    That is what I want to check the cert for. The key if a different key the then l. key so it might be possible.

    The easiest way is to boot from the iso in Microsoft Virtual PC, install it, and then check with the SLIC dump toolkit that can be found here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/6925

    Will give you all the info about the cert, key inside the OEM image.

    But it is also a rather longish way...

    It would be nice to have a util that just opens the certificate & shows it in plain language

    Another possible way, without installing windows, is to use one of ANDYP's bios mod tools, and use the compare feature to compare a slic to a cert, it will tell you if it matches. So if you think you have a dell cert, select the dell 2.1 slic, the cert, and click compare. That's the easiest way that I am aware of to compare a known SLIC to a cert to see if it matches....

    EDIT:
    Chad beat me to it. Basically the same thing, just a different program I believe.

    Thanks, is it available somewhere?

    (I mean the standalone, that I was hoping for one)

    Oh, i just deleted the javascript check, now you just either upload single or both items,

    I'm not going to split them up as i see no benefit in doing that, the purpose of the online check is to verify authenticity of SLIC/Cert and check if both items match
