Verification key not valid RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I'm running windows XP professional on a MacBook Pro using Boot Camp. I have had to reinstall Windows several times and this time when I enter my verification key I receive the message that it is not valid. I am on the faculty at the University and I purchased this version of Windows at University bookstore so I am sure it is a valid copy, especially since the verification number was accepted previously. I don't know how to resolve this. What kind of information would you need from me in order to assist me? I appreciate whatever you can do for me

    In order to receive the best support, we request all users initially download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Run" several times to download and start the Utility.  When asked, click the "Continue" button.  When the utility completes its run, click the "Copy" button, then come back here and paste the report into your post.

    (Of course, you'd downlaod and run this from within your XP installation.)

    Are you getting the "invalid product key" error message early in Setup as soon as you enter the product key into the dialog box, or do you get the message after XP is fully installed and when you try to activate online?

    Please repost your problem to your OWN NEW thread - this avoids confusion for all.
    Having said that, I suspect that MS has finally realised that you have changed the motherboard since you first used the License - which invalidates the license.
    You motherboard appears to have been manufactured in 2009, yet you say that you've owned the license for 9 years.
