    Hi all, I replaced a faulty HP motherboard with a compatible one from ASUS.
    The O.S. (Vista Home Premium) was licensed with OEM SLIC, so now it says 6 days remaining to activate (maybe beacuse cant find SLIC table in the bios).
    Which step must I follow to fix this?
    I suppose I have to flash the bios with a SLIC modded one, but what after?
    The m/b is an M2A-VM.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, it worked perfectly.
    Now Vista license status is activated.

    Did you just request bios mod with slic 2.0 you could get one with slic 2.1 it then you could use windows 7 also if required at a later date.
