Old thread...unfortunate that Kari didn't come back and update his comments
after MSFT changed the activation server circa 1607 which also introduced
the MSA requirements(in use prior to hardware change) for using the
Activation Troubleshooter.

Also, the OP left out one important bit of information
- OEM Win7HP or Retail Win7HP = o/s use for the Win10 free upgrade
- one transferable, the other not.

In the op's case, it would be a good idea regardless of the method to have
and use an MSA on the device prior to doing anything. Failure or success is
always possible, but less so if one follows MSFT's reason for using an MSA
for activation troubleshooting.
