    I just bought a DELL Hybrid 140g desktop computer and I'd like to activate Windows 7 on it. The last bios version from DELL.COM I flashed on it already has SLIC 2.1 table in it, but the bios obviously is locked and there is a greyed out field in Bios menu which says something like "Dell Bios Service Tag - Edit". I tried the Dell Bios Reset Cd which I have used numerous times before, but that svctag version isn't compatible with this bios or this type of computer.

    Is there a newer svctag version out that works for this bios?
    Can I extract the rom or the hdr file from the bios. I could not do that, using the -writeromfile command.


    Here's the bios. Loading it in Phoenix mod tool, doesn't help. It goes on flashing it straight away.

    Thanks and waiting for your input!
