This will then allow Windows to install without the Product Key. Quite what changes need to be made, I don't remember, but you could look it up.
Now maybe this is just me but... What! You want him to alter files on windows CD (which i think is illegal), then Burn windows onto another CD which i know is illigal. Last time i checked MODs are susposed to give ppl crap for telling other people how to get around product keys and do illigal stuff.

Yea and unless you can do it correctly, it's pretty much impossible since they have so many copyrights, etc. They even have tracker stickers and things that are all on the cd. Take a look at a genuine full installation (not upgrade) install disk. It's covererd with fancy stickers and electronic trackers and layer that are read and put into the install.
