    Hello,

    Today I updated my BIOS to the A22 BIOS with SLIC 2.1. After that, I installed Windows 7 Professional x64 Dutch.
    After that, I installed the Dell certificate, and after that I installed the Dell product key. But Windows 7 is not activated. How can I activate it?

    I checked with SLIC Toolkit, and in the Advanced tab it says that my computer has SLIC 2.0. But a few hours ago, after the BIOS update, SLIC Tookit said in the Basic tab that my computer had SLIC 2.1 and now it is disappeared. How can I solve this?

    First at all: Why you opened a new thread for the BIOS Problem you already had run here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/53920-BIOS-Upgrade?

    What you had done AFTER the BIOS Update? Explain please each single step! By the way, AFAIK the BIOS Update will only work correctly with the corresponding Cert installed as well!

    Take the time and double check what you're have done and do, compare it with the advices for BIOS Updates given!

    As I told in that other thread already, if you didn't know what you're doing, keep your hands off from that very sensitive stuff, you do more harm than good!

    First, I installed Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my computer. After that, I updated my BIOS from A04 (SLIC 2.0) to A22 (SLIC 2.1). After the update, I checked with SLIC Toolkit if I had SLIC 2.1, and the Advanced tab said my computer had SLIC 2.1. After checking for SLIC 2.1, I installed the Dell SLIC 2.1 certificate in Windows 7, and then I installed the Dell SLIC 2.1 key. But Windows 7 could not activate. After rebooting, I checked again for SLIC 2.1, and it was disappeared.

    Is it a laptop or desktop , Which model ? Are you sure that the bios is sliced to 2.1 ? Post mgadiag report. Thx

    PS : Do you boot MBR or UEFI mode. Are you using a RAID configuration ?

    It is a desktop, Dell OptiPlex 755. I am using MBR. But maybe it is better if I keep using SLIC 2.0. Because I don't know much about it.

    Flash the modded bios posted by LatinMCG, and install the matching certificate from the same package. Install the serial for the Home Premium edition.

    Post an mgadiag report. Without an mgadiag report, everyone will be guessing wildly. With an mgadiag report, we might be able to guess more intelligently.

    Thanks to everyone for the help. But I am going to stay with my current A22 SLIC 2.0 BIOS, because I don't want problems with my primary computer. Thanks everyone for the help.

    It is not clear how you intend to activate a Win 7 installation in that case. You should be able to activate with Daz loader, without flashing a modded bios ...

    Not sure what is happening now, he did flash using the A22 dynamic bios slic 2.1 mod I did for him slic did not take after reboot because he needs to flash with A22 original bios first as stated in Serg008's slic 2.2 bios mod reboot then flash with mod.

    So don't know if he has just used my mod to update to A22 or has flashed original A22. Both mods will work if he follows correct procedure.

    I updated from the A04 BIOS to the A22 BIOS with your mod. But I did not flash with the original A22. So if I now flash with the original A22 BIOS, and then with your A22 BIOS, it will work?

    Yes according to Serg008 you need to flash with original first, reboot then flash with mod. Or you can try his slic 2.2 mod dell it will still work with windows 7.

    Still not working. I flashed my A22 BIOS with the original, and after that, I flashed the original with your modified BIOS. But SLIC Toolkit still says that my computer has SLIC 2.1.

    Yes, the Serg008 slic 2.2 mod is working. Do you know where I can download the Dell certificate to activate Windows 7 Professional?
