Can you be clearer on the status and install history of the pc you have 'started up'? ie is this one of the 'wiped' pcs that you have reinstalled a copy of W7 on?
If so, what type of W7 is it? Retail, OEM, Enterprise, Upgrade? and do you have a product key (and what type of key is it - Upgrade, VLK, Retail etc etc)
Not sure what you mean by 'unverified'? Do you mean it won't activate?
I don't see how your reference to a company and lots of other computers that have been wiped and given away is relevant? If they've been wiped then there won't be an op sys on the harddrive. - correct me if I've misunderstood.
