Thanks for clearing it up for me
i have not read the whole thread, so i just post what i did:
i installed the dell cert onto a machine with a dell-slic bios and i used this key from the first posts. it works just fine. windows is activated.
if this key is going to be blacklisted i dont care. there will be other ultimate-keys as soon as there will be machines with win7 sold out there...
for now: it works perfectly well. thank you for sharing.
why do i only see **** instead of the key?
You need to login to view this posts content.
Does this apply no matter what SLIC you have used, or is the Dell one different somehow? Ie would a HP 2.1 SLIC activated machine just be the same, ie just change the key when one shows up, No having to replace certificates or re-flash the bios?
I assume that you would have to wait for a Specific HP Ultimate key (or keys) to be leaked or is an OEM Ultimate key from any vendor likely to work ( as is the case now with the current Lenovo one)
They must not have that feature/add-on enabled in their copy of vBulletin that they are using for this forum, otherwise I am sure they would have done that.
Peeps can always try searching on google considering the key didn't come from here originaly
Hp ultimate key
what is the ultimate key to activate with HP.xml ect.....
Its working for everyone else with 2.1 slic
Is the key still valid?
yes off course it s valid.
Didn't Microsoft blacklist this key?
No... It's not that easy to blacklist it, it will happen with SP1 for 7 till that time users can enjoy unless they get caught by WGA!
Will WGA be able to catch you if you flash your BIOS with a SLIC 2.1 modified one?
WGA will only pop up a message that your windows is not genuine, but WGA doesnt get used after 22 october. So your safe till then, also by then new oem master keys will be leaked and they cant black list that.
Correct me if i am wrong
Of course anything is possible, but it would be a monumental task to design WGA so that it can distinguish from an OEM BIOS that was done by the actual OEM, vs. one that was modified by the end user. The chance for false positive and pi$$ing off legitimate customers of a huge OEM by flagging them as not genuine is just too great for them to attempt this, IMHO.
