    I was curious if there is a manual method to the OEM Changer Tool. I am using a non-brand OEM disc with an OEM:SLP installed. I have copied the correct oembios files to the correct directories and it still asks me to activate after i have rebooted the computer. Is there some sort of command that must be ran in order to fix that, that the OEM Changer Tool does?

    First thing you should check whether you are having Oem SLP 1 String in your bios with OEMBIOS tool (v1.1) ,as without that you won't be able to activate using this method..And if you have slp 1 string then i think that OEM Changer Tool is very safe and best method..

    oemchanger is a TWO way step if you chose the backup option

    You probably did not run it correctly (if you have the SLP string at all, as sushil1576 said)

    Yep, open it up and read the script. If the order is not followed, you will sometimes be not allowed to log in to the OS. You will end up using the installer script at that point anyway..

    It is a PITA to add manually, you can take just the move script and use that, if you dont want to run the whole installer. The source batch is in the tools folder.
