    Hi Guys,

    I am a bit confused.

    First My Spec:

    Gigabyte Ga-G33M-S2L
    Bios F3K [Beta but working well]
    AWARD Bios Mod Tool

    Ok I downloaded SLIC 2.1 from the Thread:

    It contains Gigabyte SLIC 2.1 with certificate.

    Is that SLIC 2.1 for Windows 7 Ultimate??

    I downloaded the OEM Folder for Gigabyte Ultimate from the Thread:

    If I insert the Gigabyte SLIC 2.1 and use that OEM Folder i mentioned above will Windows 7 Ultimate Get Activated.

    I ask bcoz the OEM Folder consist of Key that belongs to DELL for 7 Ultimate.

    I've also read that Keys are not Brand Specific is that True??

    Thx in Advance Guys.

    If you used both the Gigabyte Slic2.1 bin and certificate from Win 7 & Server 08 R2 SLIC 2.1 Bin Collection to mod your bios. Then either compaire it against certificate in OEM folder you downloaded or just replace it with the one from Win 7 & Server 08 R2 SLIC 2.1 Bin Collection.

    ok got that i'll replace the certi from the OEM folder..
    But one question remains unanswered, Will Windows 7 ultimate be Activated or Some other??
    Is the Version to be Activated Key Dependent or SLIC Dependent??
