Windows 7: Custom OEM Information -- Beyond the Logo

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Custom OEM Information -- Beyond the Logo

Hello Sevenforums!

I am an IT professional at a start up IT company. We have both home and business users, with many businesses on a yearly service contract.

I am currently working on a registry file that will change the system properties to encourage the return of our clients -- on my test machine (my office desktop) I have the system properties displayed as so:

It is almost complete (excuse the bad image quality -- that will be changed) I have not yet gotten the reg file to make active changes into the registry either, so I am not sure if my coding is correct, but I can fix that later.

My main questions here:

1) How can I change the "Manufacturer" key to be shown and displayed as something like "Service", "Support", etc. -- If I change the name of the Manufacturer key in the registry, it stops displaying, my guess is that there is another key / dependency in the reg I need to edit as well. If anyone knows how to edit that, it would be MUCH appreciated.

2) The website link takes the client to our website, but I cannot manage to add more information like phone number, hours, location, etc. (A good example of this is SONY's system properties)

I have looked all over the web for help on this and have yet to find any guides on changing the text for "Manufacturer"

After I have the system properties the way I like them, I would like to make a script that will change the correct registry keys, and deploy a bmp file to the corresponding location. If anyone has more advice on how to do this, or a link to a detailed guide on how to do it -- it would be much appreciated

That will definitely be helpful for phone numbers, however it still does not explain how to change the "Manufacturer" label. Thank you for the info though, I will update my reg tomorrow morning.

Only specific registry value names, such as "Manufacturer", are supported and these are provided in the article linked to by Golden. The label name will match the value name. You cannot change this.

This is a reg file I use on one of my desktops to set custom OEM info on the system screen.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Model"="M2N68-AM SE2"

Here's a more up to date one. OEMInformation.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Model"="M2N68-AM SE2"
"Manufacturer"="ASUSTeK Computer Inc."

The file resides in sources > $oem$ > $$ > setup > scripts
The Logo is in sources > $oem$ > $$ > ASUS
It's all done during the install. There's also an oobe.cmd file in scripts folder. I didn't write that myself.

@echo off
start /w regedit /s %systemroot%\setup\scripts\OEMInformation.reg
del /F /Q %systemroot%\setup\scripts\OEMInformation.reg

del /F /Q %systemroot%\setup\scripts\oobe.cmd
