MGADiag results show damaged/tampered files after drive cloning RRS feed

  • Question

  • Long story short, in November I installed a brand new 750Gb hard drive with Win7 Pro 64. Everything was great. It's a legit copy, via the Microsoft Developer Program my employer is part of.

    In December, the weeks-old hard drive began to fail, so I quickly overnighted a new one and cloned the old drive to it. Everything seemed to go ok and Windows works and all. Somewhere in December or January though, I noticed that Windows no longer felt it was genuine. If I go through the Activate Windows process, it says it is fine. I can no longer run Windows Update and DRM media (Netflix streaming) won't play. 

    Recently, reading this forum, I learned of MGADiag and ran it. It showed the following errors:

    http://pastebin.com/wfPNQWhe

     

    Now, the questions is, how can I repair this and put things right? I tried a Repair Install of Win7 (installing as an Upgrade) to try to sort things out, but most of the way through the install it borks. It appears to be having trouble with the Intel Matrix Storage driver, but I'm not using RAID, and this is a laptop where I can't seem to access and IDE legacy settings. And Win7 installed fine the first time (clean), so i don't know what to make of it.

     

    I could probably reformat and start over, but that would cost me weeks of downtime reinstalling all the apps and stuff on this, my main work machine, so I'd really like to fix things.

     

    I also tried sfc /scannow  but it was unable to repair some of the files. It produced a HUGE logfile, which I can provide if necessary.

     

    I don't seem to have any System Restore Points old enough to use.

     

    Any suggestions? Can I just get these files from another, similar machine and somehow drop them in safely? They all seems to be executable code and stock configuration data -- not something that is customized to my system.

  • If you have a retail dvd try doing an upgrade in place (aka repair install).  At the desktop insert the dvd and choose Install Now at the splash screen.  Be sure to choose upgrade and not custom install of course.  If you have already installed SP1 and/or IE9 remove those first.  This is a long thread so if you have already done this, please ignore and consider a complete reinstall.

  • I have already tried that. It fails after most of the upgrade install, apparently due to the Intel Matrix Storage drivers (though this is a single, non-RAID drive). Win7 installed fine initially, but now cannot do an upgrade install.

     

    I'm considering a grade & pave, but I don't want to incur the downtime if I can avoid it. I was hoping this seemingly minor damage would be repairable. I guess I'll try replacing those tampered files with copies from a similar box, if nobody has any better suggestions (or reasons I shouldn't try that).

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

    I do graphics work, but of a different nature. Since leaving TCR in 94 I have written 3D graphics software, mostly highly realistic terrain-related, and now specializing in realtime graphics. Here are some of my companies I've founded:

  • Anyway, trying to get on-topic now that I've met an old colleague, what should I do to get the ship back on course?

    Is it sufficient to simply replaces these damaged/tampered files? Is the version quoted in the "File Scan Data" the version it's EXPECTING to see, or the version it found? If that's the version it's expecting, I could just go to another, similar Win7/64 box (like one of my fellow coders') and snag those files over, if they're the exact same version. I imagine they're protected at runtime, but I could probably use the Linux System Rescue CD to boot from a USB key, mount the NTFS and replace those files. I've had to do that to other folks' systems to remove particularly viciously-embedded malware.

    Any advice?

  • I'm deferring to Darin Smith on the cause on this one.  It might only be a corrupt license store but I'm not adept at that kind of issue.

  • Hello Xenon,

    Based on the number of corrupted/tampered files and SFC not being able to fix, I would first vet the hardware setup.  Does the laptop manufacturer have a hardware diagnostic that you can run (I know HP and Dell have them on disk [but since the oem disk was replaced it's likely not been transfered to the new disk] and on disc)?  And it couldn't hurt to run the disk manufacturer's diagnostic as well.

    Thursday, March 10, 2011 4:11 PM
  • I'm not clear on what you're suggesting to "vet the hardware".

     

    The machine seems to be otherwise stable. Hard disk SMART monitoring shows the current disk to be healthy.

     

    This laptop (A Sager Midern NP2096) was originally shipped with Vista-64, which was an exercise in horror. It has run much better under Win7/64 since I installed it last fall.

     

    I do not have any manufacturer-specific diagnostics, and they probably wouldn't know what to do with the current config, since when I went to Win7 I started over with a fresh new hard disk and installed a new OS to eliminate any remnants of the previous configuration.

     

    I confess, I'm not a Win7 guru, and a "corrupt license store" is outside my ken.  If anyone wants to point me in the direction of a meaningful reference on this, I can go educate myself perhaps.

  • Chris,

    This is Darin Smith's (MSFT) standard recipe for fixing a corrupt license store.  It is from (shortened)

    http://bit.ly/i2nUwb 

    2) Recreate Licensing Store

    I also see indications that Windows 7 Licensing Store may be corrupt or unreadable for some reason.  Follow the below steps to Recreate the Store.

    1) Click Start button.
    2) Type: CMD.exe into the 'Search programs and files' field
    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    4) Type: net stop sppsvc   (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    Note: the Software Protection servive may not be running, this is ok.
    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    8) Type: net start sppsvc
    9) Type: slui.exe
    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key or Activation may occur automatically.


    Thank you,
    Darin MS"

  • This morning, I got the "not genuine" error again. Windows Update had finally launched, and was refusing to operate because the "service wasn't running".

     

    So I think I need to investigate repairing the tampered file next. Any advice on this, or is there a different angle I should pursue?

  • If you have a retail dvd try doing an upgrade in place (aka repair install).  At the desktop insert the dvd and choose Install Now at the splash screen.  Be sure to choose upgrade and not custom install of course.  If you have already installed SP1 and/or IE9 remove those first.  This is a long thread so if you have already done this, please ignore and consider a complete reinstall.

  • I have already tried that. It fails after most of the upgrade install, apparently due to the Intel Matrix Storage drivers (though this is a single, non-RAID drive). Win7 installed fine initially, but now cannot do an upgrade install.

     

    I'm considering a grade & pave, but I don't want to incur the downtime if I can avoid it. I was hoping this seemingly minor damage would be repairable. I guess I'll try replacing those tampered files with copies from a similar box, if nobody has any better suggestions (or reasons I shouldn't try that).

  • I've experienced this same sequence of events.  I purchased a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium about a year and a half ago.  About a month ago I got a warning that the drive was failing and I backed up the drive with Acronis, swapped the drive out and restored.  A few days later I got the first Windows not Genuine message.  Windows Update fails to run and Indexing is shut down.  I ran through all the same reporting and troubleshooting and nothing helped the issue.  MGADiag, SFC, damaged license store fix, boot repair and an inplace upgrade.  The inplace upgrade fails reporting that Windows 7 is incompatible with the hardware.   

    Did anyone find a fix for this?  I'm about to bite the bullet and do a fresh load - wasting weeks of time.  Help!
