The key from the bottom of the laptop is OEM:COA key not OEM:SLP key if this is xp pro you could try MS OEM:SLP key Preserving OEM Pre-Activation when Re-installing Windows XP
I have used your tool and have successfully installed the OEMBIOS files for my gateway laptop. But Windows still wants to be activated and when I put in the key from the bottom of the laptop it says its not a valid key when it is. Am I missing something? Am I doing something wrong?

If it can't, and if it only scans the bios and then blindly copies the files indicated by PATH, then why not using compressed files in the indicated PATH and then expand them with an external batch or any other method? Or we could just hexedit OEMSCAN, replace the files extensions with BI_, CA_, DA_, SI_ and include a batch for expanding them after they're copied to the hdd. That would save lots of CD/DVD space for MULTI-OEM discs. Just my two cents...
EDIT: never mind, just noticed that compressed and uncompressed OEMBIOS.* files are practically the same size
