If you bought it off eBay or you just bought a key and downloaded the OS you might have bought a MSDN/TECHNET key which were ilegally sold and MS has deactivated them so when you go to reactivate they wont so now your copy is bad,This happened to me and i had to go purchase from MS a product key and software.There should be a link to this when you boot up and get that bad software warning.
You could call if your sure you have legit software.Ive done that about 5 differnt time's with my current copy.Everytime you upgrade and reformat you have to reactivate
it's good software i got it from the egg. i had a failed instalation before my final succesful installation maybe that affected it. it was late last nite and i was trying to ram things through a little bit at the end of the nite. this build has been terrible. holes in case over .5 mm off. etc etc. booting into 7 on ssd gave a little bit of satisfaction.
i was thinking about a clean install of 7 again...it was odd that i didn't have the option of manually dialing a call center for activation ......windows 7 is installed on a vertex 3 ssd. i didn't do any prep work on installing windows 7 i figured it would install just like vista 64.
I can run some benchmarks for you what utility do you want me to use?. atto showed a max read at about 390 seems low. i ran the test only once using the marvel controller. i was thiking of running raid with 2 64 gig drives also what is your throughput for that.
If you receive error "0xC004F061" when trying to activate Windows 7, it means you're using a product key for an upgrade version of Windows 7 and a previous version of Windows wasn't on your computer when Windows 7 was installed. To install an upgrade version of Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP must be installed on your computer, If you formatted the drive before starting the installation process, you won't be able to use the upgrade product key to activate Windows 7. To activate Windows 7, you'll need to install your previous version of Windows, and then reinstall Windows 7.
