    It seems that Paradox has teamed up with Pantheon (or they have cross members) and they have released a non-nuked Windows Vista Ultimate

    Code:

    Looks like they've nailed some issues and might make me want to try out Vista this time around!
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    So they use the same unaltered RTM DVD image?

    What's in the PARADOX.rar?

    Any chance we could get just that part?

    I visited the link but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get to the files. I keep going around in circles. I guess its just an Nfo site, I found some links on meganova but they all seem to be private.

    I got one going but my speeds are nothing to sneeze at so it will be awhile.

    No, I just checked out the files. It's a 51 piece rar set with a nfo and .sfv.

    Someone needs to get the entire thing then repack and upload just the paradox.rar.

    It is under the name
    Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X86 (c) Microsoft *DVD*
    and the pirate bay one has PANTHEON on the end of it.


    edit:: Appzalien, that link is just for the nfo file to read the descriptions of scene releases. To find the file, use isohunt or other means (irc, dc++, etc.)

    I've got it burned on a cd, (I downloaded and installed this release which works like a charm). It contains the crack files and instructions on how to apply them for those who are curious. I'm kinda having doubts on how long this crack will work for until Microsoft patches it or something with their updates. If you want me to post the actual .rar file let me know.

    Code:
    		*************************************************************
    		*** OEM BIOS Emulation Toolkit For Windows Vista x86 v1.0 ***
    		*************************************************************
    
    
    What's the purpose of this release?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Bypassing the product activation requirement of Microsoft Windows Vista x86.
    
    
    How does it work?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Microsoft allows large hardware manufacturers (e.g. ASUS, HP, Dell) to ship their products
    containing a Windows Vista installation that does NOT require any kind of product activation as
    this might be considered an unnecessary inconvenience for the end-user.
    Instead these so-called 'Royalty OEMs' are granted the right to embed certain license information
    into their hardware products, which can be validated by Windows Vista to make obtaining further
    activation information (online or by phone) obsolete.
    This mechanism is commonly referred to as 'SLP 2.0' ('system-locked pre-installation 2.0') and
    consists of the following three key elements:
    
    1. The OEM's hardware-embedded BIOS ACPI_SLIC information signed by Microsoft.
    
    2. A certificate issued by Microsoft that corresponds to the specific ACPI_SLIC information.
    
       The certificate is an XML file found on the OEM's installation/recovery media,
       ususally called something like 'oemname.xrm-ms'.
    
    3. A special type of product key that corresponds to the installed edition of Windows Vista.
    
       This key can usually be obtained from some installation script found on the OEM's
       installation/recovery media or directly from a pre-installed OEM system.
    
    If all three elements match Windows Vista's licensing mechansim considers the given
    installation a valid system-locked pre-activated copy (that does not require any
    additional product activation procedures).
    
    So the basic concept of the tool at hand is to present any given BIOS ACPI_SLIC information to Windows
    Vista's licensing mechanism by means of a device driver.
    In combination with a matching product key and OEM certificate this allows for rendering any system
    practically indistinguishable from a legit pre-activated system shipped by the respective OEM.
    
    
    How do I use it?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Preliminary hint:
    Most operations described below require elevated privileges, so disabling UAC (Run->MSCONFIG.EXE->
    Tools->Disable UAC) for the time being is recommended, Of course, it can be safely re-enabled after
    all steps have been performed. Otherwise OEMTOOL.EXE and some SLMGR.VBS operations must be explicitly
    run with adminstrative privileges.
    
    1. Install the Windows Vista x86 edition of your choice without entering any product key during setup.
       Basically any Windows Vista x86 installation media will do, regardless if it's MSDN/Retail/OEM/...,
       MSDN/Retail are recommended though.
    
    2. Install the emulation driver.
    
       Run OEMTOOL.EXE, select the OEM BIOS information to emulate (ASUS might be a good choice given the
       fact that it's the only OEM for which a complete set of product keys is provided ;)) and hit the
       '<Install Emulation Driver>' button.
    
       Alternatively you can just right-click the ROYAL.INF file and chose 'Install' from the appearing
       menu. This only allows for installing the default OEM BIOS information (ASUS) though and is strongly
       discouraged unless OEMTOOL.EXE fails for some unknown reason.
    
       When prompted about whether to install an unsigned driver, allow it.
       (For some odd reason Microsoft didn't wanna sign this one...;))
    
    3. Reboot your machine.
    
    4. Install the OEM certificate matching your OEM selection during driver installation by running
    
       SLMGR.VBS -ilc <OEMNAME>.XRM-MS
    
       (e.g. "SLMGR.VBS -ilc C:\ASUS.XRM-MS" if you chose to install the default driver and extracted
        the certificate file to C:\)
    
       Note that this operation might take quite a while depending on your system, so be patient.
    
    5. Install an OEM product key matching the installed edition of Windows Vista x86 by running
    
       SLMGR.VBS -ipk <OEM_PRODUCT_KEY>
    
       (e.g. "SLMGR.VBS -ipk 6F2D7-2PCG6-YQQTB-FWK9V-932CC" if you're running Windows Vista Ultimate using
        the default emulation driver)
    
       Note that this operation might take quite a while depending on your system, so be patient.
    
       See PKEYS.TXT for a list of OEM product keys published by different OEMs.
    
    6. Run 'SLMGR.VBS -dlv' or right-click 'Computer' and chose 'Properties' to verify your licensing status.
    
    Due to the variety of possible combinations of different earlier Vista activation hacks we're not gonna
    provide details on 'persuading' existing installations to accept this method.
    During our test the general procedure depicted above worked out fine though, i.e. installing the emulation
    driver, rebooting the machine and then using the officially documented ways of installing a matching OEM
    certificate and product key should do the trick in all but the most messed up cases.
    
    
    What's that '<Dump OEM BIOS Information>' button in OEMTOOL.EXE for?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    It dumps the BIOS ACPI_SLIC information of any SLP 2.0-enabled OEM system.
    The dump can consecutively be used to emulate ('clone') that information on any other system by specifying
    the 'Custom' option.
    Using this function on a system booted using the emulation driver will give a dump identical to the currently
    emulated OEM BIOS information, so be sure to uninstall the driver and reboot the source machine first if you
    intend to dump the actual hardware-embedded OEM BIOS data.
    
    
    What are all those files for?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    DIFXAPI.DLL			- a runtime dll for Microsoft's DIFx API used by oemtool.exe
    OEMTOOL.EXE			- an application for installing/uninstalling the emulation driver
    			  	  and dumping BIOS ACPI_SLIC information from any SLP 2.0-enabled
    			  	  Windows Vista OEM system
    PKEYS.TXT			- contains a list of validated OEM product keys
    README.TXT			- this file
    ROYAL.INF			- driver .INF file, can be (ab)used to install the emulation driver
    			  	  in case oemtool.exe fails to perform this task
    ROYAL.SYS			- the emulation device driver
    
    CERTS\ACER.XRM-MS		- the certificate that corresponds to the ACPI_SLIC information
    			  	  emulated by the driver when 'Acer' has been selected during
    			  	  driver installation
    CERTS\ASUS.XRM-MS		- the certificate that corresponds to the ACPI_SLIC information
    			  	  emulated by the driver when 'ASUS' has been selected during
    			  	  driver installation
    CERTS\HEWLETT-PACKARD.XRM-MS	- the certificate that corresponds to the ACPI_SLIC information
    			  	  emulated by the driver when 'Hewlett-Packard' has been selected
    			  	  during driver installation
    CERTS\LENOVO.XRM-MS		- the certificate that corresponds to the ACPI_SLIC information
    			  	  emulated by the driver when 'Lenovo' has been selected during
    			  	  driver installation

    Looks good, might try it if it still works once my vista stops working (doesn't seem like it will stop working, when i restart it gives me some errors about activating then resets to 30 days !)

    If you can undo what your using now(crack), you could apply this one and get updates and all that good stuff

    How many keys are in PKEYS.TXT? Over 30?
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    why do i keep hearing ppl say things like, "maybe this version will work?" "will vista ever be cracked?" blah, blah, blah. c'mon ppl. i've had vista installed for over a month now and it works like it should. i get updates, driver support (it's getting better), and no activation popups. why do so many ppl not realize that after so long? makes me laugh that ppl still have problems "finding the right vista" to install or just can't get it to work. so, this paradox version is nothing new imho. my vista will work 'til @ least sp1 cums out i'm sure. by that time i'll just acquire a vista ultimate sp1 copy and start over. done & done.
