Genuine Validation - Not Activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've got a Windows XP Pro copy from my tertiary institute (free under the Microsoft Tertiary program). I have installed it twice. Had to do a reformat once and then re-installed it back onto the same machine.

    I now get the usual your windows may not be legal etc etc...

    Very annoyed as it is not letting me activate using my original licence key. I heard that there have been issues with VLK's but what do i need to do to fix this problem. The failure code is: 0x80080201

    I'm also getting that - windows needs to be activated message. I can't activate using the original key. Microsoft please sort this out or else it will just encourage us to use patches and registry hacks!

  • Ritz:


    This KB article will give more information about activation.




    Please try this and let us know if you are able to activate.


    Also, your copy of Office is not genuine. I would recommend heading back to your retail point to remedy the situation before any further issues occur.
