    Maybe late, but only now i discovered this SLP to activate XP as OEM.

    I modded my old PC bios with awardtool113 to SLIC2.1 for HP and also SLP 1.0 HP, then i installed a Windows XP Professional SP3 Retail cd with no key during install, then with the VLK2OEM Tool i copied the HP oem bios files to their correct place and rebooted, now i get that windows is activated and i entered no key wherever... is this correct?

    Yes. The key was inserted in when the tool ran. There is a folder full of key.bat for this purpose.

    You have done it correctly, but be sure the key was put in by the tool :D:D

    ok, i saw that folder with many key.bat files, but does it detect the slp manufacturer automatically? if then then it's a great method :)

    If you requested original mod then you should know what you flashed your bios with was it HP SLIC2.1 and HP SLP1 if you are not sure do search on forum for oembios.exe run that it will tell you what OEM bios files you need for XP but considering you are allready running i don't understand the question or are you running a vlk version ?

    OEMBIOS.exe is in either VLK2OEM or OEMBIOS changer tool.

    It installs the key for the OEMBIOS set it is installing. Each set has a CRC32 value for the .cat file that is unique. The tool reads this and sets the key accordingly.

    You have to know the SLP you are installing the OEMBIOS files for. You can have may SLP strings in bios.
