Windows 7 deactivated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, OK so here is what I've done...
    I backed up my windows 7 pro installation using Acronis TrueImage. Then I wiped my hdd and broke it into two partitions. On the first partition I installed my genuine copy of Windows XP (don't ask!, so my autistic son can play his favourite game, Dungeon Keeper as our old PC finally packed up). On the second partition I restored the windows 7 installation I backed up earlier, and after a bit of fiddling around with EasyBCD I got my laptop in a Dual boot setup. Perfect, I thought.
    While I was at it I updated a few drivers from the official Samsung website for my R519 laptop, couldn't see any problem with loading the latest drivers etc..
    I'm not sure what has caused the problem or even if it was one of the above things, but now when I look at My Computer properties I notice that my genuine windows 7 professional installation is deactivated and is planning to auto activate in 3 days. I tried activating manually but got that 0xC004E003 error.
    I've contacted Samsung and they are useless so that's a no go. Anyone got any idea how I fix this? I had to download and run that magicaljellybeans software to find the product code as the proper code (not the OEM one) isn't visible on the sticker, it's worn out as the fools put it on the bottom of the laptop, so it's just worn off!
    I've downloaded that tool and here are the details:

    Any help would be much appreciated as my son is at meltdown point in not being able to play Dungeon Keeper, and I want to be able to use my genuine copy of Windows 7 Pro! Thanks in advance.

  • The Key in use is an OEM_SLP Key for a Samsung machine

    The Motherboard declares itself to be a Samsung

    The BIOS SLIC table however is for a Dell computer.

    This means that there is a hacker's Activation Exploit present - which automatically makes the installation invalid, since it's a breach of the licensing rules.

    If the installed OS is the same as the OS on the COA sticker, you can try changing the Key to the one on the sticker - but the system may still be declared invalid later if the system detects the hack.

    The best option is a clean reinstall of the OS.

  • After reading some other threads on this subject I should add that I haven't replaced the motherboard and it is and has only ever been installed on the one laptop. My main PC has windows 8.1, which is what I used to do the partitioning before putting the formatted and partitioned hdd back into the laptop to install Windows XP (which activated just fine!)


    It has to be a genuine installation as the laptop was provided to my son by the Government when they were handing out laptops to children with autism a few years back.

  • Really can't see how there is any kind of hack in there, like I say, the machine was provided with the OS installed by the UK government (are they giving out unlicensed software these days?). Had no problems in the past recovering from TrueImage backups, it's only now I've stuck XP on there that the problems started.

    To be honest I've given up now anyway, life is too short to be fiddling with Microsoft activations so I've just put Ubuntu on instead with XP, which works fine. I did try activating using the code on the license sticker and got that error basically saying it's already in use - well it bloody well isn't anymore, one more customer gone over to the other side!

    Thanks for the reply though.

  • I cannot say how the hack got installed - but it is/was most definitely present.
