  • Your MGA report shows a Volume License version of Windows XP Professional installed with a non-genuine Product Key. It appears you were sold a counterfeit copy or copies of Windows XP. 

    In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on your options which include how to acquire a WGA Kit.

  • JokerNfear,

     

    Right now, your computer has a Volume Licensing (VL) edition of XP Pro installed (Line 11), and that installation was done with an invalid Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are invalidated by Microsoft at the report of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, or misused.  Also, MS may have invalidated the key if it was generated by a non-MS Key Generator program, which seem to be your situation.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for XP are upgrade licenses only and can never be used as the orginal or base license for a computer.

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on the computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

    The next step in the process is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticty (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or some other version?

    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.

    Not sure what to look for?  Click here:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    You wrote that you received a genuine hologrammed Microsoft CD with your purchase.  If this is a genuine CD, that's a good thing.  Curiously, if you received a nongenuine CD that can be classified by Microsoft as a high quality counterfeit, that's just as good a thing and maybe better!

     

    Please closely examine the CD that came with your purchase.

     

    If it a hologrammed CD that has a large area of green or red silk screening in the upper right, please have a look at this web page http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/windows/quiz_vol.aspx?displaylang=en&acq=4 and then report back to us.

     

    If it is a hologrammed CD that has no colorful silk screening, please have a look at this web page http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/windows/ and under "Select your purchase method" choose one of two choices on the left, and then follow along until you get to your CD, the report back to us.

     

    If it is a hologrammed CD, you can also have a look at the counterfeit samples page by starting here http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/content.aspx?displaylang=en&pg=counterfeit and then choosing the Counterfeit Gallery, and then choosing the Windows OS tab then looking at the various levels of counterfeit CDs.

     

    Lastly, let us know these two things:

     

    1.  Is the hologram of the CD embedded within the plastic of the CD, or is it a very thin label affixed to the top surface of the CD?

     

    2.  Pop the CD into a computer and navigate to the setupp.ini file within the \i386 folder.  This is a small file with several lines of text and numbers.  Please post the text on the last line of the file.

  • Joker,

     

    Your software is non-genuine as Dan and Carey indicated. You can submit a piracy report and may qualify for free software. Give all the information when filling out the report and follow the instructions Microsoft provides. Take care.

    While it is not necessarily against forum policy to do so, we CANNOT determine the "Quality" level of non-Genuine submissions and cannot guarantee such a thing here on the forum. We have a 3rd party registered Cryptography lab evaluate EVERY (really!) submission for the High-Quality Counterfeit replacement program - as they have a pre-determined subset of items they look for.

     

    I know you were looking for another answer, but unfortunately that is the only one I can provide for you at this time Sad.

  • JokerNfear,

     

    I'm not exactly sure what kind of CD you have.  You wrote that the green silk screened area has wording to the effect of "for OEM distribution" and the contents of the setupp.ini file indicate that this is a type of OEM CD.

     

    Did you use this exact CD to do the installation of XP that generated the mgadiag report that you posted in this thread?
