    Hi to all!

    In the moment i have a 2.0 HP certificate installed on my Windows 7 machine. Now where the 2.1 certificates are available, is it possible to import with the

    slmgr -ilc C:\CERT.xrm-ms

    commando a 2.1 cert over the existing one?

    I mean, it is just cosmetic, my system is activated and is running well with 2.0 cert, but possibly Microsoft could block 2.0 certs?

    Thanks for every hint you are giving me!

    Yes. I went from a 2.0 lenovo to a 2.1 asus (purely for cosmetic reasons). Obviously I changed the bios too.

    It required a couple of reboots to clear the not-genuine messages that appeared during the changeover process, but as you're doing something simpler (not changing manufacturer & bios) you'll probably not hit this.

    I know, i quoted it out of the original message (I fixed this)... but thought it would be wise to mention this to avoid confusion, both -rilc or -upk do not harm your system in anyway

    When the BIOS of your computer has a SLIC table to identify that it qualifies for OEM-SLP activation Windows checks the corresponding Digital certificate is installed and if the two match and an OEM-SLP key is installed Windows activates itself without connecting to the Microsoft key servers.

    You need all 3 for activation - loaders simply present a fake table to windows at boot time, install the corresponding certificate and key and windows considers it is activated correctly.

    I hope that explains it OK - after dealing with this stuff since Vista came out it is still as clear as mud to me - but it works.

    My fav question, lol.
    To be short - nope, they all have version 2.0, so called "2.1" just have more recent date of issue (from year 2009).
