    Hi. am i right in thinking that if you install vista with an OEM disk and have a SLIC modded BIOS. the certificate and product key will be installed automatically?

    Otherwise, the .exe file from the Dell website seems to be a zlib-compressed self-extracting zip one.
    It extracts itself into the temp folder (and also sweeps away afterwards?) under the username folder, so you have to make a trick on the temp folder to grab the files extracted (you can get free a program for things like that).

    Try to dumo your bios like this, using HWDirect...

    Start hwdirect.

    Go to the item "memory dump" Double click.
    A window open's:

    1. go to "Physical address" enter "F0000"
    2. go to "Size" enter "FFFF"
    3. Press "DUMP"
    4. right click, select all.
    5. right click , copy

    Start winHex.

    paste it into a new file, therefore use ASCII hex.
    Save & Upload.

    This are the global steps to take.
