OEM pre activation for Microsoft windows server 2003 OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    what is the process to follow for OEMs for pre activating windows server 2003 or windows XP?

    By searching through net, I have some understanding that OEMs need to prepare OEMBIOS.ini file and sent along with the product key to Microsoft. Then Microsoft will send some OEMbios files to OEMs.

    Those OEMbios files are copied to OS CD content. If we install OS using this modified CD content, then OS will be activated automatically. But I need some help in preparing the OEMbios.ini files.

    Thanks in advance.
