Windows XP Producy Key / ID Changer
Posted on 2006-06-21
A long time ago I had a customer who needed about 75 new XP workstations. They stayed legal and purchased 75 copies of WIndows XP Professional and the COA's are attached to each workstation.
When I set them up (my bad) I installed the Windows XP Professional Corporate Edition on one computer, got it just the way I wanted it and then cloned this one computer to the other 74.
Now all 75 of them are receiving the Windows Genuine Advantage Valiodation Error and the Counterfit notification. I am looking for a utility that I can run that will let me put in the COA Product Key attached to the compute, do what ever it needs to to Windows and then let me activate that new product key and copy of Windows over the internet.
I have seen several hacks that profess to do this but none work. I was kind of hopeing that Microsoft might have come out with one for people who were never legal in the first place.
Anyone have any idea if a utility like this exists and is verified to work? Thanks!
