    I have installed Windows7 Ultimate 32 bit on Dell Inspiron 1545 on partition C.(Activated using Certificate and OEMSLP key available on The Official Windows 7 Repository)
    Now I wan to install Vista Ultimate on Partition D. I read on Vista OEM Activation How it Works that i need OEMSLP Key, OEM Certificate and OEM-brand BIOS ACPI_SLIC information to activate vista but the certificates on Vista OEMSLP Certificate & Bin Collection are for SLIC 2.0 whereas My BIOS have SLIC2.1...so what should i do to activate Vista ??

    Vista can use SLIC2.0 and 2.1. Just use a Vista OEM SLP key and matching certificate and you will be fine.

    My 1545 has SLIC 2.0... did your system come with 2.1 or did you modify it?
