    Tried with the bios by Fzeven from this post http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/27608

    Installed Vista Ultimate x86 without key.
    Installed Asus OEM cert using slmgr.vbs - Installed fine
    Installed Asus Key using slmgr.vbs - Installed fine

    Windows still not activated. :(

    First attempt with slmgr.vbs it gave me some slui.exe error with the 932CC key.

    Help guys !

    To check if the mod is working, please install AcpiScope, go to file---->load information----> from bios, save and upload the *.ATS file.

    ats file

    @Yen: As asked by you, here's the ats file for my board.

    Edit:
    Installed one of the older modded bios for the my mobo from this site i.e., Biostar TA690G 5.X_R69AMC13.BST_Slic.
    Installed the key ending in 932CC.
    Installed the OEM cert.

    Vista is activated !! :)
    Installed SP1 - still activated !!

    Thanks for your help Yen.

    But please do have a look at the attached file.
    So we can atleast know if the new bios had an issue !
