Validating my OEM copy of Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone. I hope you can help me with a doubt I haven't been able to resolve in a proper way. I have Dell Inspiron N4010, which came with ane OEM copy of Windows 7 Home Premium. For a while, I tried Windows 8 Release Preview (made a clean install), but since I can't afford the license, I decided to reinstall my OEM copy of windows 7.

    My RECOVERY partition was intact (my laptop did not include any windows DVD), so I was able to install Windows 7 in the original setting of my laptop. The thing is, although the software is Activated since the installation, I think the Validation has not occured because in the Properties of My Computer appears the "Ask for original microsoft software" logo.

    In the WGA report I noticed that the Key is not the same that appears in my COA. So I tried to change it manually (using commands), but it was not accepted as a valid key. My question is: since I installed the very same copy that my laptop had originally installed, ¿can I validate my copy properly?

    Thanks in advance. Here is the WGA report:

  • Computers that come pre-installed with Windows from large manufacturers usually come with two Product Keys.

     

    OEM SLP: This is the key that came in Windows (from the factory). It works by connecting to a BIOS flag (the SLIC table) found only on  computers from that Manufacturer. It also checks for the existence of proper matching licenses in the OS itself. Once it sees both, it self-activates every time the machine is rebooted.

     

    COA SLP: This is the key seen on the sticker located on the side, bottom or in the battery compartment of your machine. This key is for use if the OEM SLP self-activation stops working for whatever reason.

    Your COA Key should work - but it needs care in reading, and MUST be for the same edition of Windows as is installed.

     0xC004F050 usually means that you've misread a character - either C/G/6 or B/8 or Y/V are the most common, an O/0 is almost always a Q

     

    Note that the following characters cannot be used - A E I L N O S U Z 1 0 - so don't bother trying unless you like the noise it makes :)

  • Noel,

    Thank you very much for your answer. Just as you suggested, I was misreading a letter G as a 6. With the right Key I was able to do the change and it activated correctly. Nevertheless, in the Properties of My Computer the "Ask for original microsoft software" logo is still visible. Also, the MGA Tool still says "Validation Code: 0".

    Does this mean anything? Is my Windows not fully validated, in some way?

    Thanks again for your help.

  • Please post the new MGADiag report.

    Both the status indicators you mention are perfectly normal in a genuine system.
