    Hi - Can someone upload the Dimension 4700 A10 modded BIOS or point me to where it is posted on the site? I have been looking for an hour with no success. I keep running into broken links. Thanks!

    Would it help if I provided a RWEverything report? How would I do this? Do I just dump the ACPI tables as a .RW file? This would be for a current request for a Dell PowerEdge T30. I need it with a 2.5 SLIC.

    SLIC 2.0 is needed for offline activation of Windows Vista and Server 2008 OEM SLP.
    SLIC 2.1 is needed for offline activation of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 OEM SLP.
    SLIC 2.2 is needed for offline activation of Windows Server 2012 OEM SLP.
    SLIC 2.3 is needed for offline activation of Windows Server 2012 R2 OEM SLP.
    SLIC 2.4 is needed for offline activation of Windows Server 2016 OEM SLP.
    SLIC 2.5 is needed for offline activation of Windows Server 2019 OEM SLP.

    SLICs are backward compatible.

    add. you must modify VM's bios with SLIC 2.1 to do it (llok here )

    Thank you.

    So, SLIC 2.5 would do both 7 and Server 2019? :D. Take it two files stay the same and two new keys?

    Where can I find the three/four 2.5 Dell SLIC info files?

    Yes,
    SLIC 2.5 does Server 2019 OEM SLP, Server 2016 OEM SLP, ..., Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 OEM SLP, Windows Vista and Server 2008 OEM SLP.
    Just install Dell Cert. and proper OEM:SLP key

    SLICs are backward compatible.

    Should add at this moment, I have a barebones server. Plan is to update the BIOS to 2.5 first before any installing.

    I have a Windows 7 USBF I and a friend have made, that boots Server into 7 (uses RAM) and then I can run x86 programs...

    So, I used the 32 bit version of the BIOS flasher...

    I have patched some BIOSs myself before, but I’d like to understand more how the SLIC works; what is needed in the BIOS rom.

    SLIC 2.1 is present in default BIOS.
    Is switched off by default...
    Have activated it with ASSET.COM

    With yours flashed, I now have 2.5!!! :D
