    Hi, I have read all of the sticky threads but it seems I just don't understand what to do next:

    I have done all of the following only:

    1. Downloaded a working bios mod from this forum. It contains the following files:
    FLASHSPI.EXE -- DELL-DD981F15.XRM-MS -- 965PDS3_SLIC.F14 -- autoexec.bat
    . My BIOS is Gigabyte 965P DS3 version F14.

    2. I used Gigabyte's official BIOS flashing app to flash 965PDS3_SLIC.F14 to the BIOS. My BIOS has been flashed with 965PDS3_SLIC.F14.

    SLIC Toolkit reveals:

    3. I've ran
    slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\965PDS3_F14_DELL
    slmgr.vbs -ipk <SLP key>

    However, my Windows 7 SP1 is still showing as a trial that will expire in 3 days.

    I would be grateful if someone could tell me precisely which steps I need to take next in order to activate my fresh installation of Windows 7 SP1.

    Thank you!


    I used a default key. Instead I used a set of keys available from the website 'techdoors.wordpress.com' - That key now works.

    @ Molkoke, you have not installed OEM:SLP key the key you are using is windows 7 ultimate default key

    to remove key use

    slmgr.vbs /upk

    and install OEM:SLP key with

    slmgr.vbs -ipk 342DG-6YJR8-X92GV-V7DCV-P4K27

    OEM SLP key are posted on MDL Windows-7-OEM-SLP-Key-Collection
