    More information as to the machine it is on, any other cracks, what have you tried so far.
    Ambiguity is not helpful for troubleshooting..:D:D

    It looks like your only alternative is to try another loader, probably the WOW patch here at the forums. Some have had luck with VL2.0 when the 3.0 does not work.

    Being a dell, it kinda locks you into softmods. Not sure how long these will last or be effective..

    Uninstall the VL before trying any new softmod. VOATKtool works most of the time for removal...A MBR repair may be necessary with the VL3.0..Sorry..:p
