Configuring DMI

If one follows section 9.13 of the User Manual, it does not meet (or satisfy) all of the criteria for passing WGA for Dell motherboards.

The installation for Windows XP was performed _in_ VirtualBox. This is _not_ a migration. OEM installations for Dell motherboards pre-validate via SMBIOS. Hardware is not considered, to my knowledge, in the evaluation for a genuine installation.

Activation is still pending despite configuring DMI correctly.

So did you check the DMI settings with some guest tool for reading the DMI settings? I really have no idea which DMI settings might be still missing...
