    Download this utility. There is a text file inside it with all slp keys ~ but you need to change the pid value to accept oem:slp serial :)

    i have copied the oem set into the iso, now i'm lost in trying to incorporate the iastor drivers into the install part of the install, everytime i manage to enter into txtsetup.sif it boots starts the install them comes up with the error - value 0 on the line line in section [winntdirectoreies] with key "1984." i have searched the sif file but there is nothing there if somebody could help me here i would be very gratefull..

    i must say the other mce iso's i have done wasnt this hard, why do dell and sony etc set the sata ports to ahci them hide that section in the bios so u cant change it to ide is beyond me
