    svctag.exe must be run in DOS environment, not from WINDOWS because it can be error within WINDOWS environment. I already made it with my friend's 1440.
    1. create bootable USB with extracted content from the image.
    2. copy all other file of extracted content to the USB but DO NOT REPLACE ANY EXISTING FILES (these files - MSDOS.SYS, IO.SYS, COMMAND.COM - immigrateed by format tool such as HP USB Format Tool).
    3. Boot your 1440 with the USB and re-enter Service Tag. That's all

    Can anyone confirm their Inspiron 1440 with bios A.07 did the MS web activation OK? Seems some Dell systems are SLIC 2.1 activated appearing as "licensed" but fail the web based check as explained here.

    Just burn the image to disc & boot from it.
