    so I saw someone said they went with a BIOS SLIC mod instead of a windows 7 loader and it's better than the loaders.
    i've done some research on this SLIC mod thingy, but i don't think i quite understand what it is, can someone put it down into the simplest form so i understand? (has something to do with mimicking OEM or something right?)

    and i'm planning to buy a HP DV7-7015CA from staples in a few days, it's pre-installed with win7 home premium; i'm planning to upgrade it to win7 ultimate, can someone link me to a guide/tutorial for that model? since it seems that different bios has different ways of doing SLIC mod.

    ty, much appreciated.

    slic 2.0 is vista marker. 2.1 is for 7.
    certificate matches slic= activated offline with generic OEM key.

    slic bios . install win7 . use OPATool or Daz Windows loader detects slic and only installs cert and key .. no bootloader.

    no need to slic dv7 as it has it already .. 2.1 no matter win 7 version

    Also if you plan to upgrade to Ultimate you can do that with the Windows Anytime Upgrade from within the preinstalled Windows Home Premium. When it asks you for a product key you can use the SLP key of the version you wish to upgrade to. As you have an HP you can use MHFPT-8C8M2-V9488-FGM44-2C9T3 to upgrade to Ultimate. To upgrade to any other version check the post below for other keys.

    To find the post do a google search for "slp key" without the quotation marks and it should be the second link to this forum.
