  • The product key affixed to your notebook PC is only valid with the manufacturer's recommended recovery or restore CD.  You'll eed to contact your notebook manufacturer and request the correct Windows reinstallation CD.

  • Anne Lucy,

     

    Right now your Medion computer has a "hacked and cracked" installation of XP Media Center Edition.

    How we know is because Line 11 of the report is showing that you have a "retail" installation (license type) of Media Center:

    Windows License Type: Retail                  Windows OS version: 5.1.2600.2.00010100.2.0.med

    The problem with that is there is no such thing as a Retail license for Media Center (IOW they are not offered for sale in retail packaging that you would find at a major electronics retailer).  Genuine copies would have shown up in the report as either "systembuilder/OEM" or "OEM SLP."  That is why I call it "hacked and cracked."  As I understand it, this is the result of installing a crack available on the internet that adds Media Center functionality to a non-Media Center installation of XP.

    The friend who loaned you the discs may or may not know that the discs contain a hacked copy of XP.

    You have told us that the CoA for your system says that your computer is a Medion computer.  The solution to your current problem is to use the Recovery Solution provided by Medion with the computer to put the original shipping Windows XP Operating System back onto the computer, which the CoA is telling us is Windows XP Media center Edition 2005.  Typically the Recovery solution is a hidden recovery partition on the hard disk drive, or a set of Recovery CDs/DVDs.  Typically, the Recovery solution erases all user data on the hard disk drive, so please be sure to backup and offload any valuable data before you run the Recovery.  You will want to review the documentation for your exact model of Medion before you do the Recovery.

    If you do not have the recovery CDs or recovery partition, please contact Medion support staff thru their website at http://www.medion.com/, then choose your country.  You will want to look for information about the recovery options for your computer.

    Finally, one last bit of bad news:  the installation of Office 2007 Pro Plus on your computer is showing as a nongenuine installation.  If this comes as a surprise to you, please return to the place of purchase and demand the genuine software you paid for, or a refund.  In any case, please remove these nongenuine installation of Office as soon as possible.

  • Anne,

     

    The information Dan supplied is correct. Also I ran the diag results through our system to confirm. Follow the guidance which Dan provided.  Please make sure all the data is backed up either to a DvD or CD-Rom Disc, external hard drive or memory sticks. Also you may submit a piracy report. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to re-post.  Thank you.

    I have almost the same problem:

    I do use XP Media Center Edition as part of Action Pack subscription for development and testing purpuses. After reinstalling my PC I've called local MS representative to activate it over phone. After successful activation I've got "..did not pass genuine validation.." message and testing tool showed that I have "Validation Status: Invalid Product Key".

     

    What can I do in this situation?

     

    Best regards,

    Nik
