Thanx for the link,but how can i install and activate a genuine xp pro ,and which version should i install please guide ,I have flashed the dell mod now i am ready. .
You seriously need to read the posts in the top few threads, there is all the info you need. Install whichever version you like...
i compiled one oem cd but when installing it asks for cd key i supplied the dell xp pro key but it refuses as ,i have dell slp i inserted dell keys so what to do next,please help....
You need to make sure the setupp.ini pid is *****OEM. If it is VLK or Retail it will not accept the key.
If it is SP3 do not enter key, it is not necessary.
If you change the Setupp.ini, you can then make a .sif file to avoid the key input.
I created a pro oem slp cd with vlk pro sp3 cd from sticky thread ,how do i know that my xp is now genuine and ready for accepting updates i am confused,i can not see any slp 1.0 tab in rw everything is it normal please response...
Now machine restarts in welcome screen please help....in xp..But boots nice in safe mode.
Did you insert the oembios files, do you have a string in bios, it will not show in the rweverything.
Use the tools in the vlk to oem changer. You can use them to check your bios. The oembios.exe will check for strings..
Use the oembios changer tool in safe mode with your oembios files from dell. I think the bios you flashed has a dell string. To check, use the oembios.exe
Yes i have inserted oembios file in to the disk , but the link you gave , had two differen DELLOEMBIOS which one to use 1.DellQ_87870F5A 2.Dell_B6F0EEFD
and why does my pc restarts during boot in welcome screen.
Probably 2 and I dont know why it reboots, unless it throws an error about cant activate correctly.
What did you do, there are thousands of reasons the OS will reboot..If you used a vlk install and a oem serial, it will not allow you into the OS..
I have downloaded the this disc from this thread its XP VL PRO :
as i dont have other xp iso image ,now my question is now with this disc what are the steps should i follow or i have to get other retail iso,home edition please help.
Here are the steps i followed:
1.Extracted the VL PRO disk to XPOEM FOLDER to C drive.
2.Downloaded the OEM FILES and extracted the temp folder and its contents to XPOEM I386 folder.
3.Downloaded OEMBIOS files and copied to XPOEM I386 folder
4.Last step compiled the ISO and installed thats all now machoine restarts on welcome screen.
You're missing those files in I386:
SETUP.INI (example for Asus):
WINNT.SIF (example for Asus):
Without them your XP is still a VLK and won't let you pass the welcome screen.
