    Recently i have purchased Dell Latitude E6420 N-Series (UEFI Bios), i tried to unlock the hidden SLIC 2.1 using the dell utilities including ASSET.COM and SVCTAG.EXE (different versions), with no luck.

    I have found a thread here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...-Series-system?p=363473&viewfull=1#post363473

    Stating that there are new programs replacing SVCTAG.EXE and ASSET.COM, the new programs are (SmMfgCfg32/64.exe and PlatTags.exe / PlatformTags32/64.exe)

    I have tried the (PlatTags.exe / PlatformTags32/64.exe) posted here:http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...-Series-system?p=459109&viewfull=1#post459109

    But those can only change the asset tag for the system and not the service tag, and cannot unlock the hidden SLIC, to do that we need (SmMfgCfg32/64.exe) to change the service tag

    I need help to get this new program in order to be able to unlock this SLIC. or if there any work around.

    Any help will be highly appreciated

    call dell support and mention that you have a mainboard problem
