Can't activate my windows.
I get this Error Code 0xC004F063, when I'm trying to activate my windows.
After entering my product key, it loads a little, then it gives the Error Code.
The description is the following : The software Licensing Service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a require license?
I don't get it. Someone help me please? :[ What should I do?
I didn't download or anything recently. Just browsing, and youtube.
I simply hate the black background, also also this popup asking me to activate my windows.
I don't mind about the windows update, i don't even update my computer.
I'm not sure what kind of info i should be giving. Feel free to ask.
Thank you for your time!
EDIT: Oh by the way, this computer is custom made. Here are some parts:
RIPJAW RAM 2x4
Core i3 2120
No videocard ( using IGP )
my friend lent me his windows 7 copy.
It's legit, it has the packaging and everything... or rather it looks like it. I'm doubting it now...
EDIT: Not to mention, i used that exact copy on another computer before. Well, my older desktop. And it worked fine. no problem :[ Although it wasn't custom. It was a Dell.
... Am I missing something or did I forget to do something. First time making a computer.
Sounds like that disc+key was designed for Dell.
With Windows 7, there's something called SLIC licensing which requires a certificate on the DVD along with a matching certificate embedded in the BIOS.
You'll have to buy OEM or Retail media from a retailer like NCIX, Newegg, etc.
Though at this point in time, if you don't mind a little change, I'd just buy Windows 8. It was going for $69 last week, but it looks like it's up to $99 this week.
Sounds like an OEM copy that ties itself to that Dell motherboard. Time for a new copy.
EDIT: Looks like JD hit the reply button faster than me.
Oh well, as noted by the others you'll want to get a non-Dell Windows copy. A free alternative for just browsing is a Linux distribution including Ubuntu or Mint - Linux likes Intel IGPs.
another thing also is that I don't think that win 7 will be getting any new service packs . you might be able to manually update it from Microsoft via downloading the security updates I just think that the Automatic updates don't work.
