    My mate brought round a new computer with Home Premium installed and it had a SLIC that I've never seen before 'DSGLTD'. Here is what it said in everest:

    [ SLIC: Software Licensing Description Table ]

    ACPI Table Properties:
    ACPI Signature SLIC
    Table Description Software Licensing Description Table
    Memory Address BFEE6FC0h
    Table Length 374 bytes
    OEM ID DSGLTD
    OEM Table ID DSGVISTA
    Creator ID AWRD


    Anyway I managed to extract the OEM certificate from the Tokens.dat [Attached]. I didn't manage to get the SLIC from the BIOS, does anyone know how to backup a current BIOS?

    Anyone know anything about this? Is it new?

    Use HWDIRECT to dump the SLIC table. In HWDIRECT, goto FILE, then NEW, then MEMORY DUMP. A memory dump pane should open up within HWDIRECT. In the PHYSICAL ADDRESS box enter "BFEE6FC0" without the quotes. In the SIZE box enter "176" without the quotes. Then click DUMP. Then click SAVE from the toolbar and name it to whatever you want with a .bin extension. You're done. Upload it and I'm sure someone can test it to see if it works. If it does, it would be a valuable addition to the current database if it isn't already in there. What brand and model was the new computer anyway?

    Wow, cool a new SLIC!:)

    Thanks a lot in advance! Yes this instructions will save the SLIC!
    If you don't get HWdirect to work (probably at 64-bit Vista), install acpiscope, goto file--->load information from bios. Save and upload the *.ats file.
