    Hi, I need some help activating windows 7
    I have a modded bios and I'm downloading windows 7. I'm going to do an upgrade from vista HP SP2 and would like to know the process to activate windows 7.

    If you already have a v2.1 SLIC in your BIOS and you have a copy of Windows 7 (Ultimate or Pro only at the present time) then you only need to install W7 with NO KEY, and then follow steps (sections) 6F-a. Install a certificate & 6F-b. Install a key in The Official Windows 7 Repository

    With a proper SLIC in your BIOS you DO NOT need a loader or act*vator. You can use OPA's tool if you really want to but I would suggest typing in the required commands manually so you know exactly what is happening and can repeat it if necessary (future re-install or different PC, etc.)
