  • Hello Everyone,

    I have a hp dv6910us laptop and recently the hard disk crashed. I got a new Hard disk and installed Windows Vista Home Premium. I am trying to activate the windows installation with the OEM product key but it says the product key is invalid. How should I get the Windows Installation activated. Here is my MGADiag report.

    "Windows License Type: Retail"

    It appears that you reinstalled using Retail software instead of the OEM recovery software included with your PC ( usually on a Recovery partition on the PC's hard drive.)

     

     My belief is that Retail software won't accept an OEM product key.  However, I also seem to remember some posters saying they have been able to get it to work.  My suspicion is that using an OEM key in Retail software isn't specifically designed to work, but sometimes does...but in your case, it didn't.

     

     The thing that I am sure will fix your issue is to reinstall using the OEM recovery software that came with the PC,  If when you installed using the retail software, you overwrote the recovery partition, then you can get replacement software from the PC's manufacturer.

     

    Thank you,

    The problem with the current Key is that it's the Default Key - which cannot be activated.
     
    What media did you use for the reinstall? Retail Software DOES accept OEM Keys (done it myself a few times), although it can be picky (best to use an Full Ultimate disk rather than mess about with images)
     
    Please let us know the last 5 characters of the Key you are attempting to input - it's possibly the OEM_SLP Key form your manufacturer, rather than the OEM_COA Key that's needed, if you retrieved the Key using Magical JellyBean or Belarc, or the like.
     
    Please check the COA sticker on the case of your machine - if it's readable, then try using that Key instead of the one you have been attempting to use, using either the Change Product Key link on the System Properties page, or the SLUI 3 procedure.
    Note that you will probably have to activate the proper key by telephone.

  • Thankx Darin and Noel,

    Yes I am using a retail version of Windows. When my hard disk crashed I also lost the windows recovery partition. During the installation I tried to use the key provided on the COA sticker and the installation did not accept the key. I anyway installed it using the default key and after installation tried to change the product key to the one on the COA sticker. It always says that the key is invalid. I tried to get the key activated via phone and was told that since this key was given by HP and I had changed the default configuration I will need to get a different key from them. I thought that the product key should work fine on a retail version of Windows. any help will be appreciated.

     

    Thankx,

    For what version and edition of Windows is the COA sticker?
    The motherboard appears to be a valid one for a Vista install - but unless the Sticker states Home Premium, it's not valid for this install.
    How are you trying to change the Key?
    First option is to use the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System Properties page.
    Second option is to use the SLUI 3 command from either the Search box or a CMD prompt.
    Third option is to rebuild the Licensing store, and then do either of the above (in case the store is broken) - instructions can follow if you need them.

    I forgot to mention - you will need to activate by phone for all options!
