    Noop.. both are identical. Both are 2.1. Only server bios upgrades officially come with SLIC 2.2.

    AFAIK, according to the ACPI specifications you can't have two SLIC tables at a time. Windows can't be activated on this situation by oem:slp method.

    Btw, it looks like a valid key for 8.

    Code:
    Product Key : R96C9-NVT97-6VH9D-HW6M2-XXXXX
    Validity : Valid
    Product ID : 00179-60322-37647-AAOEM
    Activation ID : 9e4b231b-3e45-41f4-967f-c914f178b6ac
    Edition Type : Core
    Description : Win 8 RTM Core OEM:DM
    Edition ID : X18-15561
    Key Type : OEM:DM
    Crypto ID : 1796

    The whole X520 (X=3/5/7) series is affected with this 'bug'.
