    I purchase a new mother board from retail store ASUS P5KPL AM/PS .
    After purchase the bord i see the bios version which is older than current ver..
    so i go to officeal asus web site to download new version bios for my board.
    after download i update my bios. after update the bios i use SLIC Dump ToolKit to see SLIC Version.
    i sock , ihave already SLIC 2.0... that means i can install vista ..with out any crack..

    my pc is not branded pc of asus..

    so why asus include slic 2.0 in bios ?

    That depends, are you 100% sure it is a complete SLIC, and not filled with just nulls? with other words are the public key and marker complete?
    Dump the slic, and test it on the SLIC verification url in my signature ;)

    Another option is ASUS uses that particular board in one of there own machines, and because of that decided to include the SLIC
    (a SLIC alone won't activate Vista, eg: need Certificate and keys as well, so the novice user knows nothing...unless they visit here ;) )
