WGA Activation Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,
        I purchased my Gateway CX210X with Vista Home Premium in the beginning of 2008.  In September my hard drive crashed and I replaced it with a 250GB.  After checking with Gateway about my product key (it was rubbed off of the bottom of my laptop) they assured me it was not required with Vista and I installed Vista using my restoration disks.  After that I was unable to activate my Vista.  Gateway email techs said that it should work,
    "Thank you for using Gateway's Online email support.  Regarding your
    > concern about the Product key, the windows version provided by Gateway
    > does not require Windows Product Activation (WPA) or a Product
    > Identification (PID) number, because Gateway has implemented System
    > Locked Pre-installation (SLP) on the Windows Vista CDs."
    Gateway phone techs told me that I would have to buy another copy of Vista.  Microsoft phone activation bounced from volume user to an unusable number; I emailed Gateway again and was told this should not be happening.  In the midst of this, a trojan took over my pc and I had to reinstall Vista fresh at the end of November.  I have been trying to validate Vista since then and today I  entered RFM.  Following is my diagnostic post.  What is my next step?

  • Jim,

    Gateway Technical support is correct regarding how manufacturers install operating systems via System  Locked Pre-installation (SLP).  The Certificate of Authenticity (COA) which has an additional 25 alpha/numeric code could be used in a situation which you are facing. Jim I would call them back and ask them for an additional COA. Please review the following Knowledge Base (KB) article and refer to the resolution portion of the webpage:

     KB931573 – You may be prompted to activate Windows Vista on a computer on which Windows Vista was already activated by a Volume License or OEM installation

     http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;931573 

     If the above does not resolve your issue, please follow the steps below. If the first set of steps does not resolve, move on to the next set of steps.

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step set #1

     

    1) Open Internet Explorer

    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3) Find the file cmd.exe

    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)

    6) Hit the Enter key

    7) Reboot 2 times

     

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step set #2

     

    1) Open Internet Browser

    2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.

    3) Find the file CMD.exe

    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)

    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing

    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar

    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32

    9) Type net start slsvc

    10) Reboot Twice

    11) Windows Vista may require you to enter a Product Key [use the Certificate of Authenticity (COA)] SLP Product Key found on the sticker on the side or bottom of your computer and activate. Use the Activate by Phone method outlined below.

    From the Desktop:

    a) If you have access to the Start button: Click the Start button, and type in "slui.exe 4" in the search field and then press the "Enter" key. This will bring up the Activate by Phone dialog window. Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.


    b) If you do not have access to the Start button: Reboot and login to Vista, a dialog window will come up. In that window, click the option "Access computer with reduced functionality". Once you do that, Internet Explorer or Firefox browser will open. In the address bar type "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" press enter, a new window will come up, type: slui 4 and hit enter and follow steps to Activate over the Phone.

    Also you may reference the following site for various Telephone Activation Centers:
