    Try Daz's loader. It will install the correct cert & key for u!!

    BTW, is the Vista installation crap-free?? I mean have u tried anything (activation solution) else?? :g:

    If its not activating it can only be:-
    1. Incorrect slp key - Are you using the correct vista slp key.
    2. incorrect cert - Is your cert correct for the vista version.

    I use to have a Rock xtreme laptop which used the alienware bios mod. I had no problems dual booting and activating with vista and win 7.
