    will oem keys work with windows vista sp2 rtm msdn version?
    My father has bought this notebook and i tried to activate vista sp2 with several activators, and none of them worked?

    you need to insert the vista key file to activate it together with the right oem key.

    hi there, i have a hp 6730s, and i solved the problem by updating the bios firmware from hp website and then i did the job with WoW6.0.1, take a look here.

    This will emulate a HP complete SLIC table and this is better than trying to mod the bios :)

    I guess this is the only solution if your laptop doesn't have an OEM for vista on the backside..

    Good luck!
