    I have a Dell Win2008 STD DVD, it has the $OEM$ folder with the xrm-ms file in it. I have another MSDN DVD for 2008 Server, that of course doesnt have it. I want to make the MSDN version look like the OEM version (that is, installing from it will SLP activate a server that has a proper SLIC in the bios), without having to use slmgr.vbs afterwards.

    Is this as simple as opening the ISO file of the Dell DVD and inserting the $OEM$ folder into it? Any other files or issues I need to be aware of? Couldnt find anything in a forum search about this.
