    I just tried WOW6 on a DELL 8600... Didn't Work. Even though everything went flawlessly on installation and verbosed correctly, Key/Activation failed. I also tried multiple different keys, warmstarts/restarts/coldstarts... nothing activated V. I'm running Vista ULTIMATE 6002 (SP2)

    I presume if you have an older DELL notebook/lapatop you are SOL.

    Could it be that the latest Vista upgrades block "activation exploit"? There are some reports of broken activation (see WoW thread) after upgrading Vista with newest security patches from March. I presume they are all included in SP2 also.

    See your post right now. Could you confirm my bios is right the hidden one?

    If it is ture, I'll give the asset tool a try.

    PS: My Inspiron 6400 is a free OS (Linux) machine.
