    Hey everyone, I need to know how to make XP oem disks. I got the BIOS, now what? I read somthin about expander, but wasnt able to get a download. Please explain what I need to change on a generic OEM disk to make it work and legally activate with a HP key.

    Learn about torrents and download an original HP XP OEM ISO from The Pirate Bay.

    Dont' try and advertise torrent links on this forum it is against the rules. PM the person with link that is ok:)

    911medic, posted links to give information on OEM bios files , search on this forum how to make an OEM XP cd, just wished he had been around when i started, he has given you good links start reading :))
    and even a better link to OEMScan which makes it a lot easier i,e, you can make one windows xp cd that will work on lots of OEM machines ;))

    1. get the installation files for XP, from the internet, from another manufacturer OEM disc, etc.

    2. Get OEM Files for HP (either from the HP machine running XP or from the internet).

    (if necesary, compress files with makecab.exe).
    Oembios.*
    Dpcdll.dl_
    NT5inf.ca_
    Pidgen.dll
    Setupp.ini

    3. Get the XP product key, either from the sticker on the PC (not recommended), or scan the registry of the working XP installation for the HP OEM Key in use.

    4. Integrate files into installation dir eg: X:\i386

    6. Slipstream SP3 if needed.

    5. Burn cd and install.

    Actually, I didn't offer a link of any kind. But I do know there are torrents w/ the desired payload. One must do the search oneself.

    Here is a totally legal link (to MDL) which has been pretty helpful. 'Suicide Solution' (gotta love that handle) has some files ready-made to patch into an OEM disc, which will cover several OEMs, including HP/Compaq.

    I've had some modest success w/ his work....:-- MR --:
