    Hello,

    Is it possible to create a Windows Server 2003 (R2) ISO which will auto-activate on my Dell computer?

    OEMBIOS does show this:
    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=63875D1F
    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=B6F0EEFD

    1. Convert the retail to OEM; see here & here.

    2. Or read this post carefully; Standard Dell media can be easily made.

    Does the Dell media auto-activate on my Dell computer with the following output from OEMBIOS?

    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=63875D1F
    F: Dell System OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=B6F0EEFD
