Already have a valid Windows, why does validating show me to a purchase screen?

#1DoomInternPosted 6/3/2012 12:43:46 PM
I recently purchased a new Clevo W110ER and it already came with a valid Windows 7 Home Premium. Only today did it pop up saying my Windows was now genuine. It led me to the Microsoft site and I had to download this so called validation tool. I continued and I end up with choices to select between Windows 7 versions to purchase. Is this Microsoft's scheme to screw me? I don't know how to get past this.

Any help?

Microsoft does not do such things. If you bought your Windows 7 license through XoticPC or whatever, it sounds like a screw-up of some kind on their end.

Are you certain you have typed it out correctly?
