Genuine vista fails validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.
    I installed a genuine copy of windows Vista Ultimate 64bit, entered product key and activation went fine.
    Unfortunately when i run the wga validation tool it fails with the message..............................

    Windows must be activated before validation can determine if this copy of Windows is genuine.

    Error code is [0xC004C4A6]

    I have checked system properties and it says windows is activated.
    So i went through the phone activation process again and it worked without a problem.
    Tried validation and again it failed with the above message.
    The only changes made to my system since vista install was a bios update.

    Here are the results of the wga diagnostic tool.........................................
