  • Question

  • Recently a colleagues computer was determined to have a non genuine version of Win 7 on it (00371-220 type PID)

    As this was installed by our previous IT provider, I became concerned my machine also may not be genuine.

    I have run the online tool and it says mine is genuine (00371-222), but the 00371-220 type on my colleagues would have also been considered genuine just an abused licence system, that Microsoft has closed (rightly so, but at one stage it would have been considered genuine).

    How can I verify that the result online isn't just good for now and pulls the same not genuine s**t in 3 months time?

    Does Microsoft warrant the result of the WGA tool? How can I be sure that my PID is from an appropriate licence version (not MSDN or some such)?

  • The -222- portion of your Product Key indicates that it is a Not-For-Resale MSDN version.  

    In order to get an MSDN subscription, you need to sign agreements with Microsoft.  Then they allow you access to keys that are to be used ONLY for the purpose for which they were intended.  When those keys are leaked and "activated" enough times, Microsoft will ban them from further use.  That might take over a year before a particular one is banned.  But the effect is the same - the counterfeit installation is then flagged as non-genuine.

    For more information see the following thread:

    If you are not an MSDN subscriber, you will need to purchase a genuine copy of Windows 7, reformat and reinstall.  Be sure to backup your data first.

  • MGA Diagnostic Report:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop -http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.

    One Issue Per Thread:

    Most Activation and Validation issues look the same, on the surface, but can have many different causes and fixes. This is why we ask for a diagnostic report and this is also why we ask that you create your own thread for your issue (in other words, don't post your issue in another person's thread). 

    It just becomes too complicated to try to troubleshoot multiple different issues in the same thread.

    New to the Forums?

    Note that if you are new to these forums, you may find that you are unable to post due to a restriction on the inclusion of links and pictures.
    Simply delete the only lines that contain links -  this will allow the remainder of the report to upload (and those lines are not generally critical to the report anyhow)

  • Hi Kamin.

    Thanks for this guide. Had me worried I have overrun someone else's thread for a few minutes.

    I guess the big issue here is I have probably 40-50 computers that would need checking to verify if they are genuine/ licensed correctly, and I dont want to do a massive dump on helpful people like yourself on this forum.

    Is there a better way for me to identify them (manual with all the variant numbers and what type of licencing they refer to, etc), or someone I should contact directly at microsoft to get them all done in a batch?

    I appreciate your help.

  • Hi Kamin.

    Thanks. Is there a listing of what codes mean what (i.e. 220 and 222 are MSDN).

    This would help me go through each computer and identify which ones need replacing and how many we should be claiming back from our previous IT guy.

    Is it worthwhile reporting him to Microsoft? Would they do anything about it?

    Cheers Again,

    KITNDAVJ

  • Not a specific list of all the codes, but the link I provided in my reply has a list of what are surely MSDN installs.
