    Have to find a bios mod for that exact motherboard, however it should be basically the same process.

    Can't you turn UEFI off on the motherboard?

    (OP)
    Thanks folks for responding to my question.
    For the record, I am looking at this as a two stage process.
    The 1st stage is the UEFI BIOS mod.
    The second stage is the activation of Windows 7 as an OEM product.
    In the BIOS Mod section there is plenty of info about making the mod.
    I do not find much that makes sense about the actual activation of the OEM OS.

    The quote in the OP above begins at point 3 because 1 & 2 were about modding the "old style" BIOS, which is not my question here. My question here is only about the activation of Win7 after the UEFI BIOS has been modded.

    Per cocachris89's answer, I assume that once I mod the UEFI BIOS and install it, the actual activation of Win7 can be done in the same manner as was done for the old style BIOS.
    Is that correct?

    yes activation method is the same once SLIC 2.1 is added to your BIOS.
