Applying the Windows 7 Upgrade Certificate of Authenticity Label to Your Computer

  • PrintPrint
Your Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade kit from HP comes with a Certificate of Authenticity label. This label provides important proof of purchase and product validation information. It needs to be with the computer that is upgraded to Windows 7. Remove the Certificate of Authenticity label from the upgrade packaging and apply it to your computer.
When removing the Certificate of Authenticity label from the packaging, gently pull down and away from the top middle of the label. Do not peel from the corners as doing so might tear the label.
