Please don't post the same query multiple times. You got answers to
the copy you posted yesterday.

There's so much traffic in this group that it takes a lot of time to
weed through -- don't make it worse by starting duplicate threads.

if your computer is a new purchcased one, contact with your seller.
if your windows is installed with a illegal install cd you cannot pass the
authentication.

Yes it can. I have seen it happen. I have seen legit copies not pass. Both
WPA and WGA are stupid, do not stop piracy, and only affect paying
customers.
