    Hey

    If someone has the time and wants to, could someone write up a Q&A about SLIC, OEM cert, Windows 7 activation, etc? Some of the information is really confusing and/or missing information/files. Thank you very much.

    Whats wrong with the existing information?

    BTW, W7 uses the exact same activation mechanism as Vista but with a v2.1 SLIC instead of a v2.0 SLIC. v2.1 SLICS can activate both Vista & W7.

    (OP)
    So all I have to do:

    1: Mod my motherboard's bios to have 2.1 SLIC tables
    2: Use any cert (including Vista's) and activate it (with the Windows 7 Ultimate key)?

    If thats clear, then ok. If it isnt, thats why Im asking for a FAQ.

    2. Use a cert (including Vista's) that matches the specific 2.1 SLIC table you used in step 1, and activate it with the key

    Come on. You are pirating expensive software that you will use on a daily basis and you can't take a few minutes to read?

    But the 2.1 SLIC table includes all of them right?


    (See why we need a FAQ better written)
