License Status: Notification
Notification Reason: 0xC004F032.

the easy fix is to change your product key to the one on your COA. Your computer is not able to properly communicate with its slic table.

lets try recreating the licensing store:

Recreate the Licensing Store

    1) Click Start button.

    2) Type: CMD.exe into the 'Search programs and files' field

    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator

    4) Type: net stop sppsvc   (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)

    Note: the Software Protection service may not be running, this is ok.

    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar

    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32

    8) Type: net start sppsvc

    9) Type: slui.exe

    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key or Activation may occur automatically.

 

Reboot, then run MGADiag again, and post the report


you might try a good light and a strong magnifier to read the key.
