    hello,

    i have a lenovo g580 preloaded with windows8, i reformatted it and deleted all the partition and install windows 7, is there any way to add slic 2.1 in its bios, i tried to install the certificate and win keys but still wont activate, probably my only option is windows loader.

    regards,
    noyp

    Is the win8 key embedded in the uefi/bios safe after adding a slic mod? (<- got an answer)
    Is there any way actually to rewrite the embedded key?

    I did a similar thing for a friend on their z580. I wrote a guide here. I guess it is exactly the same except use the files offered on this thread to copy to the dos bootable usb flash stick. On my guide is a link to download the tool to make the bootable usb. Useful just to check you didn't miss anything.
