Win XP Validation Under BootCamp RRS feed

  • Question

  • I loaded XP SP3 OEM (which I'd purchased new from a reputable local supplier) onto my iMac using BootCamp. When I installed Win the initial validation was successful. I then loaded the BootCamp drivers and the outstanding Windows Updates. Since then, I am getting validation rejections. I have tried (four times) deleting c:\windows\system32\LegitCheckControl.dll then reloading the ActiveX from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?=LinkId=69479 then running the diagnostics at http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/.  Those diagnostics are all clear, but when I then try to Validate Windows it rejects.  My diagnostics printout is shown below, and I'd be grateful for any assistance.

  • Hello Lewis Tas,

    Yes, right now you do have a nongenuine installation of XP Pro on your Apple computer.  As you explained it's supposed to be an OEM license, but the CD put down a Volume License, a very strong indicator of a counterfeit CD.

    Does the Product Key on the CoA match what is being reported by the mgadiag utility,*****-*****-QG8C2-V244C-YB8FG?  If so, that's another strong indicator of a counterfeit licensing kit, since that exact Product Key has been identified by the mgadiag utility as an Invalid Product Key, meaning it was made with a pirating program called a Key Generator and was never issued by Microsoft.

    For more information on how to examine the materials you purchased, and to see examples of counterfeit materials, visit http://www.howtotell.com .

    Assuming the above, you should return the product to the seller and demand a full refund.  Once you get the refund, please make your Windows XP purchase from a major local or online retailer, or from a source that you can really trust.

  • Many thanks, Darin. I'll do as you suggest, but I'm still curious as to why it initially validated the software (the acceptance message included a bit about "Thanks for using genuine Microsoft products" or some such).
    I've checked out the "how to tell" site, and the CD I have passes all of those tests.
    The seller was a local (i.e. Australian) eBay computer seller with an excellent history. However, I'll get back to him now and demand a refund. I won't close this query off until I've heard back from him, just in case he has something to say which might interest you. -Regards & thanks, Lewis.
