    Copy the file DELL.XRM-MS to c:\

    On a CMD window (run it as admin) type this:

    slmgr.vbs -ilc c:\DELL.XRM-MS

    Wait for a window to popup

    Accept it.

    Then type this:

    slmgr -ipk *****************************

    wait for about a minute, a windows will pop up.
    Accept it.

    Then restart, open a CMD windows again as admin. And type this:

    slmgr.vbs -ato

    Yes, for Ultimate edition.

    Nothing, ignore it.

    M$ have already announced they will blacklist this key. This does not de-activate but will stop Windows Update. They will also release a Windows Genuine Advantage update - :eek:- which will do something nasty to your OS like make it reboot or show Non Genuine messages.

    The simple answer is turn off all updates until OEM machines start shipping in a few months. When keys which have been shipped with OEM machines start becoming available it is trivial to change the key to the new one without fear of blacklisting.
