How to validate Windows 7 after failed activation related to ‘Display Images Enabled: Failed”?

Hey guys, I’m getting a failed activation for Windows 7 64-bit.

It’s a valid Technet subscription key, so it should work. But Technet keys don’t allow telephone activation.

I made several mistakes, such as using an older disk that didn’t include service pack 1. It validated, but after installing SP1, it then lost validation. I then let the 30-day activation period lapse, so now some features inside of Windows are no longer working. It’s also reporting that the installation isn’t genuine.

I ran the validation diagnostic tool ( and it reported that everything was working with the exception of “Display Images Enabled: Failed”.

How do I validate this copy without reinstalling the OS?

Thanks for your help!
