factory OS and drivers. I called Dell today and they're shipping the discs
(I think they said one for OS and another for drivers... not sure about this
though), but I have a question: Will I need to pay to have Windows 7
reactivated or will the factory install already have it activated?
Re: will I need activation code for factory install replacement DVD for Dell?
For OEM activation of computers certified for Windows 7, it doesn't check
for the service tag. It looks for the ACPI_SLIC 2.1 table in the BIOS,
and compares the BIOS entry with the corresponding data in the
pre-installed Dell OEM certificate.
