Windows 7 Professional Deactivation COA SLP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have seen similar issues reported here but not been able to glean enough information to help me resolve my own problems, hoping to get some insights and get this cleared up for my user ASAP.

    The machine seems to have stopped recognizing the activation out of the blue. The only update around the time of deactivation was to the Windows AV definitions (KB915597, 1.293.949.0). After attempting to reactivate with the license code on the machine and failing, I reached out to Microsoft and then at their recommendation HP to see if anyone could help. HP recommended I reinstall Windows on the machine, which I would really like to avoid doing if at all possible.

    Below is the MGADIAG report. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • With internet access on the system, from an elevated Command Prompt, run the following:

    slmgr.vbs -ato

    It will either be successful or it will show to you a message with a command to run. If it is not successful, post the results here and we can see what it could be.

  • Hi Tripredacus,

    I ran command and received a an error 0xC004C003 The activation server determined the specified product key is blocked.

    Anything I can do here? I'm not sure what would've caused this key to be suddenly blocked from my end.

  • Product key on the COA should work, but there are some reasons why it wouldn't.

    Did you record what the active product key was before putting in the one from the COA? That original key that HP put into the OS should be the one in there, and not the one from the COA.

    The things that you can do at this point:

    1. Put back in the original key that was in the OS before, reboot, run slmgr -ato again and if it fails, post error code and new MGADiag report.

    2. Run slui 4 and go through telephone activation using the product key on the COA.

  • The Product Key has been blocked by Microsoft - probably because of too many activations on too many machines.

    Is this the Key on the COA sticker on the machines case?? - if not, then change the Key to that, and all should be well.

  • Hi @Tripredacus,

    Thanks for your response. Attempting to work through your steps, I don't believe I have the original key recorded as it was injected directly from the BIOS- if this is the case, to restore the machine is it possible that I will have to reinstall Windows to have it auto activate? I ask this because inputting the COA key via telephone resulted in the same error. I did this after running slui 4 in the elevated prompt.

    Thanks again.

  • Hey Noel,

    Thank you for your response/time. I had spoken with Microsoft about the issue and they advised me to reach out to the manufacturer saying that it wasn't blocked by them. Is there a line in the MGADiag you don't mind showing me that determines where the block is coming from?

    BTW, I did attempt to activate with the COA and had no luck.

    Thanks again.

  • There are two crucial lines in the report...

    Cached Online Validation Code: 0xc004c4a2

    and

    Notification Reason: 0xC004F200 (non-genuine).

    Unfortunately, neither give a reason as such -

    The first simply means that the Key is blocked - "

    Genuine Validation determined the product key has been blocked.

    The second means that it is 'not genuine'  - usually because of the first.

    MS are the only people with authorisation to block a Key - so they are the ones who will if necessary have to issue a replacement Key (Keys cannot be 'un-blocked', for security reasons)

    This isn't the case. Windows 7 does not use a product key in the BIOS. HP puts their key into the OS, which should show up in either of the partials in the MGADiag report. The partials in your paste above have the wrong key. I will leave it to Noel to determine whether or not it is proper to post what that key is. I believe technically it is not supposed to be public record, however it was leaked years ago and is easily found online.

    If you reinstall, make sure to use the HP branded recovery DVD. It should not ask for a product key and should automatically activate.

    In a case where the COA key is blocked, there is nothing that can be done unfortunately. Now, that COA is only the proof of license.

  • The OEM_SLP Keys are considered public domain- so there's no problem with posting them.

    It may be worth a try to use it - although I suspect that it will fail because the proper licenses aren't present in the OS..

    The HP Key for Win 7 Pro is

    74T2M-DKDBC-788W3-H689G-6P6GT

    If you change the Key to that, then reboot, it should automatically activate (but I suspect that it will fail)

    If you then run a new MGADiag report it may tell us a little more.

    olmboyo

    Can you check that the COA sticker on the case is actually for Windows 7 Professional?

  • Thanks for that info. The documentation doesn't make it entirely clear what domain those keys are in, other than being included with NDA materials, the pages with the keys themselves are not marked as such.

    Regarding this particular topic, it should "activate" properly as the marker is present and the BIOS information is valid.

  • Although the error codes are similar, the cause is NOT that referred to in that article, which is about KMS Volume Activation failures, rather than OEM or COA SLP activation.

  • The BIOS information may well be correct - but the necessary licences are only present in the OS when it was installed using the manufacturer's Recovery media (or from the master copy in their plant)
