    I am currently planning to dual windows 7 and vista on a machine modded with a slic 2.1 bios .win7 already running and working fine ,instantly activated with the matching cert and key .
    but will the same 2.1 cert and a vista key activate vista ,I dont want to go down the road of loaders .

    It should work ok it really depends on actual bios some still use certificate 2.0 for both vista and windows 7 if it don't work just download certificate 2.0 for vista install.

    Ya. Just install the 2.1 cert that is compatible with the slic on Windows 7 + OEM:SLP key for 7.
    On Vista, install a 2.0 cert, compatible with the slic, + OEM:SLP key for Vista.
    You're done.
    It's pretty simple.

    @ Ruixituh, his 2.1 certificate will probably work with vista i would try that first before trying 2.0 certificate.
