    I request a guide teaching how to make a New Clean non-OEM Computer activated by BIOS mod. Is anyone interested in making it? :worthy:

    I hope the guide could tell all members who are interested in making different XP OEM disks:

    1. What need to be changed turning a Retail disk into a OEM brand disk (Link those needed files to HERE).

    2. How to add a real SLP string in BIOS which matches those branded OEMNBIOS files (also post some tools and HOWTO).

    3. How does your computer activate through BIOS.

    Please create a new post including HOWTO instead of linking to others' post so that would make the post perfect.

    See HERE for ideas.

    :worthy::worthy:
    Many Thanks for MDL members, I think the requested post should help a lot of juniors (including me). :worthy::worthy:

    Thanks but how about the string in BIOS. 911medic told me that the tab, "SLP1.0" of SLIC Toolkit is not useful to detect the SLP string, is it?
    How can I type the string inside it. Please help...

    Try DMI boot disk again

    make sure you use


    choose option 4 (cmd) -> enter dmi /sm "ASUS_FLASH"
    then reboot computer boot again from dmi boot cd and select option 1 to view or verify OEM bios SLP.

    you could just try the default setting for HP and use HP OEM bios files

    as for slic dump tool kit you are better to use oembios.exe
    one member has posted Multi OEM Windows XP Pro with OEMScan save you making a OEm cd.

    I have used oembios.exe before (as I said in the other post)

    Done,
    DMI booted, 4 (exit to DOS prompt), entered "dmi /sm "ASUS_FLASH" "
    Reboot, 1, then 1 to view:

    note: P4I45Gx_FE or P4I45Gx_PE

    Really? +1 to reputation
    Great, so does it mean that if I make my own ASUS OEM disk, I don't have to enter a key after installation (i don't mean the key during install, but after) and it would be activated?

    Ya I know it I will erase it later...

    But tell me plz which key I should use in the OEM disk...
    ASUS PRO key or the one I am using NOW?

    I mean if I use the M$ VLK I should have to change it after installation, right?
    Just want to make the installing easier and finally activated with the ASUS SLP key.

    lol I get more confused after reading the information in the link...
    How are COA and OEM SLP key related...
    Is it both COA or OEM SLP key can activated a XP computer which is OEM branded?

    did you read the article
    You don't have COA Key also you are using OEM SLP method with oembios files when windows xp loads it will be Preactivated if you use winnt.sif and SETUPP.INI and oembios files and ASUS_FLASH in DMI area.

    Have a problem replacing those files in the retail disk. I use PowerISO
    Lower case files can exist with upper case files together. Replace failure, problem solved after renaming all required files with upper case.

    To conclude, what make a RETAIL disk to become a branded OEM disk is :

    copy SEVEN files ONLY in upper case and replace those original:

    Code:
    PIDGEN.DLL
    SETUPP.INI
    WINNT.SIF (optional actually ; additional, not replacing as there's no original in Retail)
    
    OEMBIOS.BI_
    OEMBIOS.CA_
    OEMBIOS.DA_
    OEMBIOS.SI_
    
    SETUPREG.HIV not needed, right?
    DPCDLL.DLL probably not needed.

    Am I correct at all? No files missing?

    DO NOT REPLACE:

    Pidgen.dll
    dcpdll.dll
    setupreg.hiv


    this will cause you much grief...

    @ Blackranger for the last time ADD WINNT.SIF file or you will need to type key in everytime you install it just because it wasn't on the retail cd you are altering doesn't mean you don't need to add it.
