You have rights to support on this legitimate OS. If it's claiming it's not the right version you could have some bum media that they'll replace.
So I got a new computer and there were problems so I had to reformat it. I deleted the two partitions that were on the SSD, clearing it off completely.
I chose the SSD and installed windows 7, and it started up fine.
Problem is I think I messed up somewhere along the way, because when the computer starts (and in the BIOS is set to launch to the SSD), it doesn't boot to windows. It says the media is missing.
I can launch windows manually if I set the bios to the "Windows Boot Manager" or whatever it's called, but if it's set to the SSD it doesn't launch.
I think there's something wrong with the booting..
I looked at suggestions online and found that people did the system repair from a windows 7 cd. I tried that, except when I hit repair the CD says I'm not using the right version of windows, so I can't use the repair function... Yes this version of windows is legitimate.
Can anyone help?
