    for Windows XP I use OEMBIOS Changer presented by 911medic.
    the tool is posted here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/9795-The-Windows-XP-OEMBIOS-Archive

    You should download the compressed or uncompressed file of your brand, HP, search for ASUS (OEMBIOS.CAT CRC32=2411858C).
    Then install OEMBIOS changer. You have to put either the compressed or uncompressed files (4 in total) into the corresponding folder.
    After that, run OEMBIOS changer and select the suitable options. After installation of OEM:SLP key and the 4 files, you have to reboot with your DMI boot disk.
    Choose the correct option and type sth like DMI /sm "ASUS_FLASH". Press Enter and you will see a thick blue process line and you're done.
    Use OEMBIOS changer as well as MGA Diagnostic tool to check whether it's activated via OEM channel. It should pass online validation and WGA update.

    I have started a thread here before: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/18103-Problems-activating-XP-PRO-with-OEM-keys?highlight=, see #1, #9 and hope it helps.

    You'd better post a few screenshots to show us how the activation status is.

    Run the OEMBIOS.exe tool. You may likely use the ASUS OEMBIOS sets to activate.
