    There should be a manufacturers label somewhere on the motherboard.
    It will either be silkscreened on the board or just a simple paper label.

    If your vista is activaed withouth any cracks, you can freely install SP1, but before you install check for the pre SP1 updates, and also check if you have some driver incompatibility, like Conexant HD Audio, Intel VGA for GM965, and some security software like Norton Internet Security e.t.c.

    my neighbor saw my cracked vista with the cracked bios and he wanna flash his bios BUT there is one little problem with him,

    he wanna be sure that microsoft will not play with he's cracked bios (if he will flash from original bios to cracked bios) and how hard is it to find it as a "fake slic"??

    p.s. he have a p4s800-d motherboard, it's can be cracked??

    If microsoft disables your bios SLIC with some update, than all legit OEMs shell be desabled also, and I doubt that will ever happen.. :)

    First, nothing has been "Cracked".
    A small OEM string has been inserted in the BIOS code....that's all.
    You can now use any RTM version of Vista, and use the OEM files which are untouched, and the proper OEM Key.
