    If it had a Vista sticker, it came pre-installed with Windows Vista, therefore the slic version should be 2.0. You should run RW-Everything, go to ACPI tables and upload a screenshot of the codes here. It will show if you have slic 2.1 or not. If you don't, the likely option is that you have a loader.

    It has the blacklisted lenovo key installed. Change the key and validate at MS.

    About the bios, The manufacturer seems to be FIC but it has HPQOEM slic. So it has to be a loader.

    If you think it is not a loader, no harm in using Daz' program and click on Uninstall. This is will not only remove the loader but also install the default key.
