My key wont validate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought an OEM XP Pro SP2 right after the WGA started.  Right from the beginning it would not validate.  I spent many hours on the phone with Support and I passed all the tests of what my COA and CD look like.  But they kept telling me that my Product key was never generated by M$.  They basically ended the trouble ticket that ended with, "well everything you tells us is exactly how it should be, oh well you are screwed."  Thanks M$, I give you my money and you give me nothing.  So I have been forced to use the work arounds on the wga.  This is my last ditch effort for you guys to fix this problem.

    Here is my wgadiag info

    You may qualify for a free high quality counterfeit report (WGA Kit). If you click Validate at www.microsoft.com/genuine, then look under "see all options" - you may submit a counterfeit report, which may allow you to recieve a free WGA Kit. Otherwise, your copy of Windows is not genuine - it is using a Volume license and not an OEM.

  • Ratman,

    Your computer now has Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro on it.

    If is was an installation done by a systembuilder/OEM CD, the License Type entry in the report would read "COA/sysembuilder" [sic]

    Pop your CD in and look in the i386 folder for a file called setupp.ini.  It will consist of two lines of info.  Please post the second line.

  • Ratman,

    The PID for an OEM CD will read XXXXXOEM.

    What makes you think this is an OEM CD?  What is on the COA?

    Have you had a look at the high-quality counterfeit software materials here?  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/counterfeit.mspx

  • My COA says

    Windows XP Professional

    OEM Software

     

    It is identical to the Blue/Green with Keyboard COA even the High Grade passes

  • Ratman,

    What about the CD?  Does it look like the ones at this link:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/ww/windows/quiz_coa.mspx?quizType=oem&compareButton=Compare+Now

    Pick the COA that looks like yours, then work thru to the next few pages where you get to look at CDs.

  • MY cd is perfect, like I said before I did this over the phone with the Support group, twice I think.
