    Hi all,

    I've got an original XP Pro OEM cd, but no key.
    There is nothing like SLIC in my bios, and I don't want to flash it.

    What would be the best method to get it activated?

    Thanks

    el6, why bother with this hack when one can have legit OEM activation with minimal fuss?
    Did you notice that this post is over 2.5 years old? The times moved since then...

    This is the worst excuse I have seen here..I would certainly not recommend it..If you have your heart set on one of these nefarious activations, download my tool and see in the activation tools folder...it is much better and will not harm the system..

    I still do not condone it, it is there for mucked up activation attempts and X64 stuff. A side effect is it works amazingly well on 32 bit all flavors of XP..

    This makes changes to my bios, but if nothing can go wrong...

    My bios: "Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6"

    This does NOT make any changes to your BIOS, it only writes the stuff to DMI area

    Better state what board you have

    I do not care about the BIOS, what motherboard is it?
    You can also get it from Everest

    Come on you know the script here we go round in circles you already stated it mods dmi area not bios some peeps will never take a risk even if there is no risk ;) Once dmi area has been written to it will be what next. Been there for a few years :D

    This MSI board?? If this is a K8 Neo, there are many bios already made for this, flashed and tested as safe..At any rate, the DMI disc should work with this board..NO RISK other than DMI not written...:cool:

    If you dont want to try this, we are done here...;)

    I've tried it first on an old PB-laptop. It worked!
    I will try it on my normal pc. If it works with PB, it will work with everything..

    EDIT:
    Did it! That oembioschanger program says:

    Check it with OEMBIOS.exe after you use the HP dmi tool

    I've checked it with another computer. Only the manufactor was set there too.

    Here the result of OEMBIOS.EXE again:
    That ones should do, but which of the three?

    Choice is yours (not that difficult?), any will do

    It is "or" logic, not "and" logic...:cool:

    Any SLP in the right range works..only one is needed..
