  • Hello thiagolyr,

     

    Your Acer Aspire machine has Genuine XP Pro installed.

     

    Regarding your Product Key, in this case, it is expected and normal that the Product Key (PK) on the Certificate of Authenticity label be different from the one reported by the mgadiag utility.  The Product Key being reported by the mgadiag utility is the valid, Genuine PK issued to Dell by Microsoft to use to deploy their standard Windows XP Pro installation to their many computers.  Microsoft allows major manufacturers to do it this way because it would be way too time consuming and cumbersome for these big computer manufacturers to do a separate installation and activation for every one of the millions of computers they sell. 

    Your Office 2003 Standard is being identified as Genuine, too.

  • Hello Thiagolyr,

     

    Let’s split your thread off so we may focus more attention on your particular situation.  Splitting threads are done to mitigate confusion caused by more than one posting about similar   topics allowing us to focus on each customer individually.  Please post your question here http://forums.microsoft.com/Genuine/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=442&SiteID=25 in a new thread of your own. 

    In order to receive the best support, we request all users to initially run the Genuine Diagnostics tool.  The tool will try and identify the individual issue you may be experiencing.  Also, please provide a brief synopsis describing the issue including any error messages or codes. These can be found in the lower left hand corner of most Genuine Advantage Web pages when an error is encountered.

    Please download and run the MS Genuine Diagnostic Tool utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

     

    Step 2 is telling us about the COA. Tell us:

    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?

    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.

     

     

    Thank you,

  • Thiago lyr,

     

    Curious. Can you please share with us what you mean by using the original Windows XP CD? Also please provide us with the manufacturer of the computer which you are using the Windows XP CD on. Please tell us:

     

    What the COA sticker and CD indicates:

    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?

    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.

     

     

    Thank you very much,
