How to edit system information [Not OEM Info] ??

Hello. Is it possible to change the system information (OS Version, Service Pack etc.) ? I don't want to change the OEM information because I know how. I want to change it to : Windows Emax SP5 or something like that. Please Help

I have not tried this but look in C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui look in the String folder look at English (United States).rc with notepad at lines 12, 14, 350 I am using Windows 7 Professional and maybe if you change this information it will change but this is just a guess on my part. Be sure to create a restore point and save a clean copy of the above in case it gets corrupt.
Note: if you do not have a English version you may have to substitute your country in the above location.
