 The Get Genuine Kit

The Get Genuine Kit helps your customers install genuine Windows software on their existing computers. It provides a simple solution to help your customers get legal, deepen your customer relationship and build your reputation as a trusted advisor. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Problem: How to deliver a genuine Windows operating system licence to a computer when the customer has acquired non-genuine Windows software.

The Solution: The Get Genuine Kit (GGK) offers a full Windows operating system licence to customers who need a compliance solution for existing PCs. Get Genuine Kit licences are available for Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Professional.

Background

Order Process

The Get Genuine Kit is available worldwide by ordering through a Microsoft Authorised OEM Distributor. The Get Genuine Kit provides the customer with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) that must be affixed to the PC. Media is included with each Get Genuine Kit purchase, and comes in a DVD-style case with one COA.

Order Quantity

Licence packs come only in a quantity of one for Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Professional.

A one-licence pack contains the Service Provider Licence Agreement, Supplemental End User Licence Terms, media (edge-to-edge hologram DVD), COA label and a getting started guide.

Terms and Conditions

  • The licence is not transferable.
  • The COA must be affixed to the PC in a visible place.
  • Downgrade rights are not available.

Software Assurance

Software Assurance can be purchased within 90 days of purchasing the Get Genuine Kit.

Support

Support is provided by Microsoft, per the support life-cycle policy. This differs from OEM System Builder software, which the PC manufacturer supports.

Other Facts

  • Non-Transferable Licence—The licence is not transferable to another PC.
  • New vs. Existing PC Use—The Get Genuine Kit can never be used on a new PC. It can be used only to legalise Windows software on an existing PC.
