Ubuntu is free and does not have "genuine" and "not genuine" versions.

How does this manifest itself? Is it working or not?

Hello,

I assume that with "genuine" you mean a supported version of Ubuntu, because Ubuntu 9 series have already reached EOL (End Of Life) and not supported anymore.

Better for you would be to download and do a fresh install of a newer and supported version.

Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS has extended support until April 2017.

Official download links can be found here:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/

PC (Intel x86) desktop CD = 32bit version
64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop CD = 64bit version

Installation instructions can be found here:
