    1. Since I don't want to screw up the mainboard of my older VIAO laptop that has XP pre-installed I want to create my own Sony OEM XP-Pro disc. All I need to do is just have to follow the same instructions of the OEM guide in Vista section?

    2. Since I cannot find a cert here in XP Section can i use the Oemdump from Vista section to find get my certificate? Or does it work different when creating a XP-OEM disc?

    Would be glad if someone can help me out here :eek:

    No you cannot use the details posted for making a vista oem disk for xp they use completely different ways of activation. Do you have a sony machine ? or is it home built search forums for OEMBIOS.exe and run that, then post results.
    Wee will go freom there and advise:)

    First of all thanks for the fast reply again Urie! :)

    I have Sony Laptop with XP-home on it... I want to stay with XP on that laptop since the hardwareperformance is not that great for Vista....
    OK i will download that OEMBIOS.exe when I find the time to format that laptop.. Just wanted to have a brief information about the steps of creating OEM XP-Pro disc :D to get all the OEM SLP keys and other information ready before getting started with a clean installation :D

    @ testt0r, ok good so you will have SLP1 in your bios so download as i said oembios.exe it will tell you the crc: and name of oembios files you need to make up your xp oem cd.

    If he has XP preinstalled the correct oembios files can be extracted from the system.
    testt0r, open this folder:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}

    Locate the OEMBIOS.CAT file.
    Add that file to a rar archive.
    Open the rar archive and post the CRC32 value that is furthest to the right
    here.
    I guess the CRC should be 376E13C7 or F08705E9 ...
