HP OEM SP2 to SP3 ?


OEM A.C.T. (OEM Activation Control Technology)
This is a method that allows you to create a Windows XP Setup disk that has Multiple Manufacturer oembios.* files on it. During installation a script is run that determines what oembios.* files are needed for the system so that you will have a pre-activated install. This will help lessen the times that you need to call Microsoft for activation. :D

The best way to test in vmware is on a system that will pre-activate normally. Then you can edit the vmware config file in a way to use the systems slp information in vmware.


Code: Select all
SMBIOS.reflectHost = TRUE

Thanks Siginet, I did successful XPSP3 OEM Install last night, i used a spear hardrive and performed reall instal, Now I am looking to integrate HP xw8400 drivers, I don't want to use Driverpacks for some reasons. I want HP Official xw8400 drivers Download. Is there a way to integrate these drivers into WindowsXP HP OEM SP3 just for HP xw8400 Workstation?

Although this method will work for the drivers only. It won't install other items like control panels or other utilities which was what BTS DriverPacks were designed for.
If you don't mind me asking, why don't you like DriverPacks?

What I am thinking is to Install a fresh copy of Windows XP with all updated drivers, then use Siginet's Driver Grabber Tool to capture drivers source files, I think Nlite can integrate those drivers into XPCD Source.

Is there any guide/Tutorial available for using Driver Grabber with Nlite ?

BTW, I Never said "I don't like DriverPacks". I used them in past, they are really very usefull. At this time I am just making XPCD for single computer and I want to fit everything in a 700 MB CD. :)

No problem. Just curious. :)
The tutorial is for Nlite over at their forums. Just select "multiple folders" (I think) on the driver tab.
It's been a while since I've used nlite so I'm not positive. Their forums would be a better place to ask.
