiccups. Collected it from my sisters where it had been for the last 2 months without use, & lo & behold...it won't boot up. I expected the battery to be flat, but after connecting the mains charger there is no life at all, no lights no sound. I googled the problem, & tried the various suggestions, pressing the start button 10 times, hold it for 30 seconds, without the battery etc; etc; but no joy. So have ordered a new charger lead just in case that's the problem. If not, then I will have to take it apart & circuit test it to see what component is causing the trouble.
    Hopefully I can fix it, & then do the Dell reinstall.
