    I am trying to make a ghost image that is able to be deployed to computers produced by 2 different manufacturers, Dell and HP. The image is based off of an Dell-OEM activated install of XP. It is then sysprepd and drivers are added ect.. It then has a script to run OEMscan and cdkey immediately following mini-setup.
    This image works fine across the various dell computers it is deployed to but it does not auto activate on the HP machines.
    Is there a way to activate XP post install by overwriting the dell wpa and oembios files with activated HP ones, or is it a bit more tricky than that?
