I have an IBM T42 with a VL Windows XP. How would i go about switching this to an OEM and keep the OS working? Can that be done? And if that can be done, can you switch a working XP install that is already set up as oem to another manufacturer oem? For example, if I get this T42 to work as an OEM IBM install. Could I then ghost the image to say a Dell (assuming i have the correct controller drivers alareadu installed) and once it's ghosted over, then swap out the necessary oem files to now make it pre-activated under a Dell SLP? I am interested in this because I have created a hardware independent Win XP image that I can ghost to multiple different systems, and it works just fine. Problem is, I built it on a T42 with using a XP OEM CD that I created with the info from this site. So it works great on multiple IBM/Lenovo systems, but if I ghost it to Dell, and several other manufacturers, while the system boots just fine, it's (of course) no longer genuine, and is not activated. So I was hoping to then be able to replace whatever files are needed in order to turn this into a pre-activated oem Dell image. Thanks for any help!
