    SOURCE: can i install windows XP over windows 7?

    You can but its not straight forward, your laptop probably came with a SATA connection for your hard drive, XP doesn't recognise this. It doesn't have the correct drivers.

    You'll have to build a special installation disc, using a free programme called NLITE, download from

    You then have to get a copy of XP, with licence, also download all the drivers you need. If you can't get them from emachines you'll have to google for them.

    Do the research, build the disk, then before you install. Make sure you've copied all the data from your laptop so you can reinstall win7 if the XP-eriment goes wrong.

    SOURCE: windows 7 not genuine, copy

    The different ways to find out whether Windows 7 is genuine or not are as follows:
    Activate Windows dialog box
    Online verification
    Offline verification

    Activate Windows dialog box
    The user can see whether Windows 7 is genuine or not by activating Windows dialog. To do this, one needs to go to 'Start' and open the 'Search' box. Type 'Inactive Windows' in the box and see whether the version is genuine or not. If the operating system is a genuine one, a message will be displayed stating "Activation was successful" with a logo of Microsoft on the right side of the screen.

    Online verification
    The user can also verify that Windows 7 is genuine or not by going to the official website of Microsoft and using the validation mechanism that determines the genuineness of an operating system. One may have noticed while downloading updates for Windows that the system asks for a verification to continue the download process. The user should always connect to the web using Internet Explorer and download updates only from the official website.

    Offline verification
    Another way of checking whether Windows 7 is genuine or not is by going to the 'Control Panel' of the system where one can find an option of system and security. The user needs to click on 'System' and go down to the option of 'Windows Activation'. If Windows 7 is genuine; it will show that Windows is activated along with its product details. This box will also display Microsoft logo to confirm its genuineness.

    Unfortunately probably not.

    The backup drive many manufacturers use are for proprietary software, and drivers.

    If you have any install discs that came with your laptop that would be the way to go. If not you can always install windows *or another OS like linux) with a flash drive, link below.

    I wish you the best of luck and let me know if there is anything else I can answer for ya.
