Purchased WinXP from eBay, want to verify if it's valid. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I purchased an "Unopened / Unused" copy of Windows XP on eBay and have looked over the package and it is one of those "Only for use with a new PC" packages. Nothing tells me this is a counterfeit and looks genuine. It's got the COA and the disk. I've installed copies of WinXP before and have noticed that you can't type in the code if it's wrong but this one installed fine the very first time. It was when I got to the WGA update and install that my computer told me it was counterfeit. Is this true? Can you please verify my MGA Diag results and let me know what I should do next please? Did I do something wrong or is this truely a bad COA? I really need to run XP Pro but am running out of time to get this computer running. It's a custom build and can't find XP anywhere else. I guess my question is since I have the COA and the Disk, am I the rightful licensee or is there more to it than that? Thank You in advance!

    Unfortunately, the installed copy of Windows XP Professional is counterfeit.  It is a Volume License version installed using a counterfeit product key that was likely generated by an illegal product key generator or keygen.  Contact the seller and demand a full refund!

    Since Windows XP is no longer available, consider installing  Windows 7 Professional – Full Version, then download and install the FREE  Windows XP Mode.

  • Would the disk I used to install be part of the problem? I used a disk I have in order to install it but didn't use the one in the package. I have seen posts that the disks don't matter so I wasn't thinking anything of it. I don't want to contact the seller unless I am absolutely sure I am not accusing him/her of anything. Just being safe and politically correct!

  • Yes, the correct Windows XP disc does matter.  The one you apparently used installed the Volume License version.

    However, at this point, try using the Windows Product Key Update Tool and use the product key that came in the package.

  • Okay, that could be my mistake. I will try the windows product key update tool or reinstall with the disk directly from the package. If that doesn't work I will notify the seller. Thank you for your help, you answered my questions and was confused about the disk issue. I will post back once I try your recommendations!!

  • Hello jlsequine,

    If you used the product key that came with the disc you bought on eBay, then all of what you have (the eBay disc, your disc, and the eBay PK) is counterfeit.
