    I didnt know where to post this so if any mod feels the need to move this please do .

    I have a dell inspiron 530s desktop pc . thing is that i would like to format and clean install vista home premium again .

    Thing is that i dont have the recovery cds and the recivery partition has been damaged/deleted or both . I have a vista home premium oem cd but it is not dell specific . Now sometime back i managed to add a slic 2.1 table to my other existing pc to be able to install w7 .

    This dell pc came with vista preinstalled so i know that it has the slic 2.0 table . To verify this i used the slic toolkit 3.0 which confirmed this . It also says something about Dell FX09 as pubkey and marker .

    I have found the slp keys on this site but i cannot find the certs ?. help would be greatly appreciated on this issue . Also can i activate vista offline as w7 and are the commands to activate vista offline and insert slp keys the same as for w7 ?

    Hope its not too confusing .

    Help would be greatly appreciated .

    Thanks .

    How about checking the stickies (they are sticky for a good reason!)

    Sticky: Vista OEMSLP Certificate & Bin Collection

    ok thanks for your replyies . i am planning on installing vista so no need for 2.1 table .

    only 2 final questions if i may .

    1 . i know that i have to drop the cert into the root of c: and then run the special command to activate vista offline . do i also have to drop the .bin file into the root of c: ? i'm not quite sure what to do with the .bin file and finally

    2 can i backup my original cert and slp key to be used instead of the ones in the stickies and if so how ?

    once again thanks .

    You know how to copy computer files?
    If yes, then just copy the certificate (NOT the .bin) to local drive (c: or any other)

    Then run command prompt in elevated mode

    slmgr -ilc c:\certificate.xrm-ms

    Sure, use the tool: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/6925
    but it will be exactly the same as the one in stickies (if you have OEM version)

    the one in the stickies says it a

    DELL-DELL-2.0.XRM.MS

    and using slic tool kit it says

    DELL_V2.0_Cert.xrm.ms

    slmgr -ilc c:\DELL.xrm.ms
