    Links to mgadiag in this post. In case it is not obvious, run mgadiag in Win7, not Win10

    Yes, I searched the bios mod threads here and found nothing clearly helpful regarding enabling slic on thinkpad x280. Maybe there is still hope.

    Good news, your firmware is eligible for KMS activation.

    Yes, as long as your antivirus don't mess with SppExtComObjHook.dll. Everything will be automated and seamless, thanks to @abbodi1406 and other contributors.

    Once @quid comes back, I hope we can get more info regarding the SSP2 binary.

    Some Chinese site back in the day had a v5.02(maybe v5.03?) version of the DOS tool and I think there were Windows versions (x86/x64) on some other Chinese site too. No idea where you'd get those these days as that was about ten years ago.
