    started it up to update things and boom non genuine. checked everything and it was fine. again this was a legit retail technet key. i went and clicked activate online and it fixed itself. but yeah weird that a technet key would do this and no this key has never been shared to anyone anywhere...im trying to figure out what caused it in the meantime

    To deal with products from troublesome M$, just install a loader and it helps everything :p

    lol, I'm thinking that MDL members always make great loaders against M$ Windows so they might hate those who have genuine keys, don't they? :p

    I wonder if that is an error. Do you want me to try to activate with that MAK key and see what happens?

    Nah, I'll just install Enterprise using vmware later and then just attempt to activate it with the key. If it works then it works, if not then it does not. I doubt M$ would blacklist it though cause it was not leaked. My guess it is just a vamt error.

    yeah this was MY TECHNET account. my own personal one. the keys were NEVER used other than one time on one system. not even activated twice. so far only one was knocked off but i just clicked activate online and so far all is okay again. im not sure what happened. the service was not set to manual either i checked that.

    brainsuck you mean your technet keys are being blacklisted? or just the mak key? what about the regular retail use ones. hers was only running premium and i have only used 4 of my 10 premium keys so far even. all single uses and single activations so far. now my daughter is only 4 but she is locked with parental controls so i know she cant change things she shouldnt have.

    EDIT I KNOW WHAT HAPPEND its actually my fault. i forgot she wanted me to change her bios bootup screen for her like i have in the past to have her name inside mickey ears lol instead of what i had it with just a picture of mickey now that she is starting to read she wanted her name in there (i know but she she likes it lol). it went non genuine after flashing the bios which prior was modded with a lenovo slic table but not activated with a oem slp key. so after flashing the bios it went non genuine which is does happen sometimes after a bios flash.

    I think it is only his MAK key that blocked it. I personally checked his key and it is blocked!

    Holy s**t guys. Are you serious? Your completely legitimate (as in you actually paid money for it) Technet Plus subscription Windows 7 Enterprise MAK was blacklisted??? Really?

    I have used mine once and if it gets blacklisted there will be no end to the hell I'll raise. I paid a substantial amount of money for it and have not and will not ever abuse it. If they are blacklisting legitimate users there is going to be a serious s**t storm.

    Odd that you'd get on the blacklist radar for just 1 or 2 activations. You'd think that one of the biggest uses of Technet keys would be for testing automated MAK activation scenarios and those would quickly add up.

    Incidentally, how many activations are the Technet Plus 7 and Vista Enterprise MAKs good for? I've heard people say 10, 50 and 500 on different occasions.
