Error Code: Invalid Volume License Key

Error message 2


Error Code: 0xC004F059
Description: The Software Licensing Service reported that a license in the computer BIOS is invalid.


Error message 3

Error Code: 0xc004f035
The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated with a Volume license product key. Volume licensed systems require upgrading from a qualified operating system. Please contact your system administrator or use a different type of key.


This behavior occurs when the following conditions are true:

  • You are using the Key Management Service (KMS) to perform activation.
  • The computer uses an ACPI_SLIC table in the computer BIOS program


The behavior that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section may occur when the Windows marker is missing from the Software Licensing table or when the Windows marker information is present but corrupted. This behavior has been observed for the following BIOS versions of Lenovo portable computers:

  • Lenovo X60 - BIOS : 2.00 (7BETB3BL) 2006-08-07
  • Lenovo T60 - BIOS : 2.00 (79ETB3BL)
