    I just traded in my old CPU for a new one. My genuime Windows XP is still in my old hard drive inside my new CPU. Is there a way I can somehow activate it onto my another new hard drive?

  • Moring Uthopia,

    "Is there a way I can somehow activate it onto my another new hard drive?" No because you will need to have the original disc to perform a complete installation. Please search the forums for the last 15 digits of the product key from your MGA Diagnostic Results QRPVF-V86FC-P3R8Y. Also you may use a favorite search engine and you will find several sites which have the same last 15 digits. 

    Thank you for visiting the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) program forum. I understand the inconvenience you are currently experiencing. We have seen numerous issues from customers who were provided a Volume License Key (VLK) on their computer that has either been blocked by Microsoft or generated by a fake product key code generator. WGA currently provides checks for these types of product keys and prompts the user to notify them of this situation. More invalid product keys are being identified daily and WGA is constantly refreshing its database with these newly identified product keys and immediately blocks them.

    Right now, your computer has a Volume License (VL) edition of Windows XP Professional identified. The installation was done with a now-blocked Volume License Key (VLK) located on line 2. VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original product key holder for various reasons such as the product key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired. Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, i.e., more installations of Windows XP Professional using that key than authorized.

    As a rule, VL editions of Windows XP Professional should not be sold to individual consumers. Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP is Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.  Please ask your systems administrator to logon to the eOpen site (https://eopen.microsoft.com/EN/default.asp) and confirm what your company’s assigned VLK.  Sometimes how customers find themselves in this situation is that when their IT department was creating their VL image to be deployed to their desktops, they sometimes inadvertently use an incorrect product key because it was handy.

    If this comes as a total surprise to you, please go back to where you purchased the installed (Place OS Version Here installed) and let them know it is a counterfeit copy and demand they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy. Next, uninstall the non-genuine installation of (Place OS Version Here installed) because there could be viruses pre-built into the counterfeit version of the software purchased.

    If you still believe your VLK is Genuine, please refer to the following steps to confirm either genuine or non-genuine status: 

     1) If you are a Microsoft Volume Licensing customer you should contact your re-seller and address the issue with them directly.

    2) Refer to this Microsoft Product Activation website for information concerning VLK’s. See the link below:


     3) If your reseller did not keep a record of your key, and is unable to assist you or can no longer be contacted, please call the appropriate number here to confirm your Volume Licensing agreement directly with Microsoft. The below Microsoft Volume Licensing FAQ will provide you with all the information needed to contact Microsoft directly about your Volume Licensing agreement:


    4) If you believe you have been sold counterfeit software you can provide Piracy information using the below link:


    5) If your issue is still not resolved you may Purchase a copy of Windows XP or if you believe you have an existing valid Product Key and change the existing product key using the following Microsoft Knowledge base article to change the VLK only. This will not work when trying to change the Blocked VLK to a Retail or OEM Product Key.

    KB328874 - How to change the Volume Licensing product key on a computer that is running Windows XP SP1 and later versions of Windows XP


     6) If you are attempting to change the existing key to a valid OEM or Retail key please follow the repair installation outlined in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

    KB315341 - How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP


    A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals. In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit the following link click on Validate Windows. When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit. Here is the link:
