    OK, I started a new post because I just replied to a previous post, but just realized VLK and VLC are different things. I need to get or make a XP Pro 64Bit Volume license copy .iso I (company I work for) have a volume license (No activation necessary) and I have my XP Pro sp3 CD, but I need to build a XP Pro 64 Bit machine. I (personally own) XP Pro 64Bit sp2 OEM (bought from CDW) that I have for my own personal computer. The PID on my copy is 76588OEM. Can I use this disk to make a volume license copy for work. I know we use to have some 64Bit computers, so we must have had a 64Bit Volume License Copy disk before, I don't know where the disk is (IT guy before me must have lost it) So, how can I get or make an .iso that I can use my VLC key on. I don't want a hacked copy, I need a legitimate .iso as this is for use at my work. I think it is legal since we own our VLC key and we are defiantly legitimate. Any help would be appreciated. I have been searching the internet for days and can't seem to figure out how to do this. Thanks!!!

    Why don't you just not contact MS if the company have volume license, that's the company's problem it's not up to you to source the cd.

    Thank you for the reply. I am downloading all the parts to the ISO. This is going to sound like a dumb question, but how do I put them all together to make one ISO image (I know I have done this before, but it must have been a lone time ago) once they are combined into an ISO and I burn it, Will this take my corprate key from my 32Bit version? Sorry for some of the dumb questions, just getting back in the swing of things after being gone for so long.

    Unfortunately in this company (you can probably guess where I work) it is my problem, I have contacted MS already and they were know help, There was a special group that dealt with the account I guess and now we are using Vista and 7, but I need to built a machine for a certain project.

    OK, those downloads were Great!!!! I burned an ISO and started a test image. When I got to the product ID part, it said the product ID I entered is not valid. Why would my Product ID not be valid? It is the same one that I use all the time for out 32Bit XP Pro. I reimage computers everyday at work with our product ID and never get this error. Any Ideas?

    Honestly!?, how do you do your job every day...?
    That is not rocket science (just read!)

    Also x64 has DIFFERENT keys than x86 set (yes, also different VLK, you can NOT use x86 = 32bit keys)

    Well my main job was 0311, I got thrown into IT as a secondary duty. I have to wear a lot of hats around here, doing the best I can. As far as IT goes, this is not what I do on a daily basis. I am spead thin and have to do a lot of different thing. But no need to be rude.

    Sure, no need, but you are not the only one "spead thin"

    But all the info is available on a silver platter in a single place (best place on the internet as far as Windows is concerned)

    Instead of asking that many questions please read, read, read

    I have been reading. I guess I am not sure what is the best way of doing this. There are a lot of different ways of doing this stuff and a lot of different terms. i have been on google for days. This is the only place that I have found that is in depth. I have been trying to find our VL Product key, I didn't know it was different than our x86 key. There are no more computers around here that have our x64 XP on them, they have all been converted to vista, so I can't even extrac it. I have even been debating just buying a few more copys of x64 XP out of my own pocket just to get this done. But I really don't have the money (We don't get paid much). I am just learning about this SLP thing. Not sure what is the best way of getting this done. But thank you for the help.

    You already downloaded the OEM iso, great. You aready have the SLP keys available in the stickies

    You have the oembios.* set also available in the stickies http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/9795

    Just check what SLP 1.0 you might have on your PC using the oembios tool 1.1
    If you do not have any then insert one http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/6351

    Replace the oembios files inside the downloaded iso, burn, install

    You are done, why are you trying to chose the more difficult way?

    (OP)
    I am going to try it this way. Will I need a product key when I am installing it or will replacing the oembios files in the iso take care of that. This way looks pretty easy, so I am going ot give it a shot. I have a few different Laptops that I have to install it on, so I guess I will have to make a different disk for each of them if they have different oembios info. Thanks so much for all the help!!!

    Come on?! You have the SLP keys available in the stickies!!!!!

    If you have different brands, then install with a single image & you can use the changer later while booted into safe mode:

    OK, another dumb question. I bought an x64 XP Pro OEM version (from CDW) for my own laptop. Is that CD the same OEM one you are talking about, or is there a different OEM CD that I need?

    The one you bought & the one you downloaded from ppost 2 are (or should be) excatly the same thing!

    That CD to activate offline needs the SLP key (one from stickies!) and oembios set for you machine

    Where is the question?

    Perhaps I'm missing something here, but he said he downloaded the ISO I posted, which is Windows XP Pro x64 with SP2 (Volume License).
    That ISO + the volume key in my previous post, will work just fine. ;)

    Sorry, true, you gave VL links, I was getting confused in this thread & somehow read that he had ARMPXOEM_EN.iso

    Yes, that will be the easiest for him just to use the key!

    I downloaded the one that you gave me the link to. That one and the one that i bought are different- the one I downloaded from your link was the one I was looking for. But then I couldn't use our VLK with it, so sebus was trying to help me do it a different way. I got the .nfo file from your last post, but do not know how to get the product key from it. I know this is all real simple stuff to you guys, but I am new at this part of IT (Sometime I wish I could just go back to being a rifleman) I am learning SO much from you guys, I can't thank you enough!
