    Hi!

    Windows 7 has suddently started to tell me its not genuine.

    Some background information. I was disappointed with the Windows installation that came with my Zenbook, and installed Windows from scratch. I downloaded OS from Microsoft's own site, had some problems installing it from USB (had to manually load USB 3 drivers), but eventually it worked. Of course, I used the serial number from the preinstalled Windows. Everything worked fine for about a month.

    Using online advice, I have found the error code 0xC004F063.

    Is there anything I can do? Have tried calling Microsoft, but the phone menu gives me no option to ask the kind of question I need to ask without having to pay money for the support.

    Thankful for any advice! /Andreas

    I've had that issue on other windows 7 machines, but never on my zenbook. I, like you, have a fresh install of win 7 on my UX31 but haven't received that message. Doe it ever ask you for a different serial number?

    Yeah, it is possible to enter a different serial number if I try to register windows through the system window on the control panel.
