WGA Validated, Unable to Activate Windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased this machine second-hand from a friend about a year ago who built it, and I suspect that my OS may not be geniune.

     

    I have validated my copy of Vista, but am unabl to activate it (3 days remaining). When I attempt to activate I get "The Windows Vista Ultimate product key you typed is invalid for activation" and I have the options to Buy a new product key, Type a different product key, or Contact Microsoft. When I click "Buy a new product key online" I am taken to https://om.one.microsoft.com/opa/Validation.aspx?StoreID=5fd1d1f8-07b1-4716-bac1-a7301cb56e48&LocaleCode=en-us. After I enter the requested information I get "Error Code: 1067."

     

    How do I proceed? How can I determine if my OS is illegal? If it is indeed illegal, is it possible for me to just purchase a product key without downloading the entire OS (which is pointless being that I already have installed and probably don't have enough disk space)?

  • It appears your friend installed Windows Vista using a proprietary disc from a major computer manufacturer.  You'll never be able to activate because it can only be installed on the computer the disc originally came with.  You'll need to purchase a new "full version" edition of Windows Vista and perform a "clean install".

  • thegreedyhand,

     

      Before you buy a full version of Vista, check you computer's side and bottom for a sticker (called a COA Sticker) that has a Product Key on it. If you find the sticker and the sticker says the key is for Vista, go into Vista and change the product key to the key on the sticker and Activate by Phone (it will not activate over the internet).

     

      If it Activates without error, then go to http://microsoft.com/genuine and Validate Windows. If it Validates as Genuine then you are good to go.

     

      If there is no sticker or if it fails to Activate or Validate, then follow Carey's advise.

     

    Thank you,

  • Did your friend give you the Windows Vista installation DVD?  Is so, what is the wording on the disc?

  • He didn't and says he's now unable to find it or anything that came with it which is why I'm suspicious

  • Thank you for your help. Obviously not what I wanted to hear, but at least I now know where to go from here. Thanks again.
