I just finished cloning a 1tb hard drive onto a 2 disc (500gb each) RAID 0 array using partition wizard. When attempting to boot to the new RAID 0 with the old disc removed from the system, I get a light blue screen indicating windows 7 is not genuine and I cannot get to my desktop. however, if I leave the old disc installed and then boot to the RAID 0, it works fine and takes me into my desktop as though nothing is wrong. I checked and found Windows to be activated and apparently fine.
I read that this might be related to the Intel storage controller driver being corrupted, so I reinstalled it to the RAID 0, but no joy. Besides, it doesn't seem to be the likely problem as the RAID 0 array performs amazingly well as long as the old drive is attached to the system.
The following post was very informative--social.microsoft.com/forums/sv/genuinewindows7/thread/dea5ae1e-e7dc-4b1e-bce5-15c67b05124a and I began to follow it's advice, but when I launched slui.exe 3 it simply took my product key and successfully activated, but when I attempted to reboot with the old drive removed, no joy. I was never given the opportunity to follow the remaining instructions concerning slui.exe 4 and speaking to a live activation rep.
I was considering following the instructions to recreate the licensing store, but I got cold feet and decided to post here first.
I posted my MGAdiag report (from the RAID 0) at the following link and was told it is Genuine and Activated as I suspected: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/sv/genuinewindows7/thread/b6e55cde-b40a-4087-9168-abb44930a5f2?prof=required
Oddly I successfully performed this process in the same manner only two weeks ago on a nearly identical system. Weird that it went off without a hitch then, but now I'm stuck.
