Does the MGADiag tool install WGA? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the MGADiag tool install WGA? Working on a friend’s laptop top that has Win7 installed and activated, but hasn’t been updated. Told him I’d check to see if it could be updated, but he needed to stop pounding on the keys & track pad when it acted up! VBG!

  • Set a System Restore point to ensure recovery to a known state.  Visiting the Genuine Windows Validation site and running 'Validation' does install WGA but I don't think the MGA tool does.  It just provides data.  The validation site is at (but don't run it if you have reservations)

  • Now you see why I kept complaining about the report being chopped.

    The last line makes no sense.

     SLIC HPQOEM SLIC-MPC

    The SLIC table is in the BIOS meaning a Hewlet Packard table in a Dell BIOS.  What may be going on is an old hack job on Vista partially repaired by reinstalling an OEM System Builder copy of Windows 7.  If this was in a shop for repairs go back and talk to the tech.  If the friend did this, know that this is not the way to upgrade a Vista computer to Windows 7.  End users are not granted rights to install OEM software by the system builder license.  OEM SB licenses only grant that right to parties installing the software on a computer for sale to a third party.  Somebody needs to quit cutting corners with licensed software.

    I would restore the original Vista and then purchase either a retail upgrade or retail full license copy of Windows 7 and do the job right.  Somebody tried to turn Vista Home Premium into Windows 7 Ultimate with some shortcuts.

    The other problem is that the copy of Office is not valid either.

    Office Status: 103 Blocked VLK

    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - 103 Blocked VLK

    That is an enterprise volume license copy using an abused key now blocked by Microsoft.

    I recommend you return the Dell to the friend and walk away.

  • Please post the entire report.  Editing is unneccessary since the report masks sufficiently on its own.

  • Sorry, haven’t installed MGADiag yet, don’t want to deal with possible WGA issues like false warnings. Info gleaned from WinKeyFinder. It shows the Exdended PID and the Activation ID if that helps. Machine is a Dell Inspiron 1721, running Win7 Ultimate.

  • It doesn't help.  Please observe announcement 1 at the top of this forum page.  There is information in various places in the report that is useful in determining genuineness and the causes of both false and positve results.  Repost another time when you are comfortable doing so.

    Hmm, fine but that didn't address my question... "Does the MGADiag tool install WGA?"

  • Thanks! When I ran it on my MSI GT 725 the resolve button (lower left side) is greyed out (my copy came straight from MS). As the Dell isn't mine I have to exercise caution.

    Just ran the tool:

  • What symptoms are you asking about?  You are not getting anything like a complete report and parts of what your are getting are goofy, such as 

    Windows Product ID: 00426-OEM-9179702-18687

    Windows Product ID Type: 0

    Windows License Type: Unknown 

    Compare that with some of the other reports in the other threads on this forum.  Also look at the other reports and see where your's is cutting off. 

    An OEM license should be Type 2, 8, or 3:

    Windows Product ID Type: 2
    Windows License Type: OEM SLP (the active key is the embedded self-activating key)

    Windows Product ID Type: 8
    Windows License Type: COA SLP (the active key is the one on the label on the computer case)

    Windows Product ID Type: 3
    Windows License Type: OEM System Builder (the active key is on the dvd case) 

    Your friend may not be using a copy of Windows that is valid for the make and model of the computer.  It appears to be a Dell manufactured on April 21, 2008

    <Date>20080421000000.000000+000</Date>

    meaning that an OEM SLP or OEM COA copy of Windows 7 is not valid since Windows 7 was not released to manufacturers until July 24, 2009, fifteen months later.  OEM SLP and COA copies are factory installed only, which is why such a copy would be invalid here.  It would have been copied from a later model and fudged onto the computer using an activation hack.  Only by seeing the complete report is it possible to identify the exploit.

    If it is an OEM System Builder copy then it can be valid on a refurbished computer. 

    There is enough of the report to be very suspicious but the rest is needed to be certain.  I suspect a particularly dreadful job of hacking.  Your friend should restore the original copy of Vista or purchase a retail full license copy of Windows 7.

  • Why am I not surprised? Best bet is to ditch the thing and buy something decent (LOL). I'll suggest that to him and his 2nd best option, a complete format and installing full retail Win7 (reinstalling Vista plus upgrade may still cause unnecessary issues).

     

    Thanks!

    Monday, May 2, 2011 8:50 PM
  • (reinstalling Vista plus upgrade may still cause unnecessary issues)

    Why? You don't have to use an upgrade install with an upgrade license. Restore Vista and then upgrade to Windows 7 with a custom install. The most you get is a windows.old folder which you can delete. Remember Windows 7 is installed by image copying and not by file copying like XP. That means all the old fears of code snips left behind don't happen because an image copy guarantees the desired code or zeroes in all bytes in all sectors used for the OS. The reason for using a full license would be if the Dell is going to be replaced soon with a bare bones computer and Windows 7 was going to be transferred. Since the Dell copy of Vista is not transferrable a full license copy of Windows 7 would be needed for the transfer. Otherwise save $100.
