Windows Validation Problem. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are a computer repair shop. Many times, we have our customers bringing their computer with a valid sticker but not the original media installion CD. To fix their problems, we sometimes use our own media and use Repair Mode. Recently we experienced a validation problem after running repair mode - the explanation seems to be that our media does not match the customer's original media and running Repair Mode with our media changes "something" hence causing the Validation problem. Short to unrealistically requiring all of customers to bring their original media, is there a better solution or workaround? Thanks for your help.
