    Hi,

    I've used vmware convertor to p2v a windows 2003 R2 standard OEM from HP hardware, then I use vmware workstation to play this 2003 image and it asks for license activation.

    Can bios rom for vmware, OEMBIOS and OEM keys can prevent this activation request? How about retail 2003 R2 too?
    Can someone provide a package of vmware rom fo hp, OEMBIOS and keys with steps here?

    Did you also replace the files in c:\windows\system32\dllcache?

    It is really not that difficult...

    Hello,

    Should I copy the 4 OEMBIOS files to C:\windows\system32\dllcache as well?

    How about pidgen.dll and dpcdll.dll, should I find them and replace as well?

    How to change the key as Keyfinder 1.5 / 2.1 cannot update Windows 2003 key?

    Thank you for your information.
