    hello guys,

    i downloaded this Win Vista sp1 with activator in a torrent site. My problem is, its activator does not work on my lappy. the uploader is really helpful but gave up already. he said, it is possibly bios related that prevents it from activation.

    i tried lookin up for forums that can possibly help me. and ended up here. hope u can help me guys. btw, i tried the activation keys on the sticky thread, but it did not work for me. the PID does not match mine is probably the problem. Im desperate, even if my vista can not update, its ok.. just to lose that 30 day trial period. but if i can update, the better.

    Im sorry, im not that techie, but i can understand a bit.

    thanks in advance guys...

    Happy New Year!

    Without it?
    You mean you've tried the boot version (CD/ floppy)? And if you remove it it isn't activated anymore?

    You have to install WoW permanently using the NOMBR Auto Installer Version.
    Locate the hidden systemfile bootmgr .
    Double click on WoW6.0_NOMBR_HP.exe , choose as installation path the root directory where bootmgr is located (C:\ or wherever else....) after that REBOOT

    You've activated it already, you just have to install it permanently. After deinstallation of WoW, your system is of course un-activated.

    Thanks Yen,

    Ill outline what should i do.. im just confused on the WoW procedure in the sticky thread.

    1. I DLed the floppy WoW version and installed it in my USB thumb drive.
    2. boot up with this thumb drive.
    3 DL the NombR.exe thing
    4. locate the bootmgr system file
    4. run this nombr.exe and install it in the bootmgr
    5.reboot

    illupdate if this works..

    thanks

    EDIT:
    I cant seem to find the WoW6_NOMBR.exe in the WoW thread.. ionly DLed the ff files:

    1. WOWfloppy_6.0_auto_HP
    2. WoW6.0debug2
    3. WoW6.0_NOMBR_HP

    EDIT again:

    oops, sorry, found it.. so it was the file itself. coz i thought i should extract it 1st
