    Hello Everyone,

    I Couldn't Find the A13 Version of my Bios for my Dell Inspiron N4010, So I modded the bios on my Own using the phoenix tool(V 1.90).
    Config of the Tool:
    manufacturer = Dell
    slic = Dell.BIN
    Certificate = 2.1 DELL.XRM-MS
    method= SSV2

    unchecked Replace Split OEM/Table Ids from Advanced Settings

    Clicked GO

    The Mod was successful.

    Flashed the Bios.

    Installed Dell Certificate / Dell ultimate OEM key using Key-Branding tool
    When i checked for activation windows wasn't activated.

    So i checked the key/ certificate status using Slic ToolKit V3.2

    In status it's showing as Dump ok! HPQOEMSLIC-MPC_V2.1

    so i Installed the HP OEM Ultimate key and 2.1 HP.XRM-MS certificate

    Checked for Activation But still windows wasn't activated.

    What am i doing wrong here?? :confused:

    I have attached the Slic Toolkit status & Windows Status.

    Please help me on this !!

    Uninstall Loader and re-check Slic with Slictoolkit after reboot
