Recently my laptop's windows 7 ultimate OS said that this copy of of windows is not genuine, so I tried to go online to resolve it.
When I went to the website they told me to go to (http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/DownloadValidationSupport.aspx?displaylang=en&Error=52&sGuid=0491ab8d-4e8e-45ce-8fab-f03615d59081&OSV=6.1.7600.2.00010100.0.0.001.00.1033&GenuineInfo=C004F063&ls=3), I downloaded the update and after it finished I clicked "continue" but it kept telling me to wait for it to finish installing, even though it has already finished. So, no help there.
When I tried to type in the activation code that came with the computer, it said that it doesn't work with my version of Windows 7 (funny thing is, my computer came with a disc labeled "Windows 7 Professional" yet after I installed it to my computer, it shows up as Windows 7 ULTIMATE).
When I used a program to find my true activation code, error code 0xC004F063 came up. I read somewhere that to fix that, I have to downgrade back to my previous version of Windows, which is XP, and re-upgrade back to Windows 7. I tried to do that but i never got past the 2nd step, which told me to insert the Windows 7 disc into my drive and restart the computer. The Install Windows window never came up after restarting.
Can someone please tell me how to solve error code 0xC004F063? I think that's the root of all my problems, since I don't think any product key will work due to that error code. And please do NOT tell me to contact Microsoft support or anything like that because I do not have the time or patience to go through those steps, so please just tell me directly how to solve it.
