    Hello folks

    Does anyone know where to get a Virtual PC hacked exe that works with SLIC code from a HP Compaq tc4400 Tablet PC, I know HP has several different SLIC codes and not all activate (tried the certificate from tc4400 on a HP dv9008nr laptop and it didn't activate)

    I only know of 2 HP SLIC (HPQOEMSLIC-MPC and HPQOEMSLIC-CPC) and they both use the same certificate. If you came across a different HP SLIC other than the 2 mentioned, I would love to take a peek. I would be willing to modify the Virtual PC 2007 exe for you but I need a .ats report from ACPIScope from the tc4400 in case the SLIC is different from the 2 mentioned above. Also upload a .ats report from the dv9008nr and I may be able to tell you why it didn't activate. I also need the certificate from the tc4400 so I can test the Virtual PC 2007 exe after modifying it.

    Install ACPIScope, then goto "File"----->"Load ACPI information"----->"From BIOS" and after it load the information, click the "save file" toolbar button and save it with the default .ats extension and upload it.

    I am a little puzzled. According to the HP website, the tc4400 came preinstalled with XP or FreeDOS so I am quite curious as to how you extracted a Vista certificate from it.
