    Successful with Asus P5K-C

    Successfully used slictool1.28 to mod P5KC BIOS 1203 using the included DELL SLIC 2.1

    Then successfully activated using leaked Win 7 Utimate OEM Product key and old Dell Vista Cert.

    slictool1.28 even has a built in certificate checker to make sure you have the correct files!

    Thanks! (Win 7 ultimate x64)

    I have a question regarding last step..

    17. Now flash your bios according to the suggestion of your motheboard manufacturer's recommendations.

    My mainboard is ASRock and I can flash my bios from windows, so I get an *.exe file which cannot be unarchived by winRar nor 7zip. So I used AMI Slic Mod and selected the exe file, after doing everything in the tutorial everything seemed to work fine, and in the end I got some new files:
    1. AFUWIN.ROM
    2. AFUWIN_SLIC.ROM
    3. 1B.BIN
    4. 1B_SLIC.BIN

    Now regardning last step. Do I flash my bios normally using the .exe file or do I need to use the .rom files? (I'm not sure if those can even be used.. )

    SLP is used for activating XP (Yes they just text files with manufacture names)
    SLIC 2.0 is used for activating Vista
    SLIC 2.1 is used for activating Win 7 & Vista
    ;)
