    Can you post screen shots from the SLIC Dumper tool.

    You'll need a new SLIC 2.1 BIOS. You currently have a SLIC 2.0 BIOS, which is valid for Windows Vista only.

    Hat is correct, you need SLIC 2.1 - Check this forum it's possible your BIOS has already been modded (many retail MOBO's already done).

    You can install windows 7 then flash or flash then install win7. Whichever order you like just remember that you mush flash your bios before activating win7 with the certificate and the OEM SLP key dude.
