    Can't Customize OEM Information [SOLVED]


    I recently built a new computer and I want to add my own custom OEM info.
    I created the OEMInformation registry key and added the corresponding string values,
    as seen in the screenshot below.

    However,
    after adding all my info and re-booting.
    No OEM info shows in system properties.
    System properties remains unchanged

    I even created a logo and that also doesn't show up.

    Is there something I've overlooked?

    Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Sammy,

    Just to verify, did you close and reopen the "System" window to have the changes applied?

    Hi Brink.

    Yes,
    I restarted my machine and the added registry key and it's values seem to have been ignored.
    None of the information,
    provided by the registry key were present in system properties.

    It's nice to see that is does work.

    However,
    the information I added is correct and still no change in the system properties.

    @Geosammy
    It looks like you and @Brink are at different locations in the Registry.

    You should not be in the "Explorer" subkey.

    "

    After you set the new registry values, disable Fast Startup in power options and see if they stick after restart.
