    Simply add the HP cert into Vista.

    The mod you use (bootloader or modded bios) has changed the SLIC 2.1 key of your bios. You need a new certificate (HP) for Vista now.

    When you have a OEM SLIC Bios (real or emulated) and the corresponding OEM certificate (in your case, the HP cert), all OEM:SLP key will work. So keep the current key and simply add the cert into vista.

    On my laptop, I have a (official) SLIC 2.0 Toshiba bios + OEM certificate from Toshiba + Dell OEM key. Everything works.

    On my netbook, I have a (modded) bios (Dell Slic 2.1) + Del OEM certificate + Lenovo OEM:SLP key and it works.
