Norton Ghost 15 to copy to new SSD for Windows 7 got This Copy of Windows is not Genuine - Solved
As stated in the title, I Used Norton Ghost 15 to copy to new SSD for Windows 7 got blue screen saying Windows not Genuine.
I did have both partitions copyed, the hidden 100mb partition and the C drive, but the drive letters were wrong, the hidden 100mb partition got the C drive letter and the C drive got a drive letter of K.
How I solved it:
Boot into safe mode, you get a black screen, hit ctrl-alt-delete and you get task manager. Run regedit as an admistratior.. go into
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices. Scroll down to \DosDevices\C: and you will see all your mounted drive letters starting with \DosDevices\C:, \DosDevices\D:, \DosDevices\E: etc. You cannot edit the value, but you can delete them.
Highlight all of them and delete them. You can export them to a registry file before you delete if you are not comfortable which can be restored, but not necessary though. Then reboot windows 7. It well correctly regenerate drive letters for most drives, including the all important C drive.
Windows 7 will reboot with a black windows is not genuine screen, but will then go to your welcome screen and your desktop.
You can change any incorrect drive letters at this point using Windows disk management. One more caveat, if you get a missing bootmgr screen you can use system repair from your windows 7 cd to correct that. I hope this helps people. I would also suggest deleting the drive letter which will be assigned to the 100 mb hidden partition which you can do in disk management.
