    On the Lenovo DVD, the Cert was in the boot.wim, in the folder lenovo\$oem$\$$\System32\OEM\lenovo.oemcert.100036.xrm-ms
    And the key is in the file AutoUnattend.xml

    Yes, but that was in Vista. In Windows 7 PID.TXT file will not work, so it would not be there.

    So this Dell you are talking about, it was a vista or Windows 7?

    I was asking this as I might be getting the Dell OEM disk image in about a day or 2 from a friend who works with Dell. If I do get it, and I get the key and cert from it, I will be sure to post it in many places (after I talk to the loader people here first o they can start to integrate it into their loaders)

    well i think 100% sure thing that will work is, install win7 in to VM and then extract cert+key with tools posted on this forum. Lenovo did what was written few posts up, other methos is to insert cert in $OEM$ and set product key with dism that you probably cant read until its installed. So like i said, best way is to install in to VM and then extact it with http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/6925

    I hope you can that OEM DVD fast from your friend because alot of localized ISO's are coming out these days. Would be great if i directly could use a this serial with installing instead of using the Lenovo one.
