@Akki11 

So, HOW do you actually know it is pirated?

I can't tell you your friend is wrong -- as I have not tried that method -- but unless your or someone else forced the installation of a pirated version of Windows onto your PC, the original OEM version is legitimate.

 

So, I would not trust what some Python routine claims.

 

You can check your version of Windows as follows:  https://www.auslogics.com/en/articles/check-windows-version-easily-and-quickly/
