Nope, doesn't help.

we need the uncompressed CRC32 for OEMBIOS.CA_

run "expand oembios.ca_ oembios.cat" from the command prompt and post the hash for OEMBIOS.CAT

That is the generic CRC for Single User License non preactivated CD's. A SLP key will be accepted if it's an OEM copy but it will demand activation and you won't be able to get it. Those files need to be overwritten with 4 files that are appropriate for your system. Have you followed these instructions to build a new CD?

The 4 OEMBIOS files do not need to be pulled from a running system. You can obtain the necessary files from Bezalel's Rapidshare

NEC & Packard Bell E32D3612 looks like a good choice.

Google Packard Bell's PID to find a key.

New version of my OEMScan util

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=82638

New Features in V1.3

Fixed bug in BIN/SIG/DAT hash check

Removes unused dllcache\oembios.cat file

Allows you to pass a custom argument to your script

Allows you to specify an exact range to search

Changed scan range from 0xF0000-0xFFFFF to 0xE0000-0xFFFFF

Dry Run parameter to validate OEMBIOS set. run oemscan.exe /d

Looks like this project is slowing down a bit. ;) I guess that is because oemscan is working pretty well. :D I have to say it is great to not have to call to activate all the time anymore. :thumbup I think I have only had to call MS once in the past 2 weeks... whereas before I was calling them 1-3 times a day!

I'm assuming the list above means as long as that string is within that range they activate?

"(2003)" reflects Server 2003 and is not part of the string.

What i am trying to figure out is;

1). How can i take a range ..say "E838-E850 | Dell Inc" and know where in the Virtual PC DMI area to place that string.

2). Are some of the above ranges outside of the DMI area of the bios?

Having success with HP Pavilion & Virtual PC, i assume range "0-FFFF" is the Type 1 Manufacturer name feild of the DMI area, so i added it in the list although i havnt tested if ONLY that one string there works or if it must require it in the Type 2 area as well.

There are utilities that read the OEMBIOS.DAT file and output the unencrypted data, knowing the addresses contained within isn’t essential for a few reasons. If a bios contains “Dell Inc” chances are very good it’s a dell. With the exception of gateway all the current oembios file sets I’ve seen contain the obsolete filesets addresses and SLP strings. Collecting memory addresses and bios information isn’t vital to the project anymore. Collecting new OEMBIOS file sets is however.

A distinction needs to be made between specific ranges and broad ranges. For example HP Pavilion uses 0xF0000-0xFFFFF, that range encompasses most of the bios which includes among other things the DMI Tables. Dell uses 0xFE838-0xFE850 which is a very specific range inside the BIOS not the DMI tables.

I’m reluctant to give a detailed answer to your problem because the solution could very easily aid piracy and it isn’t necessary anymore

Like Siginet said, the project is slowing down. The next milestones are Windows 2003 & Vista support.

You're getting too close to the fine line between legitimate and pirated software. Personally I'd do it on my own PCs but not someone else's PC.

@Bezalel: The ASUS OEMBIOS Files on your share are corrupt. At least oemscan says that. I already double-checked my checksums with yours and they match, so there must be something wrong with the files on your share.

Does anyone have correct ASUS_FLASH files?

Are you using version 1.3? There was a bug in 1.2.1 which reported false corruption.

I checked ASUS FLASH with 1.3 and they passed validation. If you used a CD maybe they were burned incorrectly, check the checksum’s on the CD.

OEMBIOS.CAT B20C65BF

OEMBIOS.DAT 8C3FD204

OEMBIOS.SIG 05858B8E

OEMBIOS.BIN C904A0D0
