    Does it possible to add to normal VBox distribution BIOS the string like:

    "SLP1.0_Content____XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" ?
    52-bytes length

    Will be really usufull for anyone who needs to run VM-image of old PC.
    For example for old archive and SW-environement reconstruction purposes.

    You can insert SLP manufacturer strings by modifying DMI settings of the VM (see the manual).

    The string you are showing looks like the one used by Microsoft for the Windows XP mode feature of Windows 7. That one cannot be inserted through the configuration, but needs hard patching one of the DLL files (or the BIOS).

    Sorry to bother with probably an obvious question, but I'm having the hardest time finding a correct tutorial/guide that will work on modern virtualbox versions for activating 7 OEM. I'm going for a Dell Bin activation, and have set the "CustomTable" property so that SLIC ToolKit shows an OK dump: DELLE2_V2.1. Activation still fails with error code C004E003.

    Edit: Figured it out, there are still several commands you need to run. Would be nice if someone could pin a tutorial! From an elevated command prompt:

    slmgr.vbs -cpky
    slmgr.vbs -upk
    slmgr.vbs -ilc
    "path to the .xrm-ms file associated with your SLIC bios"
    slmgr.vbs -ipk "the product key you're trying to activate"
    slui (to activate)

    .xrm-ms is not the SLIC bios, but the OEM certificate. SLIC bin is defined in VM settings (as ACPI Custom table), to be loaded into the VM environment. You could also use Windows Loader to insert cert+pkey (Loader will not be installed if SLIC is present).

    After Searching Many Topics, I Can't Find Any Detailed Guide For Adding SLP Strings For Phoenix Bios Of VMware v (9 - 10 - 12 - 15),

    The Members Here Are Talking Like They Were Born With That Knowledge Already. The Written Notes\Tips About That Subject, Don't
    Offer Screenshots Or Even Videos About " How to Add SLP String Of Any OEM To Phoenix Bios Of VMware v9.x ~ v15.x.x".

    I've Also Tried To Speak With Members Who Wrote Short Notes About That Topic. No One Answers To My Conversation Requests.

    For The God's Sake What Happened To That Forum ? Is Everyone Happy With Blocking Knowledge From Each Other And Treating
    His Knowledge Like Military Secrets ?? I'm Trying So Hard To Learn Anything But No One Have The Willing To Help Me.

    Or The Seniors\Gurus\Whatever, Think More Highly Of Themselves To Not Answer The Requests\Questions Of Newbies In This Forum
    Because They're Not On The Same Level Of Knowledge With Novice Members Here In That Forum ?????????????

    P.S. The Searching Feature Of The Forum Didn't Help Me Either Because (SLP) Is Too Short Than 4 Letters To Return Results Successfully.

    Sorry, you are in the wrong topic (this is the VirtualBox topic, not VMWare). VirtualBox doesn't require hard-patching any BIOS files.

    Personally, I cannot answer your questions as I don't use VMWare.
