    I have recently flash my bios which is Award/AMI i think, p4spooky, have patched it, (ASUS M3A78 Pro bios version 0902) ----> See: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/59060

    I have see here, somes OEM SLP Keys, (for win 2003 x64) but for a diffrent brands (HP, DELL etc) And not for ASUS....

    My Question is:

    If i have flashed correctly the BIOS (SLIC) can i use these keys for i can activate the Windows Server ?

    Hmmmm, so i must flash again, with the help of your file?

    Then? (I Will Install Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 SP2)

    Where is the link for the HP SLP OEM Key for i can use it?

    ( By the way, thanks for your help, i will report it back, when i will finish the flash, and the os installation :) )

    Finally i have get the point :)

    i will flash the bios with your file

    I will slipstream the win 2003 sp2 R2 Enterprise with my drivers, and when i will extract the iso, i will copy/paste the x64 oem files from http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/4693

    then, i will use the dell oem key, and will be ok

    i hope this is the right proccedure :)

    Thanks for your help offon7544 :) You are amazing :)

    Depends what media you have (SP1 only or SP1 disk1 and R2 disk2)
    Remember that:
    key, setupreg.hiv, pidgen.dll, dpcdll.dl_, pid.dll, wpid.dl_, wpidgen.dl_
    all need to be from same media version of W2K3 x64
    Then you need to adjust setupp.ini to have OEM in it

    If the key is OEM (and that is the point here) then the above files should come from Retail media (as it will definitely work)

    If you have problem PM me
