    I did, it didnt work though.

    The only difference is I used 1.7 daz on the first, 1.8 on this one.
    It wasn't in his post anymore.

    i have found sometimes it will need to be rearmed. if you are outside the 30 day period sometimes it will not accept a oem slp key properly. from command prompt run this command:

    slmgr /rearm

    then reboot (i recc 2 reboots myself) then change the key to the dell one.

    I have an XPS420...
    I just used the BIOS mod off this website (worked perfectly) and used the SLIC 2.1.

    I used Daz program for the key.

    Cheers.

    Absolutely. Even I had to re-arm Windows even though I have SLIC 2.1 BIOS and had put in the correct Dell OEM Certificate and an OEM SLP Key (7 Ultimate) to make it work.

    I'll try a rearm and all when I get a chance, the dudes away on a lil holiday, didn't know to Monday there.

    When I am able to I will see if I can get it sorted for him.

    I'll post back with results then, thanks guys.

    Hope bumping is ok but we rearmed it and uninstalled the key, reinstalled it, rebooted and bingo, job done. :)

    Thanks again guys.

    If you see nonsense message about running a "non-core edition" of Windows get spat out when you run slmgr, you 99 percent have the wrong certificate file, please get another certificate file and try again.

    Apologies for the necro-post but google led me straight here... I hit a major snag doing my first hardmod (Windows 7 had been installed and activated for quite a while using a different a key, offline activation worked but WAT bit me with the same "loader detected" error code seen here )... this post is the first indication I saw that one needs to re-arm for OEM activation to go smoothly off a non-fresh install. (Even though it seems kind of obvious in hindsight...) After re-arming it was pretty much instantly recognized as genuine -- is this tidbit noted in any of the stickies?
