    Please have a closer look to SOURCES\$OEM$\$$\SYSTEM32\OEM. Make sure you can see hidden and system folders.

    Anyway if you don´t find it, there is an other way to extract...stay tuned!

    Edit:

    Cert can be extracted from tokens.dat. Please upload it and i will do it for you.

    Or you may try it by yourself: (translated from Japanese)

    Method
    1. Tokens.dat for SOTEC Windows Vista HomeBasic is opened with the binary editor and” OEM Certificate” is searched.
    2. It was found,” the just above” of OEM Certificate” <? xml version= " 1.0 " encoding= " utf-8 "? >” With the character string which is said is searched.
    3. It was found,” directly under” OEM Certificate” </r: license>” with the character string which is said is searched.
    4. The data which is put to the character string which is found every character string of 2 and 3 alias is retained from 2 and 3.
      Example oemcert_sotec.xrm-ms

    Which means: The beginning of cert is:<? xml version= " 1.0 " encoding= " utf-8 "? > and it ends with </r: license>
    Just copy that range into a new file and name it e.g. oemcert_fujutsu.xrm-ms.

    I don´t think so. You can try a fresh install with his VHP on your machine, AFAIK it should activate. The SLIC in bios is for all versions (I don´t know restricted SLIC). But it could be that MS has done some restrictions in an other way.

    You can also try to install from a retail or systembuilder DVD e.g. ultimate version and activate with extracted cert and toshiba ultimate key.

    Hi joemono,

    About the Toshiba oem certifcate you ectracted, did it work?
    What did the system you grabbed the tokens.dat SLIC table read like?
    Can you extract that SLIC table?

    I got 4 sets of oem certificates with coresponding SLIC tables, is yours one of these?

    Code:
    SLIC = TOSCPLTOSCPL00
    OEMCERT CRC = 714A1F77
    
    SLIC = TOSHIBA0044        
    OEMCERT CRC =  8AC3EF1B
    
    SLIC = TOSINVTOSINV00
    OEMCERT CRC =  6E3ACBE4
    
    SLIC = TOSQCITOSQCI00
    OEMCERT CRC =  67C5A9B2

    Did certificate, which Yen extracted work? I tried the certificate and tried to activate but nothing. Here's what I've done:

    1. slmgr.vbs -ilc c:\Toshiba.xrm-ms
    2. C:\windows\system32\slmgr -ipk xxxxx (SN here)
    3. C:\windows\system32\slmgr -ato

    Everything's OK until step 3. It says "Product activation failed". Can somebody help? I'm using Vista Home Premium SP1.
