    Quick Question, I have a ThinkPad t60 that came with Vista business x86(slic 2.0 TP-TI Marker). If I upgrade my bios to a Yen modded Thinkpad bios with a different Lenovo Marker, since there is no 2.1 for the TP-TI marker, will this effect the validation of my current Vista Installation?

    I am afraid that if I change the marker it will somehow mess up my current Vista Install from booting properly or being recognized as legit. I eventually Intend to install Windows 7, hence why I want to update the slic to 2.1

    Vista will remain activated if you have at least SP1 installed, since SLIC2.1 is backwards compatible. The Lenovo certificate will fit also since the public key data isn't changed.
