    Anyone here have any XP Home disks, restore disks, or non USA Home XP disks?

    If so, check the crc value of PIDGEN.DLL that is loacted inside the I386 folder, and see if it has a different crc value than the ones I have below. If one is different, would you please upload it to rapidshare for me?

    CRC values of the files I have are below. If you are not sure about CRC, or dont know what that is, dont worry about it and I will check it myself.

    Code:
    _________________________
    Service Pack | CRC Value
    _________________________
        SP0        5DEFA16A
        SP1        9766A501
        SP2        40915CEA
        SP3        173E5549

    Why don't you extract them from the different service packs?:p:D

    I tried the Chinese SP3 already. The Chinese Home PIDGEN has the same crc as the English, however the PRO file has a different crc, but only accepts the same keys as the English PIDGEN, and wont show output data to the keys you find on a lot of Chinese sites. I think the file I need will be on a real SP0 through SP2 Asus Home Edition restore disk or a Chinese OEM disk with volume label VRMHOEM_CN.

    The Pro PIDGEN that I attached in the XP SLP thread has a md5 hash of the file details below:

    VRMPOEM_CN fbdc916ba9c793605177fb9ba1a6273e PIDGEN.DLL 5.1.2600.2180

    So, I think the file I need is the Home Chinese OEM version from this hash:

    VRMHOEM_CN 0157cb15be7afcfd1d593f16d7ecbb7d PIDGEN.DLL 5.1.2600.2180

    You can upload that PIDGEN however and i will test it out.

    Any luck?
    i contacted someone who has been busy with a project like this one overseas, maybe he can help...

    Don't you need the matching dpcdll.dll and setupp.ini files as well? (i think it failed when i tried to activate only by replacing the pidgen.dll file)

    I don't know if it will help or not but I have access to a XP Home SP1 or SP2(I know it's not SP3) Toshiba recovery disc. The image is in a .GHS format which I read is a Norton Ghost format. I installed Norton Ghost but I still can't browse the files contained within it. Any ideas on how to extract the PIDGEN.DLL

    It would have to be the specific Chinese version listed above.

    That would be the file. Now the Home Asia keys work. I added all the files needed and re-uploaded the attachments. Thanks for the help with the files.

    Now the weird part. The asia MCE key required the Home PIDGEN file when testing instead of the PRO.

    Lets say someone has a English OEM slipped to SP3, and if setup requires a SP3 PIDGEN file in place, one can add the unique Chinese BINK to a English SP3 PIDGEN, then run MODIFYPE and it should work. What do you think Freestyler?

    I have and can add all the different BINKS into one "super" PIDGEN file for the tester to reduce the files, but its handy to have each one named for each version as a easy way to see which version each key is for.

    What I would love to see the author do with CHKPIDS is a simple GUI based app, which when used with an PIDGEN with all the BINKS added, read a key, check the 1st 5 digits of the PID output, see that its a match for say Home, then display Home Edition.

    I think you are being fooled by some hardcoded values again, at the time of writing there were no PIDS in the 800+/300+ range that suited the XP Pro and Home editions so if i look at the source in the checkpids package you posted elsewere on these forums i suspect the author automaticly asumes it's a MCE key when in the PIDS are 800+ range... guess for the Asia keys this is little different... don't believe a Home key can be used to activate MCE so this seems like an error in checkpids.

    Code:
            if (z>=300 && z <=399) printf("Tablet:");
            else if (z>=800 && z <=899) printf("MCE:");
    Can't get in contact with the author, seems he isn't active anymore on the forum you got the package/source for checkpids

    Yeah I went back and checked again and noticed that the AMOI & TCL Asia MCE keys I had listed, required the Home file you posted and the HP MCE Asia key required the Pro so I moved the other two as Asia Home keys. Most of the MCE keys do have the last three digits in the 800's. Thanks for the info.

    Do you need corresponding keys and discs/isos with XP? for example, if you have an XP Pro Japanese product key, can you use this key to install with a regular English disc?

    also, if you have an XP Pro Retail product key, can you use that key in conjunction with an OEM XP disc (that does not have the product key integrated already)?
