Illegal VLK pre installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    My question is this, one of my colleagues within our company had a xp pro vlk preinstalled on a machine he has purchased in spain, thusly the genuine advantage notification is now visible.

    We have recently purchased a server which came bundled with vista business and xp pro downgrade kit, we did not however use them as we were installing Ubuntu for terminal services. So essentially we have a license which is unused and unactivated. Is there some way of using the product key to from my unused install to replace the vlk without having to re install the os

    the details of the system with vlk are as follows

  • Hello McCourt,


    Thank you for posting with us today. Unfortunately I do not think using your product key will work.  Potentially the product keys may be mismatched the Windows XP version you are trying to activate. Also depending on what version of Windows you have vs. the version he has installed. What I mean by version is OEM SLP, OEM System Builder, and Retail. Since the Windows is non-genuine there is no way to validate the actual bits used for installing. Research has shown that about half of the software copies available on P2P download sites are infected with root kits, spyware, Trojans, and other potentially harmful malware. One file in particular was very alarming.  This file was an administrator account giving the attacker full control over both your system and data.  I would be very concerned about his system integrity because Windows is non-genuine. Bottom line is I would reformat the hard drive and install Windows.


    Also I would recommend him to file a piracy report by visiting http://www.microsoft.com/piracy. Hopefully this will help you.


    Thank you,

    Stephen

  • Hello McCourt,

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to use the Windows license that came with the recently purchased server.

    It is a basic tenent of the OEM End User Licensing Agreement that the License cannot be moved from the computer onto which the license is first installed to any other computer.  (If you had Windows installed you could bring up the EULA to have a look at it by clicking Start>Run, type winver, click OK, then in the resultant window, click on the link to read software licensing terms.)  That means the Windows license that came with the server stays with the server even if you are not using it, and that license can't be moved to or used on any other computer, ever.

    Assuming the computer that generated the above report does not have a genuine Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) for Windows affixed to it, your best option for Getting Genuine would be to participate in the Genuine Windows Offer being displayed by the WGA messaging.
