    Hello folks,

    i have a few questions refering to the activation process that we are using for now in combination with the newly leaked OEM:SLP keys. I hope, some gurus here can help me clearifying some things:

    1. Microsoft has changed the SLIC/SLP 2.0 model to 2.1. Why? We can still use the old certificates to activate W7 that are basing on SLIC/SLP 2.0. *->
    2. *-> In this case, will the OEMs release new digital certificates, and if yes, what is the difference between the old and the new ones?
    3. In the case, that the OEMs will release new certificates, how to manage uninstalling old certificates out of the system / tokens.dat to install a new one - if needed? Or will it end in reinstalling W7 to use new certs?
    4. Is it possible, that MS will detect the modded BIOS through software?

    1) Because, if they didn't, it was like giving away free copies of seven to all people using manufactors build PCs.
    3) Repository is the place for that http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126
    4) They already could but won't, it's too risky, what would happen if the soft made a mistake an de-activated legal manufactors build PC?

    Thanks Lenmaer for clearifying.

    to 1: That makes sense ;)
    to 3: Checked that before, but i donĀ“t know which of the commands is the one for deleting the digital certificate
    to 4: We will see....
