    Hey guys i have been reading alot on bios modding and trust me im not one of those people who just ask a question before looking around for explanations first.

    I have read the tut (How to Modify Your Own Bios Using AMI Mod Tool and Award Mod Tool) and have a question

    im modding my bios to activate windows 7 so i need to insert slic 2.1

    I get everything except the part about certificates

    i downloaded the newest Bios version for my mobo (asus M4A785TD-V EVO)

    i select that for original bios

    Manufacture is: Asus

    For The SLIC and SLP i just selected the default asus ones included with the AMI Bios mod Tool

    Now the part i dont get is the certificate what is it? the tut says:
    Next, choose the certificate. The BIOS and the Certificate have to match. The tools will let you know if they do match or if they do not match.

    i just proceeded with out the certificate to see what would happend and it said it was the modded bios good to use or do i need that certificate stuff.

    Thanks alot
    Picture is below Thanks alot

    certificate, get it here

    download SLIC 2.1 BIN.7Z

    *.XRM-MS file is certificate, choose Asus folder

    Edit : it does not matter Retail or OEM

    you are safe to delete two files 1B and 1B_SLIC

    your modded bios file is bios_name_SLIC.* (M4A75TD...SLIC.* )

    The certificate is NOT needed for the bios mod, only activation. The first mod is fine!!:cool:
