Windows 7: No manufacturer detected after clean install

15 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
No manufacturer detected after clean install

Hi all,

After a clean install of Windows I noticed that when I right click My Computer and select properties, there is no manufacturer information as well as the logo. Under System in this window the first on the list is the system rating.
I tried going through the registry and in OEMInformation there is nothing there.

I have an Alienware M17X Laptop.

Help is much appreciated,

Unless you use the Dell branded Win7 Reinstallation DVD you get no branding on your Properties page and have to activate using the Product Key on COA sticker. If you really miss having a company logo on that page then I'd contact Dell for Reinstallation media.

Steps for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
