COUNTERFEIT if not by AMAZON,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Win Pro 7 SP1 64-bit English 1pk DSP OEI DVD (This OEM software is intended for system builders only) (DVD-ROM)
Yeah i have just discovered this is not as advertised, yes was a german supplier and does turn out to be a Dell reinstallation disc, hell if i knew that and everyone else would never have purchased, i did wonder why automatic activation did not work so tried manual activation and that's when i discovered the major issue so is COUTERFEIT and not impressed, did previously purchase a 32 bit version and that was through amazon but was english and worked great, hearing the words from DELL say it is activated already on another computer in another country was so depressing, i stated Amazon and they literally laughed, seems this is not a first then, amazed and bemused is an understatement. It should be noted for the first 30 days all was great with no issues, installed and worked great then you are hit with "your copy of windows in NOT genuine, aaaaarrrrggggghhhhh. Yes very angry and annoyed.
UPDATE: Contacted Amazon and to my surpise was offered a full refund so in the process of that now, great work Amazon.

Inform MS of this - they do have a counterfeit website address - I did so with some that I purchased on Ebay and rec'd W7 32/64bit W7 Ultimate in place via MS (they are marked Not For Resale" and "Replacements for C/Feit items" - you do have to provide the sellers details etc. I had to send my copies off to Dublin from memory. I'd also inform MS that Amazon are also advertising these items and that people are buying them via the Amazon website. Google MS Counterfeit and I'm sure something will turn up - I can't find their URL.

Yeah Amazon acted very quickly and had my refund in no time, i did reorder but with a different merchant on Amazon and all was good but yes i do agree that the seller should be made to state what they are actually selling is true and genuine as the information is rather vague to say the least.

Had the exact same problem. Installed it and on 3 weeks of use thinking it was fine, my computer displayed a message saying that this copy of Windows is not genuine and that the product key was invalid also that I may be a victim of software counterfeit. Sent a report to the Microsoft counterfeit department and also sending my copy to Dublin. will be complaining to Amazon for a refund
