    I am trying to apply the SLIC mod to a Dell Optiplex 740 and also an Optiplex 330 using the info I found on here but it isn't working. Winflash says "BIOS file size doesn't match with MainBoard BIOS" for the 740. I downloaded the file that LatinMcG created. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have scoured this forum and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Please help?

    After flashing the bios mod, you can easily activate 7 on that PC via OEM:SLP method.

    Rather than make a new thread, is there a specific Dell OEM Windows 8 Pro ISO anywhere?

    Or will the HP one work on a Dell machine ?

    Try flash original bios, then upload screenshot again, please.
