    View attachment ACER_ALL_$OEM$.zip

    Download the attached file. Use any ISO editing tool such as UltraISO. Take a fresh 7 installation iso, remove sources\ei.cfg and paste the included $OEM$ folder in sources. Then u can install & auto-activate all 5 editions of 7 in any Acer 2.1 SLIC enabled pc ;) :D

    Thank for helping. I'd like to avoid that method because i've already set my product key using dism. Plus, that way you are not able to put a clean and unactivated edition in your wim file, as oobe.cmd will always be executed.

    Can i simply put my certificate file in C:\offline\Windows\System32\OEM? (install.wim mounted in C:\offline)

    I noticed your conversation over on MSFN you are using your OEM:COA key that is the wrong key you should be using OEM:SLP key.

    Ok i'm going to test it right now in a separate partition. Out of curiosity, why OEM:COA key can't be used? I successfully activate my copy by phone with it. Why OEM:COA + cert will not work?

    SLIC 2.1 + Cert + OEM:SLP = Activated

    Marker + OEM:COA = Activated

    No other combinations will work ;)

    Marker is a portion of a valid SLIC :)

    Pls try out my first suggestion ~ too simple ;)

    It works using dism to set the product key OEM:SLP and adding my cert file to the offline image. Your first suggestion (zip archive with $oem$ folder) is good, but has some cons:

    1) you cannot have a not activated version of windows 7 in the same wim file
    2) works only for acer (what if you want to add a custom windows 7 edition for - say - an HP machine?) you cannot mix edition for different manufacters
    3) forces you to leave the dvd in the tray until you see the desktop for the first time
    4) add a small delay in oobe
    5) ask for product key in oobe - i guess

    pro:

    1) no need to mount a wim file
    2) ??

    But you pointed me in the right direction so a big thank you :worthy:

    Wow I cant believe the mess this forum is in. Someone asks a simple question and gets a dozen answers, that provide absolutely no insight whatsoever. :eek:

    @Greemo, send me a private message with your questions and I'll reply with the answers your looking for.

    @MDL Admins. Nice forum with lots of info, but theirs no consistency with the information, it's like a free for all and full of miss guided information. Wow, I can really help allot of miss guided people here, hope I'm not to late. I notice a lot of Pro-Piracy threads, I wont bother with those, It's not my style.
