Windows not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, For the past 2 weeks or so I have been getting the 'Windows is not genuine' notification. Let me just give you some background info.

    My laptop is a Sony Vaio. Unfortunately my hard drive failed so I had to buy a new one. I used vaio care and my windows backup CD's to get my copy of windows back onto my new hard drive. It ran fine for the first 2 months, but for the past week or so I am getting windows is not genuine message.

    Here is my diagnostics:

  • You've got a Sony OEM SLP install but your diagnostic is showing a Dell SLIC table.  This cannot legitimately activate and is classed as counterfeit.  You will need to format your drive and reinstall with a legal copy of Windows.  Be sure to back up your data first.

  • Thanks for the reply, I dont understand how this is a counterfeit. This version of windows came pre-installed with the Sony Vaio. Also I forgot to mention that although my hard drive was broken, I still managed to copy the 10GB recovery partition from it and then paste it onto my new hard drive, I had to do this because I did not know you had to buy a specific type of hard drive for the Sony Vaio until after I had bought my new hard drive.

  • The Product Key is for a Sony machine (correctly, since this appears to be a Sony machine, according to most of the BIOS)

    Most of the BIOS tables are correct - showing Sony,

    However there are two areas which show that a hacker's tool has been used to circumvent activation requirements.

    <OEM><OEMID>DELL  </OEMID><OEMTableID>QA09   </OEMTableID></OEM>


      SLIC DELL  QA09

    These changes cannot happen accidentally - for instance by using the wrong machine's Recovery media - they must be installed as part of a hack with the specific intention of attempting to circumvent activation and validation requirements.

    Our advice is always toe reformat and reinstall using known-genuine media when this happens, as many times whatever media were used to either install the hack, or install the hacked OS have been tampered with, and the installation can no longer be trusted.

    You should therefore use one of the two methods below to clean-install your machine

    1) Order a set of Recovery Media from Sony, and us that to get back the ex-factory installation


    2) Download your licensed edition of Windows 7 from the correct link at http://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/Microsoft and use that for a truly clean install. NOTE that you will have to use the Product Key from your COA Sticker for this installation - the OEM_SLP Key installed above will not work with the downloaded media, which is retail.

  • Thanks for the reply

    I can guarantee you this is a Sony Vaio VPCF12M0E Model, I have absolutely not been hacking anything. I wouldn't know where to start! All I did was after realising I had bought the wrong type of hard drive, and that my recovery CD didnt work because the new hard drive is not formatted for it. I then thought to copy over the 10GB recovery partition from my old hard drive to my new one I then turned on my laptop and it ran, windows came on and everything was dandy, until now. To be honest I don't understand any of the technological Jargon you just posted. I'll try out the two options you have given me and get back to you.

  • Be certain to back up anything you do not want to lose first because both option will wipe your hard drive.
