    Hello All,
    I am waiting on a new AlienWare M17X. It should arrive early January. Does anyone know if it is SLIC 2.1 ready and if so what certificate do I need for Win 7 / 2008 server ?? (Dell Certificate, AlienWare specific certificate) ??

    Many Thanks...

    A02 BIOS of M17X already contains SLIC 2.1 and it is ALIENWARE, not DELL.
