    Your WGA diag log shows you have a Blocked VLK.

    Volume Licenses are only available for mostly corporate use and are not for sale as a retail item.

     

    Can you verify that your COA matches your Product Key? If it does not you can try the following:

     

    1 - Reinstall Windows so your COA matches your Product Key (install using your COA as the Product Key) - This is the preferred method by Microsoft, as it will be a fresh copy, void of potential hacked binary files and security loops that may have been created to bypass WGA. We know this is usually not the user preference, but it is the safest method.

     

    The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key – all without a reinstall! http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346&clcid=0x409

     

    I hope this helps,

    Greg
