Dell System Locked Preinstallation Keys and Code of Authenticity Explained

Windows 8

Windows 7 - Dell

Windows 7 - Alienware

Windows Vista - Dell

Windows Vista - Alienware

Windows XP - Dell  (Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 Support Ends April 8, 2014)

For Alienware all the ABR Files are needed:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Windows Vista Ultimate

If you have these send the author of the wiki a private message http://en.community.dell.com/members/natakuc4/default.aspx so they can be added thanks.

Note Alienware became part of Dell in 2009. Later Alienwares might use the Dell SLP keys opposed to the Alienware SLP keys but I haven't checked this.
