    Have a Acer 8735ZG laptop, it came with pre-installed Linux on it.
    1. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate
    2. Used the phoenix mod tool to integrate SLIC 2.1 into the latest BIOS (at the moment - version 1.07)
    3. Used the DOS flasher and flashed it successfully.
    4. Installed certificate and key
    SLIC ToolKit V3.2 reports Dump OK ! (But SLIC OEM ID or Digital Signature Error !)
    Windows 7 not activated, error code 0xC004E003

    Found in thread 13594 that there are some "Dell Service Tools", and they helped for Dell laptops with pre-installed Linux

    Sorry, I can't insert a link here due to lack of posts
    There are SLIC ToolKit screenshots of pages 1 and 2, and original and modded BIOSes in archive:

    Thank you for quick reply, Loxxx!
    Sorry, but nothing changed
    Is it a different mod or just another flasher?

    P.S. Already found out that your mod is different (BIOSCOD02.ROM and HOLE2.ROM differs)
    (phoenix mod tool unpackes the BIOS into dump directory, so I could compare the mods)
