    You need to post more info. Link to mod. bios and original and what tool you have used to flash it. The SLIC2.0 could be protected and to flash with dos phlash version 1700 and /O /FORCE switch may help...

    So you were able to successfully install SLIC 2.1 and activate Windows 7 on it? DO SHARE. Exactly, what and how?

    Do not expect an answer to a thread almost two years old.
