    Ok here's the deal ....

    I'm currently running vista 32bit and my bios is slicced for asus and so is my copy of vista.

    What should I mod my bios with now so that later down the road I can upgrade to windows 7 but still currently keep using my vista ?

    First wait for ASus slic 2.1 become availabe.

    modde it then activate win 7 with new cert / key
    and activate vista as usual (perhap you may need new cert/key for vista ?)

    Alternatively modded your bios to hp / dell / lenovo slic
    and activate using the leak key for win7

    activate your vista with the correct slic/cert/key version

    i.e if you modded it with hp slic 2.1 you need to activate vista
    using hp oem cert/key.

    Ok so what your saying is I can make up a new modded bios with a dell slic/slp and flash my pc with it and then boot into vista and re-install the xms cert file without any issues and still down the road install win7 ?

    If you change your slic to 2.1 using dell or hp, you will only need to update the certificate in Vista from ASUS, to Dell or HP for it to stay activated, providing the SLIC 2.1 you upgrade to is 2.0 Cert compatable. Some manufacturers are releasing new SLIC and Certs.

    Dell and HP both currently support using 2.0 Cert for Vista and 7. I do not know about others.

    Now can I include the cert onto the dvd including the product key like done with making a custom vista cd before or has it changed ?

    Installing cert is the same, but PID.TXT no longer works. I've been using the DISM method to install the key into the wim file (see signature link). You can also use a autounattend file.

    Also, look here. This may be helpful.
