After many years my favourite W7 install turns out to be "not genuine". It is a W7 pro-N install. Has been online and steadily running and updating for damnifiknowhowmany years now. I inherited the system and never gave it a single thought. She has run virus protection from every one and never been flagged. An old gateway machine that I use for recovering files ect. CAN NOT find a place to get a 7 pro N key that I trust. It's going to be painful but will probably end up upgrading to a 64 bit pro install now. Sad because the pro N was really trimmed down. It was almost a CE version.

:doh: :( :doh: :( :reallysad: :reallysad:

As long as the deal is good for you it is good for me.

Yes Shawn, my favourite search ninja. I am VERY aware of what I had and where it was available. I have been using this install as a tool for years. I have an original install iso here some where on file. HOWEVER the key is unavailable to me at this time.

From what I read the only difference in the "N" version is that it ships without Media Center.
Media Center download size is 130mb.
Win7 Pro 32bit should be very close to the same size and keys are readily available on the fleabay.

Well there were a few other things "removed" from the install. It's just going to bite knowing that it was a unique install and now it's junk. Kinda grew attached to that thing. It was named Junk-2.

You can't re-auth the key with Microsoft?

Tried that. Turns out it wasn't a valid key. So am basically rebuilding the whole install from bottom up. Will be good in a few days.
