    Have you tried???:D

    Did you have OEMBIOS changed to DELL??

    Do you have a Dell SLP string?? (I am sure you do)

    If you followed the guide, then you also copied a txt file (winnt.sif i I recall correctly) that enters the serial for you, so to speak. If you open the file up, you can see exactly what it does; which is doing an unattended install and hence installs without you having to input lots of things. If you want to install Windows and make all the regular selections, just delete this file before installing. And yes, if you followed the guide, WGA won't be a problem.
