    Did you purchase your laptop without Windows Vista? If you did, search on the forums for a HP BIOS DMI tool to reveal the SLIC table masked by the BIOS.

    Otherwise, if it came with Windows Vista, it's safe to flash the latest version of the BIOS provided by HP. I don't think you need to mod the BIOS to run Windows 7 at all.

    Yes it came with a Windows Vista. So do you mean the latest bios version has 2.1 SLIC on it? I already checked if my current bios, it only has 2.0 SLIC. What I wanted is to do a fresh install to Windows 7 with OEM SLP Key activation.

    Check if your current bios version is the same as the latest bios as per the earlier post link. If its older why not update the bios and then check if it has 2.1 slic.
    If it doen't have 2.1 slic check the thread at "Bios Mod Requests" http://forums.mydigitallife.net/forums/33-Bios-Mod-Requests.-Post-Requests-Only
    Post a request on that thread for a bios mod.
