    I have an HP Pavilion desktop 9200T and I used the SLIC2.1 bios upgrade found here http://slics.myftp.org/Hewlett Pack...er_5.37_(sp42767.exe)_SLIC2.1-HP_halaween.zip

    to update it to SLIC 2.1.

    I then downloaded a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM ISO image from BitTorrent and installed it. I assumed it was only for BIOS modders and wouldn't install program based SLIC.

    However after the latest Microsoft activation update my machine became unactivated and I noticed that my SLIC2.1 cert is for Dell.

    Here is what the SLIC Toolkit says:

    I forgot to mention that when I try the Windows 7 Loader program's BIOS MOD function, there is no choice for HP *and* Windows 7 Ultimate. There are no HP Windows 7 Ultimate keys in the ini file.

    You might have installed the loader. Uninstall it and install the key and cert manually.

    Hi. Thanks for the response! How do I know if I have a loader? Where do I look for it and do I uninstall it using Windows 7 Loader by Daz? Thanks!!!

    Yes, you need to use Windows 7 Loader by Daz to uninstall it. A random named file or grldr will be present in your System Reserved partition.

    Thanks. I tried your 5.37 BIOS mod and that worked. I still have to force a revalidation but for now, I don't get any message about non-genuine Windows
