    Unfortunately I have bought a board without the Manufacture or model number in the bios, ASrock Fatat1lty Z68 GEN3
    After installing Win7 Ultimate 7601 and using WinLoader it passed activation ok but I still had 30 days left to acivate.
    I overcame this using WinLoader, it shows as activated now not 30 days but still shows after running AIDA64 as motherboard unknown and in Windows Perfomance and System info as "to be filled by OEM"
    I flashed with latest bios from ASrock via USB stick which didn't work and ended up with short looping starts (bad download?). The bios chip is socketed so I programed it externally and now is ok.
    Is there a way to change the motherboard to show the Manufacturer/Model?

    As far as I know the manufacturer or model number have no effect whatsoever on the activation.
