    I need help getting this to work. I want to put the 64-bit Ultimate on it but I don't know what bios it needs and what SLIC and all that. If you can help it'd be appreciated. Also, any suggestions on how to go about flashing the bios and I do know how to apply the certs and the serial, but which one should I use?

    Here are the SPECS:
