Windows XP activation


  • MGA tool says my XP is genuine but I get error on boot that says product key for install is invalid.  How do I get valid one so my XP is activated.  This system is on a POS system and is not connected to internet.  Also what is the phone number for activation?

  • The error message is as follows:

    The Product Key used to install Windows is invalid. Please contact your system administrator or retailer immediately to obtain a valid Product Key. You may also contact Microsoft Corporation's Anti-Piracy Team by emailing if you think you have purchased pirated Microsoft software.

  • This error may be the root of your problem...

    File Mismatch: C:\WINXP\system32\oembios.bin[Hr = 0x800b0003]

    Open a Command Prompt window, and run the following command


    hit the return key, and wait for the scan to complete. - note any error message received

    Reboot and post a new MGADiag report

  • When I try the SFC command, it asks for XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD.  Says files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache.

    I don't have the CD(s) for this system.  If I can I get service pack 3 and put it on a cd, think this will work for this situation?  What format should it be?  ISO? EXE? other?

  • Another question: If I can find a full retail version of XP Professional, can I load it over the installed version?

  • Unfortunately, a copy of SP3 won't help - it needs to be the full XP PRO CD  with SP3- I don't know of any MS download sites for that, and although there are a few torrent sites around, many of them may be hacked in some way any may not work properly.

    Repair installs of XP are possible - but not as seamlessly as with later versions (and it's so long since I did one that I can't for the life of me remember how it's done!).

    Here's the instructions I'd use if it was me...
