    Hiya,

    I have just finished installing Dell Windows Ultimate on Alienware M11x R1 and it shows windows need to be activated in 3 days.

    I have used the same dvd on other laptops without any problems. Any idea how can I fix this?

    Thanks :worthy:

    Did you activate it on the other laptops? Have you tried to activate it on the Alienware? If so by what method?

    Alienware uses its own SLIC, not Dell's. So you need Alienware cert.

    Look Windows-7-OEM-SLP-Key-Collection you will find alienware OEM:SLP key there for ultimate but keys are not brand specific any OEM:SLP ultimate key should work, But as Tito mentioned alienware does not use dell certificate it has its own you can get certificate from archive posted here
    or just download Daz loader it will install correct certificate and serial number it will not install loader because you have slic 2.1 in bios.

    P.S. to activate you need OEM:SLP key + 2.1 certificate + SLIC 2.1 information in bios you cannot just use OEM:SLP key to activate.
    Look at Vista-OEM-Activation-How-it-Works
