    Hi,

    I'm new when it comes to SLIC, I've just had my BIOS modded to SLIC 2.1, I've flashed my BIOS and have confirmed it now has SLIC 2.1.

    Stupid question - how now do I activate Windows 7? (I'm running an untouched RTM 13685 version)

    Thanks in advance

    You need a matching cert which can be found here. Copy it to your C:, open Command Prompt as Admin, then type the following commands.

    Code:
    slmgr.vbs -ipk *****************************
    Note that after you run the command, wait for a pop up message box which tells that the product key has changed to *****************************, then type this

    Code:
    slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\DELL.XRM-MS
    DELL.XRM-MS is the filename of your cert. If it's HP, it should be like C:\HP.XRM-MS

    Note that the commands are vice-versa, you can input the second one first, following with the first one.
