I've just swapped the motherboard on my Latitude D600 (took 3-5 days
less than Dell's depot 8*), but they didn't send me the disk to write
the Service Tag into the board.

The service manual says:

/*
NOTE: After replacing the system board, enter the computer Service
Tag sequence into the BIOS of the replacement system board.

3. Insert the floppy disk or CD that accompanied the replacement
system board into the appropriate drive. Follow the instructions that
appear on the screen.
*/

Unfortunately, it didn't come with such a thing, and I can't set a
BIOS admin or user password on a system without an ESC. I'm on hold
awaiting Dell's tech support, but if anyone knows where I can get such
a thing online, I could shave another couple of days off this
process...

Thanks!

The utility is not available to the general public.
