  • Like many people lately, I have had this problem. After visiting the validation site, it appears to finally be fixed, but I'm posting my latest diagnostic in case there's a problem I didn't notice or if the problem reoccurs and I need to come back on in the future.

    Hi again :)
    It looks like the validation problem is fixed, and you're good to go.
    As I mentioned earlier though, the actual legal status of your system is in question due to having a COA SLP license on a Retail motherboard. If you had the machine repaired under warranty by the manufacturer, then the system is legal. If that's not the case, but you're happy with the situation then fine, I doubt MS is going to knock on your door anytime soon - but if you paid good money for what you thought was a genuine, legal system, then you should consider talking to your supplier about their methods.

  • I'm confused about the difference between the OEM and COA license, I'm not familiar with product keys and all that.

     

    And my PC wasn't repaired under warranty, the warranty had expired and I had to buy the parts and fix it myself. The store I bought the parts from is perfectly legitimate, to my knowledge.

    Not unusual to be confused about the different types of License :)
     
    If I've got it right (and hopefully Darin will correct me on Monday, if not) the following is a pretty complete listing of the types of license Key found in the MGADiag reports
     
    1) OEM SLP - this is the key that is used by big-name manufacturers when they install Windows on your machine before it leaves the factory. It's valid for any machine with the appropriate BIOS instructions, which are contained in a chip on the motherboard.
    2) COA SLP - this is the key that is on your COA sticker - it's valid ONLY for that one machine, and is for use primarily when something prevents the BIOS and the OS talking to each other - either because the BIOS has been updated with a version that doesn't contain the proper instructions, or because the motherboard is replaced under warranty with a different one.
    3) OEM NSLP - this is a special form of license for upgrading systems  (usually the free upgrade from Vista to Win 7) that's only available to the big-name manufacturers.
    3) OEM System Builder - this is the type of key that is used by the corner-shop system builder and repair store. Again, it's a Key that should be on a COA Sticker on the case of the machine it's installed on. It's also available to the general public, providing that it's bought with a 'qualifying' piece of hardware.
    4)Retail  - This is the sort of License that most end-users would/should buy, and is the type of license that ALL upgrades (other than OEM NSLP)
    5) Volume - this is available only to organisations buying a large number (well, 5 or more) of copies of windows - and is by definition both Retail, and Upgrade,
     
    All OEM Licenses are valid only on the machine on which they were first installed, while retail licenses can be moved from machine to machine providing they are only installed one at a time. (i.e. you can't dual-boot two instances of the same license on the same machine, or use one copy on one machine, and another in a Virtual or another real machine).
    Microsoft contradicts itself in places, but the general advice is that MS considers a change of motherboard to be the same as moving the installation to another PC, unless the change is done under warranty by the manufacturer of the machine. This means if  the end-user swaps out a motherboard for whatever reason, an OEM License will become invalid (even if all technical tests still show it as valid).
    OEM Licenses have one other drawback for the end-user - official support for the end-user is through the manufacturer concerned, not MS. Therefore if the end-user buys an OEM license from a store, with their new mouse, and installs it, then are not entitled to any support from MS without paying for it (the web content and forums are a FOC service outside this restriction, as are certain other services), and are on their own. A Retail license entitles the purchaser to a certain number of free support incidents (normally charged for at fairly horrendous rates) in a certain period of time.
     
    HTH - if you're still confused, ask away, and I'll try and expand on specific points if I can.

  • I think I get it now. It's not showing as invalid any more, and I know my copy of Vista is genuine, and that's good enough. Thank you for your help.
