    Which part is so difficult?

    SLP 1.0 in BIOS/DMI + SLP key + oembios.* set that corresponds to SLP 1.0 = OEM offline activation

    All in the stickies:
    DMI Boot CD for Award-AMI-Intel BIOS
    Collection of XP OEM SLP keys
    The Windows XP OEMBIOS Archive

    I had to read the stickies several times before it all starts to make sense. The first step is to download and run OEMBIOS.EXE the oembios tool linked in the first sticky. The CRC result tells you which set of OEMBIOS files you need.

    Yep..and if nothing shows, you need to add the SLP string of your choice...
