    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
    RAM 2GB
    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).
