    Lol, sarcasm or real?
    :p

    I didn't really activated it yes. Since I'm using the Chinese activator.
    I just flahsed the bios.
    I'll wait for a clean install (maybe i do it now) and see if it activates ok.

    Other question.
    Do i need to type the key when i'm installing or activate when Windows is installed?

    Thanks for you're help!

    Bye, MerolaC

    Hi.

    I'm using motherboard Jetway PA78M4. I have tried to mod bios with these tool, using HP slic, slp and cert, and successfully. But I haven't upgrade bios yet.

    Is there any risk if I upgrade with modded bios?

    Only the slight risk of bricking your motherboard, other than that if it
    goes as it should you'll be able to activate windows 7 with no problems.

    After you have flashed it use the standard procedure:

    slmgr -ilc <your *.XRM-MS>
    slmgr -ipk <OEM key for your W7 version>

    Verify activation:
    slmgr -dlv

    Thanks a lot for this tutorial and the people who wrote the bios patcher!

    I've installed the 2.1 slics on my two MSI boards in no time :)

    What's wrong with this?

    My MB's Model is GigaByte GA-MA78GM-S2H(Ver 1.0) I download F8 BIOS file from GigaByte's site and use Awardtool 1.13 Mod. But when I load original bios file and press "Verify" Button then pop this window but I don't add Slic file in this time.

    View attachment 1415

    That's normal, and it's stated in the first post.
    Don't worry.

    It only happens with award tool.

    Excuse me if I'm mistaken, but, shouldn't be?...

    13. Next, choose the certificate. The SLIC and the Certificate have to match. The tools will let you know if they do match or if they do not match.
