    Hi
    I will be getting a HP G61-320 laptop however I would like to downgrade it to winxp sp3.

    I do not have HP oem windows xp sp3 disc

    1. can I convert my DELL oem windows xp sp3 disc to HP? If yes what is the procedure?

    2. Or can I just convert the DELL oem windows xp sp3 to universal oem disc by
    using OEMScan v1.3 RVM Integrator Addons
    or
    OEMScan - Automated Multi Manufacture Pre-Activation Utility method using command line.

    Please advice since i am new to this.

    Thanks.

    I would suggest using an untouched copy of Win XP SP3 OEM. That way you avoid all the extra stuff that is likely to be on the Dell disk. You can find links for it here:

    To make it self activating you will need to add a WINNT.SIF file and change the OEMBIOS file set on the CD.

    Alternatively you can use the CD without modification and then use 911medic's VLK and OEMBIOS changer to get it to activate. Just install it and follow the instructions. You can find it here:-

    you do not need the .sif file for auto activating..but you will have to input the serial and other thinks as prompted.

    OEMBIOS files can be changed on the disk to suit whatever OEM you have...it is that easy!!!(just use the compressed files for the disc)
