Receive a message regarding activate to Windows XP: "this copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can continue to use it."

Why do I need to reactivate Windows XP?

Had the genuine Windows XP on my computer for years, which was activated when I bought it. Recently have messages saying: "this copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can continue to use it."  Tried to turn it back on, but just get a message saying that it is "unable to establish a connection with the activation server" and I can't go any further. Any ideas what is happening?

  • This copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can continue

    Hi guys

    After P2V Windows 2003 Storage Server 2003 x 64

    I get this message "this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can continue."

    and I am not able to connect to the server and I can not activate because the NETWORK card won't work - since without vmware tools.

    no idea why this is happening?

    VMware converter 5

    Thank you very much

    This can happen due to the material Exchange when you P2V. Is there not an option to activate by phone? If this is not the case, take a look at the virtual machine settings to see if the NETWORK card is 'E1000' which should be recognized by Windows 2003 out of the box.

    Hi Dale,

    Since you are not able to open a session in normal mode, log in in safe mode and perform a few steps that would help you solve the problem.

    Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not work in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

    Perform the steps mentioned below and see if it helps.
    a: turn on your PC
    b: Press F8 repeatedly , then in Mode safe
    c:
    Logon as per normal
    (Note: administrator password is usually empty, but I hope you know your password)
    d: Authorize the Office to load completely (who answered "Yes" to continue mode without failure)
    (Note: this is just a long way to say go to Safe Mode)
    e: Click Start - run
    f:
    type exactly: rundll32.exe syssetup, SetupOobeBnk (then click OK)
    (Note: a single space after 'rundll32.exe' also the Oo are two letter o in "oobe"; capital and the comma are important)
    g: Wait a few seconds (although you won't see any change)
    h : Restart your PC normally (start - stop - restart - Ok)
    i: You will be able to return to the Normal Mode.

    Good day!

    Dear Noel

    Thanks a lot for your information and advice.

    Ironically, I did not clean ups for fear of screwing it up.  However, I just bought a helmet camera and plugged into the USB to test its audio and video capabilities.  Perhaps that may be the problem.  Next time I'll just use the SD card reader.

    I right click on the Hydroforme icon which has been remember to activate.  Who took me through various routines that finally pointed out that the version of Windows I have is no longer for sale.  He then offered to sell me a current equivalent of Windows 7.  Unwilling to part with the money right away, I did a reboot and followed by the option activate who came.  It's very simple and work very well without fees.

    So, I'm now a "happy bunny".  Thanks a lot for your quick help.  Very much appreciated.

    If your license of Windows 7 is an upgrade:

    However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.

    15 UPDATES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible for the upgrade. After the upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software that you upgraded. After upgrade, you can no longer use the software that you upgraded.

    So, if you are always denied, you will just have to reinstall Windows XP or Vista and let it do the verification of eligibility.

    Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

    Method 1: I suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malware

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: While running scan on the hard drive if bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning try to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    Method 2: If this does not help then you can uninstall and reinstall Windows search 4.0 on the computer.

    Follow the steps below to uninstall:

    a. click on Start

    b. click Control Panel

    c. select Add / Remove Program

    d. place a check on "Show updates"
