Dell Reinstallation DVD

Recommended Posts

Anybody know how to restore a Dell Reinstallation DVD to a standard installation disk, removing the crap from it including the Product Key, etc.

I want to play with unattended installation using the "lowest common denominator" to start with. The OEM Reinstallation disk inputs keys and things for me, i wanted to do this for myself (mainly for the learning experience).

So far I've found this using Google,

http://www.scriptcode.co.uk/dell_unattende...sta_oem_dvd.htm

I've removed the entire contents of the OEM folder, and burned a new DVD using this, however the installation still doesn't ask my to insert a key and tries to activate (though it's not a networked box at the moment so can't)

You need to remove the PID.txt file from sources folder and from Boot.wim 2 sources folder
