My specific App Store can't login problem

Question

Dear all,

I got this when I was trying to login Mac App Store "Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance."

I know that add EthernetBuiltIn/Yes to com.apple.Boot.plist and delete/re-add interfaces in Network.prefPane should fix the problem. But not with any luck, I still can't login.

Here the situation is, in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist I got only one interface, the WIFI card which is a mini PCI-E unloaded from a MBP, it's driver is the stock unchanged Apple "AirPort_AthrFusion21" in Lion GM vanilla installation. In this plist file, I can see that the OS treat the WIFI card as BuiltIn already. I don't know why this still can't get me logged in.

Another tip, I can't sign in to mac app store since my upgrade to 10.6.8, it seems to be so. And before my failed login and after 10.6.8 upgrade, my old wifi card (a DWA 552, not the current one unloaded from MBP) was broken, that means my current Ethernet/Wifi MAC address is different from my last success login with MAS, I suspect that Apple stores users' ethernet MAC address? And also, I have a mac mini, I used my MAS account on that a bit too. Don't know if there is anything on this.

Appreciated for any help and hints :)

Problem solved by adding

<key>PCIRootUID</key>

<string>0</string>

in com.apple.Boot.plist

all because that I am using a gigabyte mb.

thanks all for helping?

I had the same issue but I didn't have to add that string to my boot.plist to fix it. I ended up removing my NetworkInterfaces.plist as well as all devices in the Network preferences. On reboot I enabled my onboard LAN in the BIOS. Once it started it picked up the LAN first and then my WiFi card. This got the app store to accept my credentials.
