  • 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.
     

    If you ignore it, you won't get all the Windows Updates, and you'll be restricted on some software (Windows Media Center, MSE, etc) Depending on which SP level your install is at, you may eventually not ba able to access the normal desktop.
