:D Bypassing the Windows 2000 Serial Check


First you want to copy your Windows 2000 setup files from your CD to your hard drive. You have to copy at least the I386 directory (I recommend copying all the files, so you can burn a complete CD later). Now go into the I386 directory you just copied onto your hard drive. Find the setupp.ini file. Right click it, select Properties, and remove the Read-only checkmark. Now open the file to edit it.

Your setupp.ini file should read something like this:

[Pid]
ExtraData=6166656C736263737373B2574A0581
Pid=51873XXX

Replace the 3 X's (generally it'll be three zeros) at the end with "270". It should now read something like this:

[Pid]
ExtraData=6166656C736263737373B2574A0581
Pid=51873270

Thatís it! Now you can now install Windows 2000 without a serial number!

Dude, you're working with the wrong file...

You have to edit the setupp.ini file in the i386 folder. there should be this line in the file:

Pid=518822 335
(it's actually one number the space is for clarity)

replace the 335 with 270 for volume licensing, OEM for OEM, and leave as is for normal retail. You will still have to put in the serial.

this works on a 2k version of windows but not on the XP version.
I also would like to know how to do it on a XP version.

I heard putting a winnt.sif in the i386 folder and rebuning it would work... havend tryed this

Actually it is to change to 000 for volume licensing, and 270 for OEM. Pid only accepts numbers.

Jason,
thanks for the reply, but your winnt.sif is largely the same as mine. I've experimented some more...

If I do not have a winnt.sif I get asked all the usual questions, but not for key. If I have any winnt.sif AT ALL, all questions are automatically answered EXCEPT I get asked for a licence key :( . Any key I include in .sif or add manually is invalid. If I change the OEM options in the .sif I get asked for the CD Key (yellow label) or the Volume Licence Key, but never for the "normal retail" key :angry: .

I thought I had a retail CD, but I might have an OEM version and this may be keyed somehow different. I'm going to compare CDs, or more precesely the I386 directories as this is all I've copied, at work tomorrow :unsure: .

Unless of course you or someone else can inform me otherwise.

Starting to get a bit hacked of at this now. It was so easy with Win2k, almost trivial you might say compared to this. If it is the fact that the OEM version is different I might go and find a short pier and go for a long walk..... :(

Chris

by pass not sure about that try these :

QMDGV-QRC2B-XF6JB-GRGHK-W9DRC

8VCGK-3GQKD-6Q7X4-4V3MM-9RT8P

WG3MB-JGK6Y-CJKV7-24TXW-RDY7Q

is there a way using this PID file to allow it to do an upgrade via a corp CD but accept an OEM key. I tried to subst the 335 with OEM but it haults the upgrade.

Thx

Joe

[Unattended]
    UnattendMode=FullUnattended
    OemSkipEula=Yes
    OemPreinstall=No
    TargetPath=\WINDOWS
    ExtendOemPartition=1
    ConfirmHardware=Yes
    OemFilesPath=..\$OEM$

[UserData]
    ProductID=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
    FullName="PerUser"
    OrgName="MyOrg"
    ComputerName=*

unattended mode is easy. the two sections of unattended.txt that make it possible are in the quote, that unattended.txt should work without flaw

Say a person has the following:

1.) Complete bootable Corp CD w/ "Black-Balled" key :ph34r:
2.) Complete OEM CD version of Pro (max allowed activations :angry: )

With the above two CD's is it possible to: B)

Transfer certain files from both CD's to make one final CD that will "act" like the corp version on "a" computer, but will also "look" or "act" like an OEM/Retail version to M$$$$ while updating and/or anything else?

This information is only for my entertainment and nothing else Bill. :D

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

OEMBIOS.SI_
PIDGEN.DLL
SETUPP.INI
SETUPREG.HIV
WIN9XUPG\WIN95UPG.INF

The above files are needed to change a Retail, OEM or any other Windows XP CD to a Corporate Version.

Only use easy CD Creator 5 or 6 to make the Image File, from the Retail, OEM or any other Windows XP CD that you want to change to a Corporate Version.

Only use Win ISO to delete the above files from the Retail, OEM or any other Windows XP Image File.

Write down or remember the directories where you are about to delete the above files from the image file.

Delete the above files from the image file.

The above files have to be copied from a Corporate Version of Windows XP Professional Final Release CD.

Insert the above files into the correct directories.

Save the image using Win ISO

Burn the image file using easy CD creator 5 or 6

You will need a Windows XP Professional Corporate CD key thatís compatibale with Service Pack 2 & above.
