    BIOS is not SLIC 2.0 Compliant

    SLIC table should be 374 Bytes (decimal) or 176 hex length to be compliant.
    The RSDT table length is 60.
    Of course, the SLIC table must be present as the first test of possible 2.0 compliance.
    Incidently, I am not a BIOS Guru but this info is available in the bloggs on this site and it is verified in the length of my modded BIOS.

    SLIC Table Entry

    Sorry, I got confused here with SLA and SLIC: A SLIC table usually implies that the BIOS is SLP 2.0 compliant (with a couple of exceptions) but the absence of that table does not mean that the BIOS is not SLP 2.0 compliant: only that it is not SLIC 2.0 compliant and will not activate OEM Vista in it's current state. The link below (which I am sure you have read) says that almost all BIOS may be modded but that doesn't help a lot when you're trying to figure out whether it will work for you or not. If the HP computer BIOS is (1)not very old (eight or nine months), (2)I couldn't find a modded BIOS (or maybe an updated HP BIOS), (3) It is not a laptop, I might bite the bullet and try to mod it. Other wise I would use the OEM emulation until I could figure it all out.
