    Hi

    I am a bit confused concerning all the informations given in the forums of digital life.

    I have my computer runnung Windows Vista in the moment with a modded bios and slic and it works pretty fine.

    If I want to change to Windows 7 and download a full version as is said in your tutorial ...

    Will it work with the same bios and slic or do I need different bios/slic combinations and new keys.
    (Do I have to work with a loader ? - This didnt work for Vista - why should it do for 7 ?)
    Is there any tutorial how to manage this.

    As you can see I am confused how to manage a chjange to Windows 7 in a secure way.

    Tnx in advance

    You'd need to update your bios mod to SLIC 2.1 if you have not done that yet because win7 needs 2.1 SLIC for activation, there are tools found on the repository for that. After that it's smooth sailing.

    Unfortunately it's 2.0

    So, as far as I understood it I have to find a new moded bios with slic 2.1

    then:

    a new cert for Windows 7 and eventually for Vista (If I want to change back)

    new OEM - keys for Windows 7
    old OEM keys will also work for Vista, no matter slic 2.0 or 2.1

    Is that so ?

    Tnx

    Thanks! I was missing 2.1 of SLIC to do it.

    if you have ami or award bios, its easy to do it yourself, if u have phoenix bios u probably have to look for a modded one or make a request in a proper thread.
    w7 certs are compatible with vista, so if u mod it to slic 2.1 you will still be able to activate your vista.

    for w7 u need w7 OEM:SLP keys
    for vista u need vista OEM:SLP keys
    (all of them can be found on MDL)
