 The Get Genuine Kit

The Get Genuine Kit helps your customers install genuine Windows software on their existing PCs. 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 license to a PC when the customer has acquired non-genuine Windows software.

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

Background

Order Process

The Get Genuine Kit is available worldwide by ordering through a Microsoft Authorized 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

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

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

Terms and Conditions

  • The license 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 License—The license 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 legalize Windows software on an existing PC.
