    See my previous post... i just uploaded them (SLICLDR file is hidden, so it looks exactly like it would do originally) :)

    That would be difficult, i do not know any other USB pendrives that behave like U3 drives do, eg: have 1 CDFS partition, which is read only and 1 regular USB removeable drive

    tested and works great thnxs for putting this one in mine cdrom collection.. in case i need it in the future!

    THNXS!


    [edited:]

    Is it possible to make a cdrom (bootloader) with all the released slic2.1's? (brands) and choose a perticular brand
    (in mine case probably asus)

    So i kan choose the matching (brand) certificate and key with it.... (for the future)

    Then probably a edit (and reburn) to make that choice permanent... (you don't wanna choose each time you boot)

    I can help too (am used to program and use photoshop for the cosmetics)

    I haven't tried this particular image, but UltraISO will put bootable ISO images on normal flash drives and they boot up and run just like the CD/DVD itself.

    Yep, it won't be read-only so it could be detected/circumvented, but then again i can not imagine MS will burn their fingers by removing boot-records from removable drives, bootlo@ders on non-removeable drives (HD, SSD) is another story though

    You can edit the SLICLDR file with winhex or such en put in another SLIC, although i don't see the point in doing so, DELL 2.1 SLIC will do the job until OA 2.2/OA 3.0 (?) comes out with Windows 8 (?)

    Get serious. They won't know if it was loaded from a CD, Flash Drive, ZIP drive, or what, and they certainly aren't going to spend any time or effort or add code to try and somehow remove it. If they do anything, they'll simpy add code to WGA to detect this key and invalidate the system's activation. And that's only possible if they get a new key to Lenovo before it's shipped to any legitimate customers.

    Try it and see. There's nothing to lose. It doesn't make any permanent changes to your system.

    I've been having excellent luck with WoW7 from Yen and prefer it myself.

    Right, you really made me laugh :)
    You do know how virus scanners and/or malicious file scanners work?
    You do know these look at file heuristics, patterns if you like, a bios emulator (Grub with SLIC information) in a file on physical drives can easily be detected using these same techniques... and guess what, Windows 7 has a build-in malicious file scanner.

    If you had read my reply thoroughly you would have seen I did not say they ever are going to do something like this, but if they do and you ended up using any of these 'brilliant' bootlo@ders that installs itself on a physical drive, you could end up being screwed (read as: deactivated)

    correcto mundo... thats why i like this solution.. to be prepared....

    But i will play around (hex).. because it s a funny idea... to have slic2.1 on mine box with the use of a cdrom-loader.....

    Why is everyone afraid about M$ to disable the HDD resident bootloader?

    Since the hacked bootloader is in fact a GRUB bootloader from linux and that M$ do not forbid dual-boot installation with Linux, how can they remove/replace that GRUB file to prevent SLIC modification? They day that M$ will do that, they may create problem with dual-boot configuration and that have more trouble with the Linux community, no?

    It is a modified GRUB bootlo@der, original GRUB bootlo@der does not have SLIC information in it, by checking file heuristics/pattern they could easily identify the original GRUB bootlo@der VS the SLIC bootlo@der, the popularity of these modified GRUB bootlo@ds (just take a look at the amount of topics here) will do the HDD resident bootlo@der no good, in my opinion it will not be the question 'if' but more likely 'when' counter measures against the use of GRUB bootlo@ders will be introduced.

    WinXP SP1 killed most of the Corp. Ed. installs.
    Vista SP1 knocked out the most widely used boot loaders.
    What do you think M$ will do in Win7 SP1. :D
