Windows 7 Professional activation issue

2018-01-05, 16:20 PM

I have a MT-M0958 ThinkCentre with Windows 7 Professional installed. All of a sudden it started popping up a window saying the I wasn't running a genuine copy of Windows. The computer originally purchased with Windows 7 Professional, but it also has a Windows 8 license for it. When I try to activate I get an error code 0xC004F063. When I select more information on the error code I get the following message. The Software Licensing Service reported that the BIOS is missing a required license. I cna't get Lenovo to support me because the computer is out of warranty. Please HELP!

Search also the Windows 7 forum under 'Software and OS' on the right side -- the problem/solution doesn't need to be ThinkCentre only. 

I do not work for Lenovo. I do not respond to Private Messages for help, your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where the information exchange may help others. If I helped you, click the 'Thumbs up' button, if solved, the 'Accept as solution'.
