I just ran this and it told me the update was already installed, proceeded to download xp mode from MS site and no issues there. I don't see it deactivating any of the systems with SLICs that I have.
A) We've known about WAT for months
B) We're getting sick of "IT'S GOING TO KILL EVERYTHING THE SKY IS FALLING" threads.
It won't neccessarily deactivate EVERY BIOS mod, and the date idea is pure speculation and extremely unlikely from a technical standpoint.
Good to know. I'd like to know what I did wrong then.
Oh, didn't realize it deactivated you. It works if you have been out of grace period, thats how it knows. It works out that no OEM system would have been out of grace period.
probably the blacklisted Levono key dude. Maybe get a new bios mod and use a different key and that may fix your issue.
I installed a Dell key and a Dell cert with Opatool on a Dell slic modded bios on a Dell laptop. Windows 7 updates with no problems after using Opatool. So far Windows is still activated and has no watermarks until I install the validation update. I had to revert to my backup image to get back to normal. I'm just curious is to why some bios mods take and others do not with this validation update.
You can also simply rearm to become genuine again.
Well you could start with if you had dell slic 2.0 say DELL-PE_SC3-DELL slic and you used DELL-CL09-LTP, but personally no problems this side on inspiron 530. Heard all this panic for last few months my wife is still running a ASRock flashed bios with no problems up till now, validated through MS i still think glitches on MS side.
I agree urie,
This seems to be a problem with the WAT Validation System itself, as some Legit OEM PC's are still being flagged as Non-Genuine.
Dude , dont use such titles without searching the problem deeply pls
This could be the problem. I just did a fresh install and updated just the drivers. Then I ran Opatool and installed the Dell cert. Rather than use the default key in Opatool I used the Dell OEM key that is posted elsewhere here. I didn't bother to do any updates or install any other software. I cut to the chase and installed the activation updater from MS. This time the activation updater didn't squawk and the MGADiag program from MS said it was genuine. So who knows what cause my install to become dirty over the last 7 months or so. I could be my security software got in the way of the validation checker, setting off a false alarm. At least now as far I know I didn't do anything wrong. And there's nothing wrong with my bios.
Probably using the lenovo key unknowingly.
It reads like scare tactics, doesn't it? ;D
Yeah, the title is quite embarassing. Such titles should only come after confirmation. The purpose for this is just to create unneccessary panic. Too bad!
Lucky for you mods have the power to change titles
What are you talking about? Well it happened to me. It's not going to happen to everyone. But it's going to bite a few. Nothing wrong with a warning.
XP mode is not worth any hassle, most things work just fine. If you really need XP, just use VMware or Vitualbox, they are better.
