Windows 7 Pro not genuine frustration (error 0x8004fe21) RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Windows is not genuine message (error 0x8004fe21) keeps popping up on screen when I know it is a valid install. It's a HP machine and I've had it since new.

    The problem first appeared in August after I'd put a new HDD into the machine. I rolled it back to a fresh copy from the old C drive and everything worked fine until December. I tried virus scanning with Avast and Malwarebytes but they turned up blank and now do not function. I can't access Windows Update and System Restore does not sort the problem. I really do not want to wipe and reinstall all my programs after so many years of use if I can possibly avoid it.

    I just do not know why this is happening and how to stop it recurring. (It's somewhat embarrassing as I spend a lot of my time fixing other peoples systems.)

  • This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -  

     

    Installing the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

    try downloading and installing them from here - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=21730

     

    (you want the iata_enu.exe download)

     

    Once complete, please reboot twice, then post another MGADiag report.

  • Thanks very much. Glad it was simple to fix.

    Windows Update now working so I'll run it through and hope it behaves.

    Didn't even think about the Intel drivers. Last time I saw chipset driver related issues with Windows files was with the VIAtech drivers 8 or 9 years ago.

  • It's an unfortunately common problem in Windows 7 - maybe 15% of the cases I see are related to it.

    The IRST/ISMT drivers seem to be particularly fragile, and don't like changes at all - one of the frequent causes is cloning an installation to a larger drive (still well under the 2TB limit)

  • Hi Noel

    Are you able to post a new link for the Intel drivers?

    I am having the exact same problem and the link above no longer works

    thank you

    Please start a new thread of your own, and post your own MGADiag report - I'd rather check that it's appropriate first.

    (locking thread to reduce confusion)

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
