  • Brian,


    Please run the MGA Diagnostic tool and post your results back in this thread. This will help us analyze your situation. Technically Activation doesn't fall under the WGA Forum but I will try and get you pointed in the right directions.


    Download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click

    the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

    Step 2 is tell us about the COA. Tell us:

    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?
    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?
    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?
    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.
    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.


    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that

    can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.


    Thank you,


    Stephen Holm, MS
