    I got HP notebook with preinstalled Vista Premium OS.
    I decided to install W7 instead of Vista.

    Here is my SLIC descriptions:

    FieldValue
    ACPI Table Properties
    ACPI SignatureSLIC
    Table DescriptionSoftware Licensing Description Table
    Table Length374 bytes
    OEM IDDELL
    OEM Table IDQA09
    OEM Revision42302E31h
    Creator IDNVDA
    Creator Revision0100000Eh

    My question is: Why my OEMID=DELL and not HP?

    Thank you

    Where did you get the Windows 7 installation media? It may have been a modified "pre-activated" one that installs a loader which is set to using a Dell SLIC.

    Yes, you right. I uninstalled the loader.
