    Hi,
    I have a SLIC 2.1 (Dell) modded BIOS.
    I have Windows 7 RTM untouched ISO.

    I would like to create an "OEM" DVD from the ISO which will enable me to install (and activate offline) using the leaked Lenovo SLP key.
    I don't wish to create a complicated unattended install mechanism which makes modifications to the operating system to my liking.
    I just don't want to have to manually activate by typing commands such as...
    slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\LENOVO.XRM-MS

    I did a similar thing with Vista by adding files such as the following to the correct locations on the DVD...
    [SOURCES][$OEM$]
    [SOURCES]PID.TXT
    [SOURCES][$OEM$][$$][SYSTEM32][OEM]
    [SOURCES][$OEM$][$$][SYSTEM32][OOBE]
    etc...

    Please can somebody help me with instructions on how to do this?

    Is it as straight forward as the Vista method?

    I have read THIS thread which I initally thought was what I wanted but after some time reading I have found it both confusing and possibly more complicated than I actually require.

    Thank you very much for your time.

    I'm not sure I understand. Do you want to be able to include the key for each version in the answer file but still get the screen that let's you choose which to install?

    Or do you want to know how to substitute the Ultimate key for another version key?

    it will be great to choose which version to install. of course we'll have to wait all versions keys but how will be the .xml file with all the keys?
    thank you!

    i cheat a little to have 2 autounattends, i mount the wim and put the xml in windows\panther\unattend in the individual wims and it works for me.

    There are other methods though.

    Use dism to mount your install.wim & add cert & product key.

    ie, for x86 mount index 5 (Ultimate)
    - copy your cert to windows\system32\oem\ folder.
    - add your product key.
    - dismount/commit

    Edit sources\ei.cfg to specify which edition your installing.

    ie,
    [EditionID]
    Ultimate
    [Channel]
    OEM
    [VL]
    0

    Burn this to DVD or copy to bootable USB key... No key entry, activated, no unattends...

    Agreed! Someone should put together a clear, concise, step by step thread on this to end a lot of the confusion and it should be a STICKY too! MODS??? Any chance? There are a few threads about doing a Win 7 OEM disk that have bad info in them and you have to sort through it all.

    PS - Still dearly loving MDL! OK...now repeat after me and say it like Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.....Best Forum Ever!:worthy:
