Classmate Image Not Genuine
We have had nonstop issues with the image for our Classmate this year. We have the classmate from 2009.
Originally, when we received our key at kickoff it was an E11 key (the wrong one), so we swapped it out for an E09 key from another team who needed an E11 key. When that key didn't work, another team duplicated the E11 key to a new USB drive. This key worked fine insomuch as getting the computer up and running, however, the computer keeps on insisting that the copy of Windows is not Genuine.
This doesn't stop our computer from functioning for the time being, but it should stop working in about another month (I think?) and I don't want to be left in a situation without a driver's station.
Every time that we boot up the computer, it gives a message requesting that we "Get Genuine Now!" and lets us either try to validate it online or wait until later. Earlier it would have us go through some kind of wizard (while still in a Windows Explorer window) before giving us an error (I never wrote it down, sorry). Now if we try to validate online, we get directed to an internet browser window that requests that we download something so that Windows can verify whether our computer is Genuine or not. After running this program it says that we need to purchase a new key to be Genuine. This costs around $200, which is money that our team can't afford to spend unnecessarily.
Any help would be appreciated.
