Windows 7: HP OEM

Google SLP, System Locked Profile, and you may be able to make some sense out of whats happening. I've seen this sort of problem on Dells, Acers, etc. The SLP install media has a different product code from the one on the sticker. It also auto activates if the BIOS has the correct ID string in it. If you try to use a regular OEM or Retail DVD and use the code on the sticker, 9 times out of 10 it rejects it. It was never activated with that code in the first place. It can be a real pain in the but if you are doing a lot of them.

I am somewhat mystified. If your machines are win7 ready HP ones, then installing/reinstalling from the HP "For distribution with a new PC only" disks that come with those machines should autoactivate. No intervention is required from the user.

And why exactly are you "changing" keys?

That has been my experience with my Dell's and the reinstallation cd.

Agree with Bill: install should auto-activate with HP OEM installation disk. You may be changing out a key that's already activated?

If not, then this issue is with HP as to why their OEM disk won't' auto-activate as you need it to do with this assembly-line process.
