Guys please help!
I have an ASUS Gryphon Z87 motherboard (I unfortunately can not post the link to the BIOS at ASUS's site or any other attachment since IM a noob). But I can not seem to activate my Dell OEM Win7 SP1 x64 installation no matter what combo of methods I use. It is a .cap file. Can anyone help?

Thank you for responding so quickly, your the best!
Unfortunately, my Dell OEM install did not show as activated upon reboot. I flashed the BIOS via FLASHBACK feature on the motherboard. I am attempting a new install and can post back the results of that if you like but initial attempt did not activate.
Once again, thank you for being so prompt!
Doesnt anything have to be DELL branded in the process since my OEM disc is looking for a Dell branded PC?
What if you created a new BIOS file with ASUS manuf. but instead input DELL branded information, cert, etc? That way the DELL media can work... I remember doing something similar for another PC a few years ago and it worked out...
I appreciate your prompt responses, many many thanks!
Here you go, dont mind the extra space I put in to avoid the noob restrictions placed on me
So all this methods are "for desktop motherboards only" ?
Cause I just got a new notebook h**p://***.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/K95VM/#support_Download and I really really don't want to brick it
If it's not just for desktop motherboards what method do you recommend ? cause after reading the thread I'm a bit confuse (especially on "how to" for "Using MMTool." I mean I've watched the video / guide but I didn't understand at the end which file I flash (which is the slic file) ?)
Ask him or send PM.
So, I've got the opposite problem; I need to remove the SLIC that's been permanently installed. board is Asus X79 Deluxe
Tried using FTK (in Windows) but the region is write protected; no sign of PchInitDxe in the UEFI capsule either so nothing there to patch, although no doubt there's probably a differently named file that could be.
if I boot from DOS the BIOS area of the flash chip is still unwritable.
My ultimate goal is to get a SLIC 2.3 onto it to replace the SLIC 2.2 - using "New Module" again doesn't do anything, no doubt due to the existing SLIC. Dynamic is also useless.
Had the same situation and problem with P8H77M-Pro and solved it with Aptio afuwin. You need to delete old data from ASUSBKP section in system BIOS, and all Asus bios-updating tools avoid touching it. So, here are the steps:
1. Download latest BIOS, mod it with SLIC 2.3 by "new module" method and flash by EZ Flash 2 or bupdater.
2. In any x64 Windows OS download amiflash.zip and extract Aptio Afuwin64 folder. Open it and run AFUWINGUI.EXE. Click Open and select official or your modded (doesn't matter) .cap file. On the opened SETUP tab uncheck all boxes and check only box #2 under "Non-critical block" caption. Press Flash and wait till it's green.
3. Reboot. Enjoy.
You posted a few days too late - I pulled the chip, rigged it up to a BusPirate and enjoyed a whole 40 minutes of reading, hexediting and flashing time >_>
is there a way so that I can add msdm table from any brand to asus bios?
Have the same situation with an Asus Z87I-PRO that I want to put a SLIC 2.3 in. Tried the afuwin but get the error: "Firmware does not have flash (AFUWINGUI) support." Any help?
