    Hey everyone i have a problem as you can tell. Well i installed Windows xp Student editon on my Dads Laptop using a volume license key that has been blocked from microsoft because of a leaked key. But that is not my concern for one my dads laptop doesn't have a product key for xp and its for vista second its not a OEM key for meaning not a that the mother board isnt oem so i was wondering if i ever run into having to update which will prolly happen soon or somthing what should i do and how could i get a genuine key for my dads acer ,but remember its not oem its just a retail key that it is printed in the bottom and its for vista oem premium i just had to down grade for him because vista sucks and well just asking for help from all of you to see what i can do for that laptop so i can be able to do updates and not have to reinstall windows . thanks:)

    The SLP needs to be AcerSystem. This is the correct for the CRC32 of the OEMBIOS files.

    If you can allow me a link to your bios, maybe we can be sure it is there..

    The error about the files missing is a bit strange..

    Is it possible to upload a copy of the ISO to me. I can put it in vm and do some testing...
