sudden 'geographically blocked pid' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using this copy of windows XP pro for almost 2 years without a problem. However, on Sunday afternoon I got a black screen and now I cant pass a validation test. I've got the original holographic CD and CoA and, as far as I know, this is the only PC it's installed on. Here's the results from the diagnostic tool;

  • Hello Phillk,

    OK, let's examine your materials.

    I am going on the assumption that you have a CoA for XP Pro.  If so, please visually check your CoA and compare the Product Key (PK) on the CoA with the last three sets shown by the mgadiag report, 2487J-KWKMF-RPWBY.  Is your CoA showing the same or different last three?  Note:  DO NOT post the full PK printed on your CoA.

    If the partial product key reported above *****-*****-2487J-KWKMF-RPWBY is not the one printed on your CoA, first try the PK Updater utility here:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668

    If the PK Updater cannot fix the issue, next please closely examine the CD that came with your purchase:

    1.  Does the CD read "For distribution with a new PC only" in the upper left?  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 in two sections.  Please post the text of the second section of the file.

  • Thanks for the reply. When I try to use the tool, I get 'The product key entered is not valid for this system. Please check it for typing errors and try again'.

    The last set numbers of the key on my CoA are *****-*****-49D7H-3W897-J6JJ8

    The CD doesn't have the message on the top left of the disc and I don't think it's a sticker (unless it is really well stuck). Here is the info from the file you asked for;

    [Pid]
    ExtraData=796674736977656D7A622E385892A4
    Pid=55274270

  • Hello Phillk,

    Go to this page, http://www.microsoft.com/howtotell/listview.aspx?displaylang=en then click on the choices for Windows XP Pro, then click the three "purchase method" buttons to see the different types of CDs that could be the one you have.

    Post back and let us know.

  • Thanks again for the reply. The CD I have is called 'Wavy Edge Copper Hologram CD (released summer 2004)' and is the first CD on the list here; http://www.microsoft.com/howtotell/content.aspx?displaylang=en&pg=ar_cd_win

  • Hello Phillk,

    IMO, you should follow the prompts you are seeing from the WGA Notifications utility and choose to submit a piracy report and choose to submit your materials for evaluation as possible hi-grade/hi-quality counterfeits.

    From what you have posted, you have identified your CD as one that is supposed to be a retail CD, but this "retail" CD came with a CoA for an OEM licensing kit for XP, and this "retail" CD installed a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro.  The "retail" CD has a setupp.ini file that has data (Pid=55274270) to indicate that the contents of the CD are Volume Licensing bits.

    If you decide to submit the report and your materials, please keep us posted by coming back here when you get a response from Microsoft and telling us how it turned out.
