    got an aw9d-max and bios 1.6
    I have found here the modded bios with ASUS slic.

    ATM i habe win xp pro.

    If i want to upgrade....

    do i need a special version of vista? ONLY Vista 32 or 64 will work? Must it be the oem-version?

    Where to find the SLIC to enter while installing? is SLIC= serialnumber?

    Sorry for the questions i am new to vista. a step-by-step manual would be great, too.

    It tlls vista not to ask permission to scratch its ***. It just gets rid of the annoying.... This could possibly harm your computer **** and lets you get on with your business without all the boxes. Like the Mac commercial ... allow or deny

    I think you can use an OEM version if your SLIC Tables match your License and Product Key but if they dont you might wanna try slmgr.vbs -rearm. But be careful you can only rearm your system 3 times before you go into reduced funcionality mode.

    Oh and one quick search for the exact file name and I came up with this
