    Are you able to activate it with autokms or pico? Great job playing around with that. Does it make calls to MarkMonitor through IP?

    First sorry for not replying any sooner.

    About the changes, it all depends on what you want , if you are not interested in branding, servicing [ upgrading to higher edition ] and only activation is a concern to you, than the only file you need to change is CoreCountrySpecific-ppdlic.xrm-ms [modded]

    Along with the original files from the dell china iso

    Mount the WIM and backup the following folders

    Under windows Dir.

    Folder Branding.

    Folder servicing.

    CoreCountrySpecific.xml.

    Under Folder System32.

    Folder Licenses.

    Folder spp.

    i have uploaded the delta to convert
    en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso to Win8_64_CCSUS_V1.0.iso.

    As per redroad suggestion i have posted the delta links in this post of Tito's thread.

    To have a country core edition of Windows 8, Not Windows 8 Pro and not just regular Windows 8 "Core" edition.

    @ambidav,

    how did you activate your country specific edition? do you have a laptop that comes with Windows 8 for China originally?

    HI, it seems to be activated with OEM DM keys, so possibly the key is from a laptop, but it is not required to be in china or have any relation to it for activating , it could be done from anywhere.

    I think the problem is caused by the MUI locked oem:Dm keys. May be China Edition oem:Dm keys can't (properly) activate CoreCountrySpecific if language is changed.
