Invalid Copy Of Windows XP After Fresh Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just did a fresh install of new OEM copy of Windows XP on a laptop and now it's telling me it's not genuine but is was a sealed copy and the COA looks good what do I need to do to resolve this. Below is a copy from the diagnostic tool.

  • Unfortunately, the Windows XP disc you have is non-genuine and counterfeit.  It is not an OEM version of Windows XP.  It is actually a Volume License version that is meant only for business enterprises.  The product key was likely generated using an illegal product key generator or KeyGen.  Contact the seller and demand an immediate refund!

    From your MGA report:

    Windows License Type: Volume
    Validation Status: Invalid Product Key

    You can acquire a genuine copy of Windows XP by visiting Microsoft Genuine Advantage and clicking on Validate Windows.  When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button to learn about the WGA Kit.

    Another option is to contact Dell and order Dell's Windows XP Reinstallation disc.  See: How to order Dell Backup Discs
