    Hi,

    Things not adding up.

    1. SLIC 2.0 = VISTA
    2. Hyper-V SLIC is 2.0 = Vista

    a) Which version of vista comes with build-in Cert for SLIC-2.0, that is not OEM ?
    b) Which version of Vista has the VRTUALMICROSFT cert in it ?
    c) When did Hyper-V first have the SLIC 2.0 BIOS ?
    d) Can Vista activate on SLIC 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 ?
    e) Is there a OEM key for VRTUALMICROSFT SLIC ?
    f) Is there a way to check an ISO file to see which OEM comes build-in ?

    Thanks.

    BTW: just in case you have seen it, I am looking for the VRTUALMICROSFT 2.0 SLIC Certificate.

    a) ONLY OEM would have certificate
    b) NONE, there is none in known existence
    c) not sure, but Server 2008 I would expect (same as Vista)
    d) NO, SLIC & certificate must match, but even if they do (ie Dell had no new certificate for SLIC 2.1 - used the same as relating to SLIC 2.0 - Vista would not understand existence of SLIC 2.1, so would not activate)
    e) keys were always manufacturer independent = NOT tied to any SLIC etc
    f) OEM iso would have $OEM$ folder with certificate, check certificate, you will know manufacturer (almost) or search for iso hash, somebody might have published it

    Slight correction in d); SLICs are backward compatible so you actually can activate Vista on SLIC 2.3 with proper cert & key.

    @fbifido

    Its an example of dummy SLIC. Just like this one:

    Thanks, honestly never tried (to check backwards compatibility OR Vista itself :))
