Question What If?

I read this strange thread on a Euro Forum. I think the Poster was possibly a College Student. The Poster wanted his class-built clone (Project) to be recognized as a Sony, Dell, etc. I think he siad the MB he was using was an ASUS or Gigabyte.

He mentioned he would slipstream the OEM files of the particular brand into his XP install disk.

Don't these OEM files contain information that would negatively effect the BIOS of the non-brand motherboard. Would he kill his projects MB.

No not at all, consider all of the pirated software that is OEM version. For example a Windows Vista Dell OEM. No problems there.
