Microsoft WGA tool denies Windows Update to work while used on a clone hdd
Posted on 2006-05-25
I need a workaroud to bypass the WGA control while running Windows Update on XPSP2. Actually we only use IBM desktop systems that come with their own genuine XPSP2 preinstalled, but then we apply on them a standard ghost image to avoid installing all the applications every time. Couple of questions:
1) how to bypass the WGA tool check; or
2) how to re-serialize the XP Pro SP2 using the original SN# provided in the sticker glued to the computer case.
Thanks for any help you may provide.
