Windows 7 Ultimate activation
when I tried to activate my windows 7 ultimate with the product key the following error occurred... Code: 0*C004F063 / Description: The software licensing service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license.

What can I do now?

If the solution is update BIOS then please tell me in detail how to update BIOS? Where do I find it? How do I install it?

Some info about my computer:
Flora PC Notebook
Pentiam (R) Dual Core CPU T 4500 @ 2.3GHz 2.3GHz
32 bit OS

BIOS Version Phoenix Technologies LTD 1.00.05 18-05-10

Looking forward to hear from you. Thank you.

It means you will have to activate by phone. (Hopefully, you have a legal version.)

Basically, you will have to generate a new product key, then call Microsoft Support at 866-740-1256. You will then have to type or say that product key, a group of six numbers at a time. If the automated system can't activate your key, you will get a live tech. Explain to them what is going on, and they will give you a new key.

WRITE IT DOWN!. It will be the key you will use the next time you activate Windows (for a reinstall, for example).
