    One: Are you sure you flashed your BIOS with a BIOS modded with SLIC 2.1?
    Two: How did you check your SLIC version? SLICDump? If so, please post a picture of your SLIC table.

    1. Yes , downloaded from here and even it was confirmed that works but in my case it didn't :) . Maybe it has something to do with the previous modded bios i've used to have the 2.0 slic? In the bios update utility the first 12 blocks where not updated.

    As far as I remember, a bios update entirely clears the NAND chip and flashes the new files onto it, could be different for other mobo utilities though.

    BIOS is Award PhoenixBios that uses .bin files... there are 2 modded bios on the forum and none of them updated the slic 2.0 table to 2.1:( ... i tried with EZFlash from bios and the awdflash tool ... no results:(

    Does the older modded bios you used use the pubkey/marker method?

    If that's the case then that might be your problem.
    I had a similar problem with a freind's board p5n-e sli.
    The slic info just didn't get erased every time i flashed.
    I released the pubkey/marker from the modded bios then flashed the modded bios with released pubkey/marker.
    And it worked the slic info was gone.
    then i flashed with the new modded bios and the new info was there and win 7 was activated.

    Well first modded bios that i used sounds like this:
    P5N-D - ver. 1001 (2009/02/04)
    slic=Asus http://slics.myftp.org/Asus_P5N-D_ve..._ASUS_SLIC.rar
    Antiflash, please give feedback"

    Second one is this
    P5N-D - ver. 1101: Award
    slp/slic2.1=Dell, tested marcymarc- this actually worked with an asus cert and not with the included dell cert otherwise seems fine
    http://www.box.net/shared/r5lhge1tt7


    I don't know what that Antiflash is, antiflash slic table or.... maybe that's the problem. I'm thinking of flashing the bios withe the official .BIN then applying the modded one but I'm not sure it will work.

    Try flashing the original from dos to see if it clears the slic table, i forgot to add that detail that i flashed from dos when it worked.

    I had the same problem with my P5N-E SLI
    Just flash from DOS using aflash xxxx.rom /f
    That solved my problem.
    Note: I have used a pre-made bios mod that also did the same DELL SYSTEMWARD string.
    Ah, and I didn't manually restored the settings using the jumper.

    My exactly steps where:
    Flash the latest original bios from DOS, using the /f string at the end
    Flash the latest bios modded by Andys tool, again using the /f string at the end.
    Voila!

    Hope it helps you and good luck!

    Here's a collection of flash files for the asus P5N-D and P5N-E motherboards. The archive contains a tested slic 2.1 dell bios flash for retail channel asus P5N-D motherboards. And it also contains untouched bios flash files for velocitymicro oem motherboards.

    VelocityMicro workstations come with an SLP copy of vista ultimate preinstalled. Very recent workstations have an SLP copy of windows 7 preinstalled.

    Are the people that are having problems updating to a slic 2.1 using velocity oem boards rather than asus retail units?
