    Hi

    I have managed to successfully create PRO OEM SLP CD for XP pro SP3 following the thread on MDL
    I was wondering is it possible to do a similar process for XP home ?
    If so what ammended files need to go in the i386 folder this time ?
    and can I use the OEM manufacturers bios files in the existing Pro thread for Home as well ?
    finally can I use the existing COA key on the PC or like the XP pro process is there a specific OEM key that I use ?

    regards :)

    Yes you can make xp home sp3 OEM:SLP cd using existing 4 oembios files used for pro version. What you cannot use is OEM COA key you need OEM:SLP.

    Hint for XP OEM:SLP keys;) download VLK-and-OEMBIOS-changer... unpack it and you will find keys.txt file.

    also if you have an existing xp OEM:SLP windows installation you can download this OEMBIOS-Backup

    Thanks for the prompt reply urie. So if Ive got this right I add the 4 oembios files to I386 folder and change
    the key to which ever is needed to match manufacturer in the WINNT.SIF file ?

    Also in the original create pro oem xp tutorial it mentions copying over the other oem files as well to I386 but I am presuming these are dedicated to a pro disc not a home one ?

    Home only has two editions, Retail & OEM. So just changing the oembios files & editing the setupp.ini will do the job!! U can follow Retail Pro to OEM Pro section of the tutorial ~ same procedure!!

    Thanks for the reply Tito but I can see no reference to editing the setupp.ini within that tutorial ?
    What exactly is edited within that file please?
