    OT:
    Try to find all instances of "ALASKA" w/ UEFITool. In this bios it found 30 entries, not all are visible in hex-editor, some parts are compressed, and not all strings may to be modified/overwritten.
    Be careful: For modding DON'T use UEFITOOL NE. This can result in non-functional bios.

    OA2+PK+marker has to be inserted in GUID 8C8CE578-8A3D-4F1C-9935-896185C32DD3, but both volumes are to small to hold the code.
    I guess, the higher-level volume (GUID: 9E21FD93-9C72-4C15-8C4B-E77F1DB2D792) has to be extended. I tried a similar mod a few month ago, but did't get feedback if it worked or bricked. ;)

    The string in Fid/SignOn can directly edited in hex-editor (as far i know). Some bioses contain empty dummy-tables for marker/pubkey, but i guess this one is newer and they omit OA2-activation complete.

    Possible.
    The OA2-module is integrated, so its your turn, if you have doubts to work.

    It seems to have worked. I was able to flash with this mod and get video to monitor. When i check with slic dump it shows it has slic 2.1 and matches certificate. I haven't tried windows7 activation with it (I am running 11) but it is good to know it can be done. Thanks for the help guys!!
