Technically it may be possible to use the key off the side of the laptop to activate any installation. However, it is only supposed to be used on that machine.

A pre installed oem license is only good for the machine it came with.

You may need to ring MS - they are quite good about that sort of thing.

What is in the oem partitions ? - can you post a screenshot ?

If you have trouble accessing them with Windows Explorer , Freecommander should be able to do it:

Pqservice contains all the files needed for recovery to factory condition.

Have a look in folder called ACERBOOT\sources you should find "install.wim".

This is what the regular installation dvd looks like:

What have you done so far?

Is the Acerboot folder the same as the regular install dvd ?

You will need boot .wim as well , of course, - is there one in Acerboot\sources ?

Found another SIW2 method that works faster to create ISO from files: Boot to CD/DVD
