Windows XP Pro 64: ask to activate a second time

Installed new copy of XP64 Pro a few weeks ago. The software install and active very well. Now, I get the following messages:

(a) you need to reactivate within 3 days because there was a major change in the components of pc. There has been no hardware changes. Reactivated again with success.

(b) a request to send error Microsoft reports that I had previously chosen "Do not send".

I downloaded a number of post installation of security updates. One of them would be responsible of the above?

Any help is appreciated.

XP sometimes requires reactivation after pilot installations (this is why I always leave activation until the system is fully updated, if possible) where pilots can change the description of the material that Windows uses to check the validity of the activation. Most often this happens after upgrading motherboard drivers and BIOS.

  • Need help, can't activate Windows 8 Pro on HP 3125

    I got a netbook HP 3125 which has an AMD E2 APU, 4 GB ram, 320 HARD and Windows 8 Pro disc and would use for about a month and well. Recently, I decided to update my ram and anything by doing this, I also decided to upgrade to an SSD HARD drive.

    I changed the HARD drive out and installed the SSD, but the BIOS doesn't detect so I disabled the Secure Boot, boot enable Legacy and then proceed to installing a custom installation of Windows 8 Pro using a USB key.

    After installation, it asked me a product key, which I find it weird because Windows 8 does not come with product key labels, since it is built into the bios.

    My problem is, how do I activate my Windows 8 Pro, when it keeps asking me for a product key that I don't have?

    Also, I noticed in the BIOS, it is sometimes called 'Key to load HP factory default', but I can only do this when secure startup is enabled.

    Embedded product key Windows 8 has something to do with the secure boot, for example, if the Secure Boot is disabled, then Windows 8 will not activate?

    Thank you

    Woot! I got it to work!

    Secure boot has nothing to do with the activation of Windows 8 or not with the COA embedded (product key) which is in the bios.

    Here's what I did, just note that this method may not be appropriate measures, but it still works. And different systems configurations, may require different or additional measures. Also, this method may or may not work with all systems.

    for example, the brand or the system you may or may not work with the steps posted in this thread.

    If you have a Windows 8 with a product key that is located on a sticky label, this does not apply to you. It's only for those who have purchased a brand name with Windows 8 system, and it does not come with a sticker product key.

    Components used in this tutorial

    -3125 Netbook HP: AMD E2/6 GB/Intel of the Commission 330 120 GB SSD/F27 bios (later at the time of this tutorial)

    -Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (original) disc

    -SATA to USB 3.0 adapter

    -Lite-ON SATA DVD Writer

    1. turn on the system and press F10 to go into the Bios

    2. in the bios, go to trial system > Boot Options

    3. go to Secure Boot and disable it

    4. Select clear all Secure Boot key and enter the 4-digit confirmation code

    5. then go to support HP Factory Default Keys, select it and press Yes

    6. save the Bios and output

    7. Press F10 and return in the Bios

    8. go to the System Configuration > Start Options

    9. select Legacy Support and activate it. A warning message appears, saying that this may cause the operating system to boot, just ignore it and press Yes.

    Now you should see the following text:

    Legacy support = on and key = registered platform

    10 save the Bios and output

    11 insert the disc of Windows 8 for the DVD player and release the boot drive order by pressing F9

    12. the driver, select start from the EFI file and press on enter

    A window opens, showing the HDD/SSD and DVD player with a unique code next to each hardware device

    13. Select EFI sector DVD and press ENTER.

    14. then select , , Bootx64.EFI. After that it will be white and then asked at the start of the DVD.

    15. Press any key to boot from the DVD. If it's done correctly, you will see a HP start-up logo

    16. once the DVD has finished initializing, will appear on the screen of configuration of Windows 8. Click next

    17. accept the EULA and then select custom installation

    18. create a new partition on the disk that you want to install the operating system.

    Note: Windows will create 3 additional partitions, as well as for the installation of the OS. What makes the drive as GPT.

    19 install Windows 8

    20. after the installation and customization of personal settings. Go to control panel > system and you will see

    Windows 8 is activated.

    You can either enable or disable Secure Boot in the bios, as it has no effect on the question of whether or not the operating system will boot. I tried the two enable Secure Boot and disabled, the two parameters allows me the startup of the operating system.

    As Intel 330 SSD, I got two of them and both have no problem running Windows 7 or Windows 8.

    ACHI is necessary if you want to enable TRIM that optimized the SSD automatically when you have to.

    If the TRIM does not work, then it must rely on a Garbage Collection.

    To turn off the SSD on Windows 7, schedule defrag because this will reduce the life expectancy of the SSD

    Windows 8 should because it will recognize if it of a SSD or not. If this is the case, then it will send the TRIM command.

  • My Windows 8 Pro product key does not work to activate my copy of Windows 8 Pro

    My work of Windows 8 product key is not

    Step 1: Yesterday I bought a new hard drive clean Virgin and I bought Windows 8 Pro at a local big-box store. It is a complete copy. Not an upgrade.

    Step 2: I removed all the other my system HARD drives and installed Windows 8 on the new hard drive. The system asked product key. I went in and everything installed perfectly. Windows works fine. I like it.

    Step 3 However, when I went to 'activate' my copy of Windows 8 and I enter this SAME product key, that I used to install I get the following message "this key did not work. Check it out and try again, or try a different key. "I repeated this step at least 4 different times after the reboot. Still does not accept it.

    Question: I can not activate my new copy of Windows 8. How can he accept my key for installation and then NOT accept for activation?



    The problem was solved!

    Step 1: I called Microsoft support MICRSOFT (800)

    Step 2: I navigate through all voice menus for installation tech Support for Windows 8

    Step 3: I explained the problem to the technology (Jerry)

    Step 4: The tech had me find the search function and he get a function of 4 letters (I forgot the command). I executed the function, and I got to a screen that asked me to enter a code for the Microsoft Technical Professional. I entered the 8 digit code that the tech provided for me.

    Step 5: I get to a new screen and technology (Jerry) explains that I am turned on.

    Step 6: I restart my PC and I go to the 'System' page in the control panel and it shows that my copy of Windows 8 is activated!

    The Tech explained that my copy of windows is an "upgrade" version (it isn't) and that is why I got the sentence. I explained repeatedly that it was a COMPLETE copy.  Finally, I dropped my 8 Windows has been activated.

    Call the technical support and good luck!
