    Well I have been using a bios mod for the last few month with no problems until I put an older acronis image back on my system. Then I got the "This copy of Windows is not genuine message". I though no big deal I will just do what I did before and flash the latest bios for my gigabyte motherboard and be back to a registered version again in no time. I modded the new bios with no errors, flashed my bios, used the OpaTool v0.6.exe to put in the certificate and key with no errors but my windows7 still remains unregistered. I am using the hp-compaq certificate. So I ran SLIC_Dump_ToolKit.EXE (pictures added) and noticed that the Pub Key is red "!=", the Marker is green "==", Version is 2.1 and the Digital Signature is green "OK". So I think it has something to do with the Pub Key, I am at a lost on what to do now, anyway to get the Pub Key green?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think that those files work with my motherboard ... Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R (rev. 1.6)

    Thanks anyways.
