    My question:

    I have a modified bios installed on my PC (Windows 7 64 ultimate).
    A new version has been released by the m/b manufacturer which addresses a few bad issues. I'm going to use a modified version of the new bios.
    Am i going to update as usual ?
    Do i have to deactivate Windows, upgrade the bios and reactivate ?
    Any useful hints ?

    If you use exactly the same SLIC marker then just update the bios and everything should be ok. If there is a new SLIC marker in the new bios then you have to re-activate (import matching new cert). Deactivation is not needed. If anything is wrong, Windows will deactivate itself.
