Windows 7: No Background after RFM thing ... on RC1

No Background after RFM thing ... on RC1

I managed to activate the inbuilt security bs even though I have a legit key off the Microsoft beta website and now I don't have a background .
The security bs disabled it and no matter what I do it won't come back , group policy doesn't even work (setting it through that)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

rfm

happens after a failed activation, or when a build is timebombed. since you are runnning 7100 (it doesn't expire untill 3/10) I suspect the activation. You can go into event viewer (start>sarch>type event viewer>windows Log>application tab. look for info, or errors that have rfm in the subject

let us know what the results are

Windows license is invalid. Error 0xC004F012. Policy Value 0x00000000.

and

Windows is in Notification period. (last time this occured was 6/9/2009 - 2 days ago in australia, this shouldn't be occuring at all tho cause it's activated already )

You may want to consider upgrading to 7600 Enterprise ... 7100 had known issues that 7600 has fixed. Get the 90day evaluation copy -=> Here

Looks good to me. sometimes validation fails if the computer clock is off. If off by more than a little the OS thinks you have set the clock back to avoid expiration and enters rfm mose. Not likely but it does happen
