0x8004fe21 after SSD installation and re-install of Windows on it RRS feed

  • Question

  • I constantly get annoying popup saying Windows 7 is not genuine although I have a sticker on the bottom of my laptop and I use that code. System says Windows has been activated. I installed SSD and reverted back to 7 from 10.

    Error code: 0x8004fe21

    I already tried these steps to help but the issue persists. I had to call automatic activation service again after these steps but the popups still appear:

    1) Click Start button.
    2) Type: CMD.exe into the ‘Search programs and files’ field
    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator
    4) Type: net stop sppsvc (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    Note: the Software Protection service may not be running, this is ok.
    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    8) Type: net start sppsvc
    9) Type: slui.exe
    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key or Activation may occur automatically.

  • Download and install the Intel Chipset Installation Utility and Driver and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver, then restart your PC twice. Then run another MGA report and post it here. Thank you!

  • Thanks but unfortunately Intel Chipset Installation Utility and Driver (Windows 7, 64-bit) fails to install. "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software. Installation will be aborted."

    Installation log: http://pastebin.com/vLsmtwcU

    Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver (iata_enu.exe) also fails to install. "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."

    Installation log: http://pastebin.com/x9c25d2Q

    Edit: The exact model of my laptop is:

    HP Pavilion g7-2008eo

    But there are no Intel Chipset Installation Utility and Driver for download at HP's product page for this model.

  • Perform a System File Scan. The scan will look for bad Windows files and will attempt to repair them, if possible.

    1) Click the Start Button
    2) Type: cmd.exe
    3) Right-click the cmd.exe file and select 'Run as Administrator'
    4) In the CMD window, type: sfc /scannow
    5) Reboot and see if that resolves the issue.

  • Windows found bad files but was unable to repair them.

    I did run it as administrator.

  • The problem here is that Vistalizator is installed in an attempt to circumvent language restrictions - uninstalling ALL the secondary languages may resolve the problem.

    However, the BIOS date is 2013 - and the Windows Product Type is OEM_COA_SLP.

    This would imply that the Windows license itself is not genuine, since Windows 7 hasn't been sold pre-installed in machines since 2011. It's therefore highly likely to be a counterfeit installation.

    From where did you acquire this machine, and is there a COA sticker on the case? If there is a COA sticker, for what version and edition of WIndows is it valid? Is there a Windows 8 sticker on the case?

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

  • Sorry for the late reply. I was travelling.

    Vistalizator being the problem may very well be true since I needed to use that to add my language. I was unable to find official download link of Windows 7 with my language pre-installed. My laptop did not come with Windows 7 installation CD when I bought it. I am unwilling to uninstall secondary languages since the annoying popup is less of an annoyance than using only English as system language would be.

    The license itself is genuine and it was also validated on phone directly with Microsoft support personnel. However they were unable to help with the issue. The laptop was bought from a big reputable home appliances seller and the sticker in bottom is genuine. The sticker says "Windows 7 Home Prem OA". There is no Windows 8 sticker on the case.

    Edit: I may have updated BIOS back in 2013 but the laptop was bought in July 2012 as brand new.
