Use Davidxxw's SLIC tool kit to check.
After SLIC tool kit confirms the BIOS contains the correct SLP 2.1 OEM marker:
Use DAZ loader (http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/24901-Windows-Loader-Current-release-information) to install the correct certificate and key.
Use OpaTool (http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...ndows-7-Repository/page91?p=149816#post149816) to install the correct certificate and key.
@ Computer Fixer, OpaTool is ancient and has not been updated since 09 Dec 2009.
I want like to thank you all for your prompt response to a newbie here.
From the response so far, my guess is that flashing of SLIC 2.1 BIOS usually result the insertion of corresponding (appropriate) SLP 2.1 OEM marker to that laptop. The SLIC tool kit is merely to confirm the presence of the correct SLP 2.1 OEM marker. A loader is always needed to activate the Win 7. Am I correct?
Most of that's correct apart from what you said about the loader. The loader can inject a SLIC into memory via software so that you don't have to flash your BIOS. It will also install the certificate and serial required for either the loader or the BIOS mod, whichever you prefer.
Thanks you all for the info. I will first check the SLIC with SLIC DUMP ToolKit and manually install per
The-Official-Windows-7-Repository in section 6F-a and 6F-b for advanced stuff. If not, I will use the loader.
Yeah, I'm aware of it's decrepitude.... but it's simple, straight forward and still works as advertised where other programs sometimes fail to install a certificate and key.
Touchdown!!!!!! It works! But I lost my R&R and Thinkvantage system.....hmmm..
Thank you all.
Yes I know it may work but what I meant was there have been other manufacturers certificates and keys released since it was last updated so I may not work on as many as Daz loader.
