    Hi, today i got my new laptop, the factory restore DVD is for Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

    The laptop is a DELL.

    I wish to run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit but it did not come with a 64-bit DVD or any option. I tried to install Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (OEM CD) but it doesnt accept the windows serial key on the inside of the battery compartment of my laptop.

    In the past i took my XP OEM CDs, downloaded some OEM bios files, added them to the file strcuture and remade the ISO, worked great. I was then able to create factory DVDs that would work on specific vendor BIOS so it didnt need a license key.

    I would like to do the same but for Windows 7. I am licensed for Windows 7 from my DELL machine serial sticker, but i am at a loss as howto proceed and convert the OEM Win7 disk into a pre-activated disk for DELL machines.

    Appreciate your comments and help in advance, sorry if newb question.

    Thanks,

    Chris:confused:

    use the OEMSLP key from this forum when you install 64bit and also the certificate..

    You cab also use the dell OEM folder from sources project thread.
