Legit Vista - Cannot activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm running a Lenovo laptop with a legit copy of Vista Business. This product has already been activated once in the summer when I got this. However, now it won't even let me in anything else than the restricted mode where I can use the browser. Once I try logging in, the lower right corner says that my Vista is not legit. I already tried a few tricks I googled: I tried the cscript C:\Windows\... /ilc - thing and I also tried re-enabling the 30 days trial period. Cmd reacted to both of them as if they were succesfull, but still after two boots no progress was made.

    To be clear: I do not have access to Start menu. I also checked that the last 15 characters of my key and the ones in WGADiag are indeed the same.

    This is what my WGADiag is saying:

  • Hello TOmi,

    Please review the following Knowledge Base (KB) article and refer to the resolution portion of the webpage:

     KB931573 – You may be prompted to activate Windows Vista on a computer on which Windows Vista was already activated by a Volume License or OEM installation

     http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;931573 

     If the above does not resolve your issue, please follow the steps below. If the first set of steps does not resolve, move on to the next set of steps.

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step set #1

     

    1) Open Internet Explorer

    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3) Find the file cmd.exe

    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)

    6) Hit the Enter key

    7) Reboot 2 times

     

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step set #2

     

    1) Open Internet Browser

    2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.

    3) Find the file CMD.exe

    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)

    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing

    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar

    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32

    9) Type net start slsvc

    10) Reboot Twice

    11) Windows Vista may require you to enter a Product Key [use the Certificate of Authenticity (COA)] SLP Product Key found on the sticker on the side or bottom of your computer and activate. Use the Activate by Phone method outlined below.

    From the Desktop:

    a) If you have access to the Start button: Click the Start button, and type in "slui.exe 4" in the search field and then press the "Enter" key. This will bring up the Activate by Phone dialog window. Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.


    b) If you do not have access to the Start button: Reboot and login to Vista, a dialog window will come up. In that window, click the option "Access computer with reduced functionality". Once you do that, Internet Explorer or Firefox browser will open. In the address bar type "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" press enter, a new window will come up, type: slui 4 and hit enter and follow steps to Activate over the Phone.

  • After trying out solutions found in this forum, I now got rid of the problem only to face another one: Vista now prompts for the cd after the login by saying that "Begin the re-installation by inserting the Windows installation CD or DVD into the computer." (may not be how it's put in English - I have a Finnish copy of Vista. The title bar of the window says (in Finnish): "Windows must be re-installed for reactivation." The problem (as always with OEM) is that there is no CD that came with the computer.

  • Hello Stephen,

    That's the exact fix I tried and it led to the stage I am in now (needing to re-install for reactivation).
