    I am trying out an HP Tablet PC and wanted to see how it runs on W7. Needless to say it runs great.

    The not so great thing is however that Daz Loader seems to fail. Maybe I should try something else?

    The Tablet PC in question is this:
    HP 2710p

    Also a PDF with Specs:

    Do you need more info on this to be able to suggest a solution? What BIOS mod may be relevant for HP?

    Have you posted on Daz's thread? He's been very active in helping people with problems related to his loader.

    If you intend to do a bios mod or use a pre-modded bios, do some research and be more cautious. There are some risks modding a bios. It would probably be safer to use one that was modded and tested by reliable sources instead of modding it yourself. Of course there are better tools now though....

    Is this even possible on a Tablet PC???
    Somehow I got this feeling saying that DAZ Loader will and won't work at all on a Tablet PC.

    Maybe and only maybe Chew7 could work because that doesn't concern (Bios Emulation), SLICs and OEM SLP keys etc.

    Anemeros the creator of Chew7 and former Chew-WGA is in the final stage of completing 1.0 and with the latest RC7 it's almost ready now.
    Try the latest Chew-WGA 0.9 version in the meantime, if results isn't positive then wait for 1.0, that might work.

    But since I don't know anything about Tablet PCs I can't really say what works and not but I'm almost certain DAZ loader won't work (it's a strong feeling)

    Good luck and report back if it was successfull!

    Tablet PC's, as any other PC's, have motherboards. And, a tablet, is a pc, therefore needs a bios to load everything. So i really think Loaders or a bios mod will do the trick.
    There is a Bios available to download in the HP website.

    What OS did the PC come pre-installed with?

    Maybe I confused Tablet PC for an Pocket PC or something else, honestly don't know anything about that stuff since I only use desktops and occasional laptops.
    Anyway if it is like you're saying then DAZ loader should work in theory.

    I leave this discussion to the professionals.

    On HP's site it lists Windows 7 as an option for OS - I assume you have Vista. Vista has an SLIC activation mechanism but is version 2.0 - 7 needs version 2.1.

    There may be some conflict between memory tables between the genuine SLIC table in the BIOS - if present - and the emulated one the loader is trying to load.

    I'd ask Daz for instructions before I'd consider screwing with patched system files which M$ can easily spot - after all they know which system files control licensing and can easily tell patched ones and simply restore them. M$ will always try to break systems with patched system files before they tackle loaders - they say it time and again - pirated systems have been tampered with and may contain harmful code - a loader simply presents a "fake" licence table - no file tampering.

    Ruixituh is right. A tablet pc is just like a laptop but with additional features such as a touch screen and an lcd that rotates and can be folded down facing up.

    I used the older 1.7.7r of daz on a fujitsu tablet some time ago and it worked. I did have to delete a hidden partition for it to work though.

    The OP is encouraged to choose which ever activation solution he is comfortable with, bios mod, chew, daz, infiniterearm etc...
    what ever works is fine.

    *check the hp site: you might not need a loader or patch. I just browsed through it but i think there is a new bios available which may have slic 2.1 dated jan 2010

    The Tablet had a hidden partition with a HP Sys restore for XP (I deleted it since the HDD is only 80GB) and an OEM XP key is available so should I want XP that is a very tiny problem. I will give it another go tinite and post the errors I get from Daz, just in case.

    The reason I did not post on the Daz thread is obvious: I do not know what "should" work on this machine.

    Bios has been updated to latest available.

    Download slictoolkit 3.2 from this link http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...lKit-x86-x64-(Includes-PKey-amp-Cert.-Backup)

    Verify if the latest bios you updated to has slic 2.1
    If so, all you need to do is insert a certificate and key for HP as canouna mentioned.


    * Please refer to section 6-f of the Windows 7 Repository on how to insert key and cert if you have slic 2.1.
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126-The-Official-Windows-7-Repository?p=87550#post87550

    If you do not have slic 2.1, you have other options, such as a bios mod, which you can request at the biosmod request thread. You can also try seeking help from Daz on his thread.
    You can also use chew7, infiniteRearm and other solutions but it is best to find a soution for it one by one.

    I would be interested to know which version of the loader was tried with the post being made on the 28th and me releasing 1.8.5 on the 29th. I would expect 1.8.5 to activate the system just fine as 1.8.4 was known to have issues which have now been addressed.

    Thanks Daz for posting.
    I tried v. 1.8.0 which failed.
    Then I went for 1.8.5 which suceeded. :worthy:

    Let me also say that I do not really care much about which activation method I use (Loaders, BiosMods, others...) but I tend to keep using the one I first tried (and worked), which happened to be Daz Windows Loader. Why Daz? Well, I am a bit jumpy when it comes to BIOS stuff, I have not read up much about the available methods, but if they do involve the BIOS, as suggested by their names, I will most certainly, right or wrong, try to avoid them.

    I did a small test: went to M$ Downloads and downloaded PhotoStory. In order to download that, you have to pass a WGA check via ActiveX. I have no idea of the validity of this small test of mine, but it passed. I have Genuine Microsoft Software. ;)

    I hope this small report to be of some use to someone else. Hang in there guys!

    As you said it doesn't matter which method you choose as long as it works.
    Glad it worked out for you!
