So I just purchased 2 of these laptops. Love the hardware - absolutely refuse to run WIN8. Took backup image then reformatted installed WIN7 enterprise and will not KMS activate because it apparently sees SLIC info. However, SLIC toolkit shows: SLIC Status: INVALIDATED X&RSDT != Pubkey == Marker Version 2.1 Digital Signature OK XSDT: <BLANK> Pubkey: SECCSDLH43STAR RSDT: <BLANK> Marker: SECCSDLH43STAR Bios Info Vendor: AMerican Megatrends Inc. Date: 10/23/2012 Size: 1024k Version: P03ABF Type: AMI BIOS /ACPI 2.0 This is while running under CMS bios mode or UEFI+Legacy Mode. Can anyone help me get friggin WIN7 working I have never had so many friggin problems getting activated. There is not even one BIOS download for this laptop so I'm not sure how to even get a modded version - I either want to REMOVE the damn SLIC stuff if it's incomplete and preventing me from KMS activating, or fix the SLIC info to OEM activate it. It's dumb that I bought it with a WIN8 license so I'm legal but can't downgrade it. Thanks!
