    WOW is a "softmod" patcher. It runs everytime you boot your PC and will try to patch a bad SLIC table or introduce a new one. Once its done, there are no traces of it unlike bios emulation. WOW tries to do what a hardmod does. No one can say how long it will last or when MS will go after it.

    By no means, this is a perfect solution, but might be only choice for some. Best way is to buy vista if you use it then no worries.

    Hey guys, do you know what command i can set in grub to get it to ignore certain partitions in the mbr partition table when search for the root partition?

    I think it's currently having problems when it tries to parse the HFS partition.

    Thanks

    Sorry, I'm confused - why do I need a SLIC in real bios or VM bios, when I want to use WoW5 softmod to do it for me? :confused: I can't patch my BIOS (it's a DELL), so I wanted to use this softmod instead.

    Sorry to confuse you.:eek:
    Yes, that's what I meant.:)
    You need a SLIC.
    Running WS2008 at VM---> wow needs to patch VM bios--->alternative way--->using a modified VM bios.
    Running WS2008 at your Dell----> wow needs to patch Dell bios---->alternative-->other softmod, no hardmod possible.

    One way could activate the other could not. No matter of WS2008.... that's all;)
    What about the report? rw everything or Acpiscope?

    Will WoW5 or similar program allow setting the System Manufacturer field for SLP 1.0? If I recall correctly, Vistaloader does not alter System Manufacturer. Reason - I have a machine that DMICFG can't modify. TIA.

    the mbr version worked great even on Hyper-V Virtual Machines. VistaLDR would not even do that on my VMs.

    New idea:
    Try this to have a look at HD0, partition 0 only. Exchange it with your partition you want to search only.(hd0,0)

    menu.lst

    default 0
    hiddenmenu
    map --mem (hd0,0)/wow5/WOWfloppy_5.11_auto_HP.IMG (fd0)
    map --hook
    chainloader (fd0)+1
    rootnoverify (fd0)

    and
    menu.lst at img (MBR version)

    default 0
    hiddenmenu
    map (fd0) (fd0)
    map --unhook
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader /bootmgr

    menu.lst at img (NOMBR version<5.11)

    default 0
    hiddenmenu
    map (fd0) (fd0)
    map --unhook
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader /bootmgrv

    Try this to have a look at HD0, partition 0 only. Exchange it with your partition you want to search only.(hd0,0)

    Its working all right on HP CQ 550. I tried numerous activators before and wow5 is the only one which is working... Thank you so much guys!

    System: Vista Ultimate SP1 (only one OS)

    Used MBR version of WOW (installed on root (c:\)) and clicked on install.. Rebooted and voila... Windows is activated, without any need to enter new serial number or something like that.

    :) Thanks again guys.
