Windows Copy Not Genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have had this issue once before even though I purchased a fully licensed version of Vista some time ago. I followed Darin Smith's advice, and ran the cscript in the cmd prompt and it fixed it the first time around- It has happened again and for some reason even though I tried running script again, when I reboot it simply says that windows is not genuine -

    Help!!

  • Hi tandoras,

      Most Non-Genuine issues look the same so this may not be the same problem as you had last time.  Would you post a Diagnostic Report for this current issue?

    download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool (MGADiag.exe) at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Continue", click the "Copy" button then “Paste” the report into a reply message in this thread.

     

    If you do not have access to the Start Button:

    1)    Login to Vista and click the option that brings up Internet Explorer.

    2)    Type: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 into the browser address bar.

    3)    A window will come up asking if you want to “Run” or “Save”, Select “Run”

    4)    When the program runs, click the “Continue” button, then click the “Copy” button.

    5)    Return to this thread http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuinevista/thread/dd5259a8-25f7-47a5-aff3-c8b57d3cc5cb.

    6)    In a reply post, paste the Diagnostic Report.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
