    Basically, I have an Acer M3900G-U3802 that came with Windows 7, and I want to upgrade the BIOS to include SLIC 2.2, how do I do this? I've even purchased an HP that came with Windows 8, so if I had to, I could copy that SLIC table out.

    Windows 8 doesn't use SLIC 2.2, only Server 2012 does. Windows 8 uses MSDM which is an online activation.

    (That's the essence of the two threads above).

    That's why, on Server 2012 you could still use Daz Loader for to activate while on Windows 8 that didn't works any more because Windows 8 didn't uses SLIC's anymore!
