Do i need a dell specific key?
That link is fine i changed it so it reflects the certificate. Either key posted will work but if you want you can just use the Dell key.
There was only one file in the zip.. that correct?
Yes just the Xrm certificate file.
damn! I get the same error msg!! I used the serial key c43gm dwwv8 v6mgy y8qh2
You put that certificate in the root of the drive correct? And deleted the HP one right?
I delete the HP file.. and place ur dell file into c:\
the certificate loads correctly..says correct
its when i place the serial key gives me an error msg.
I can't even see it too small LOL. Try a reboot and retype the key in make sure it's typed in correctly.
error msg i get when key typed
you will never activate OEM with that serial ..... wrong serial
ok which serial should I use?
You need to login to view this posts content.
im assuming thats the key ... same error!! arrrrghh.. this is starting to beat me :S
Did you have any previous lo*ders or anything installed? Before you tried to activate with OEM key?
ya.. but im pretty sure I deleted them.. thats the issue?
That could be an issue. Go reformat and reinstall but save that certificate and that key.
But to be on the safe side when you reinstall on the screen it ask you to go online to get updates hit the no not now button then proceed to finishing the install then you go back through the process of certificate install then key install. Then you can get whatever updates are there on WU.
Dammn i just dont get it why i wont work.. I cant really format my computer :S
I wonder if its just the serial key doesnt work...
I guess ill have to wait until oct for a key.. :S
I hate when this s**t beats me :S
Why can't you reformat?
heres another wierd message
That Dell key is fine. I am thinking it has something to do with a previous lo*der install.
