    You need SLIC 2.1 to activate Windows 7. You have only SLIC 2.0 which will activate Vista.

    It seems you are using the Lenovo blacklisted key which was blacklisted by the new WAT update.
    Did you install the KB971033 update? Also to activate Windows 7 I think you require a Slic/cert 2.1 and you have a Slic 2.0 / Cert 2.0 on those screenshots.

    Meaning you can activate Windows Vista with that bios/cert (and some OEM:SLP Key) but not win7

    Edit: MasterDisaster beat me to it :(

    You have slic 2.0 bios. To activate win7 you need slic 2.1.
    Are you sure you used the right mod bios to flash? Where did you get the mod from?
    Also, did you have slic 2.0 before flashing? What did your machine come pre-installed with?

    According to http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5952-Win-7-amp-Server-08-R2-SLIC-2.1-Bin-Collection, SLIC 2.0 is able to activate Windows 7. As the computer being activiated is actually a Lenovo Notebook.

    I have tried another Lenovo key, but it failed again

    You have some misinformation, SLIC 2.0 will not activate Windows 7. Post you BIOS mod request here.

    They mean a SLIC 2.0 certificate I assume. That is saying you can use a slic 2.0 compatible XRM-MS file with a SLIC 2.1 in the BIOS. It does not mean that SLIC 2.0 BIOS will activate anything. Does that make sense

    That's funny - this statement is almost the first thing on the link you provided - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5952-Win-7-amp-Server-08-R2-SLIC-2.1-Bin-Collection

    "SLIC 2.1 is needed for offline activations of Windows 7 OEM SLP and Server 2008 R2 OEM SLP."
