    Yes it should work for you also. No need to mod the bios:
    You may post a rw-everything report first the check for OEMTableID CB-01..
    How to do:

    Post it here before you go on.

    Get the SLP2MARK form here: (W7 compatible)
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/96204

    boot into pure DOS and apply:
    MARKER.EXE /CLRMARK
    MARKER.EXE /SETMARK=SLP2MARK.BIN

    (case sensitive!)

    This method is very safe, safer than to flash a bios!

    Can this method be applied to *any* Lenovo notebook?

    Just curious - can this tool be used to update the windows marker for any Lenovo notebooks or just the ones with partially mapped/hidden SLIX table?

    I have a T400 with an existing SLIC2.0/Vista compatible windows marker. Modding the bios to insert a SLIC2.1 compatible marker for W7 activation is now pretty easy thanks to the detailed instructions provided by Yen, but there are a couple of things that I don't like about this approach:
    1. This results in two ACPI SLIC tables (unless the original one is renamed to something else in BIOSCOD02.ROM, which requires still more work).
    2. This also means that every subsequent bios update from Lenovo would need to be similarly patched before being applied to keep W7 activated.

    I think a cleaner way to do this would be to overwrite the original marker and update it to 2.1 rather than inserting a new one. Unfortunately, I cannot find it anywhere in the bios update (I could only find the public key part in SmartCardPAS01.rom). It seems that this was also programmed directly into the EEPROM at pre-install and is untouched by any subsequent bios updates. So my question is: is it possible using this tool? We already have the LENOVOTP-7U SLIC2.1 posted in the SLIC collection forum.

    Thanks!

    I have the same question, my Lenovo 3000 G410 comes with Windows Vista Home Basic and SLIC 2.0 table. Is SLP2MARK method safe, or it is not the good way?

    There is also modified Y410 bios, but user huedn reports here that it also have 2 slic tables (he send info to yen and waiting for reply)

    so, is it safe to use SLP2MARK method with bios wich already have slic 2.0 (vista basic) to get slic 2.1 (w7)? how many slic tables will be after operation?
