Having an issue with a client's computer that needs the OS reinstalled
due to drive failure.. She has misplaced her OEM CD she received from
Dell and Dell will not ship out a CD since it has been past the 120
days limit they have on sending replacement software. I tried
changing the Setupp.ini from 55277270 to 55277OEM but it still fails..
Am I missing something?

This trick with setupp.ini doesn't work in XP. You need Retail XP CDROM and
licence.
