Join Date: Oct 2014 win7 pro 32 bit 16 posts Local Time: 17:39 Recovery Says Wrong Windows Version I have a bootable USB with Win7 Ult on it from which I recently installed Win7 Ult. So I know it's good. Now I get a machine - Win7 Ult - that keeps switching off, is unusable. This is a difference machine, okay? Quite Kosher. Has an activated key. I try to repair it using the Win7 Ult install disk which searches for installed Windows, finds it, and then declares it can't help because wrong version of Windows! I have another USB sold to me as a 'repair' usb for any version of windows. That does the same thing. Don't have the original install disks for the broken machine in question so I can't go back to them. Any clues what might be going on?
