Fresh OEM install on built PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a self-built PC that I am trying to install an OEM version of Windows XP Pro. It is new with the COA, but WGA is saying I have an invalid product key. It does say "OEM Software" on the COA. I tried reinstalling and made sure to put in the key correctly. It takes the key during installation, but will not validate. I have posted my diagnostic report. Thanks for any help.

    The Key in use here is one which was never issued by MS – it was instead generated by a hacker’s Loader tool.
    Since you say that you installed an OEM version, it would appear that you were sold a counterfeit.
    You should claim a refund from the vendor, and purchase a legal copy elsewhere.

  • Thank you for the information, Noel. When I first saw the failed validation, this was my first suspicion. I purchased it on Ebay, but it certainly looked legitimate and the seller had good feedback. These counterfeiters are very good. This has the usual hologram disk with the blue Microsoft booklet and a COA that looks like the real thing. I am hoping they sold this not knowing it was counterfiet. I will certainly find out. Thanks again.

    here’s my usual post for similar issues in Windows 7 – the links are still relevant, even if the detail isn’t.....
    You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key.(all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window. or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

    Please read the following stickies.... ......................

    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.
