    I have recently modded my Award Bios of my motherboard Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L to Dell SLIC 2.1. I would like to know which Company's SLIC would eventually support almost all past, present, to the future Windows OEM operating systems? (SLIC which is Best, Greatest, and valid for all OEM Windows especially recent Server operating system and their various editions). :rolleyes:The one SLIC which is easiest to unlock latest versions of Windows, Windows editions such as Enterprise, Professional, Premium, Business, Server 2008, Server 2003, etc. Please respond with the best answer and I would like to try out that Company's SLIC. Thanks. :)

    With warm regards,
    Tushar.

    Dell or HP would be your best bet. However putting just a Dell SLIC/SLP or just an HP SLIC doesn't guarantee that you will be able to activate everything. Certain Dell SLICs are different for Servers than Desktops too.

    So if you really want to be able to activate everything you are better getting MAK keys for Windows 6 versions and 640-pid based Windows 5 versions. That is what I do. I have enterprise level Windows 5.x kernel based ISOs, and a repository of OEM and MAK keys for Windows 6.x versions.

    There were no ACME tools left, though, they've all been used up by the roadrunner.

    RE: MAK Keys

    I just learnt something new: MAK keys. I would like to try out these. I don't have any because I never knew about this as I am new to all these. Can you provide me some MAK keys for Vista (SP2), Server 2008 (R1 and R2), and possibly Windows 7? Probably there might be any webpage link you can provide where I can find the desired MAK keys. :)

    Thanks,
    Tushar.

    MAK keys are rare and not leaked frequently

    To be put short, none are better than others. They are all the same, in essence. They all do the same thing. Activate Windows 7 (2.1), Vista (2.0), XP (1.0). Version 2.1 SLICs are backwards compatible to Windows Vista HOWEVER, some need new certs (i.e. Acer.XRM-MS) first.

    So your question should be, which SLICs are currently usable, not which is best. :D :D

    RE: Tell me which SLIC is most supportive of all.

    I have less experience about this. Can you tell which Company's SLIC mod will support almost all* or the most editions of Windows Vista, Server 2008 (R1 and R2), and Seven?

    SLIC tables do not control which operating systems it works for.

    For example:

    A SLIC 2.1 (if activation method is support by OS) will activate any version of Windows Vista and Windows 7. You need the OEM_SLP keys which are used with SLICs and Certs. OEM_SLP Keys are not however, locked to one manufacturer. You can use a Dell cert, Dell 2.1 Slic, and activate Any edition of Vista (providing you have an OEM_SLP Key for each edition) or any edition of Windows 7 (again, providing you have the OEM_SLP keys for each edition).

    The Dell M09 2.1 SLIC will activate any edition of Windows Vista that supports OEM_SLP Activation. this is the same for Windows 7.

    As for Server 2008 (R1 and R2) I'm not sure they support OEM activation

    OEM versions are hot property similar to the ones for Vista/7, only not leaked so easily as not every Tom/Dick/Harry has access to servers, hence the OEM keys are hard to get

    There are 4 OEM keys (that I know of) available for 2008 Server Standard R1 that work with any SLIC/Certificate pair.

    RE:

    Still there is no survival so easily without SLIC modding and OEM SLP Keys. I guess now Windows Seven and Server 2008 R1-R2 are important than other past windows versions. SLIC Bios emulator would stand tough if it becomes universal to support all editions of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2: This needs to be considered before releasing such SLIC Bios emulators and loaders.

    Thanks,
    Tushar.
