    I have a GA-P35 DS4 board. Used super static 3 to add HP SLIC to the BIOS.

    Till BIOS Version F8 the method worked. But now I modded F11, find out it hangs after post(verify DPMI etc.).
    So I use the official F11. After booting, I use Everest to check the ACPI table. The SLIC is still in it. And use ACPI Scope, the same. This is under XP.

    Ok, I boot into my Vista, still the same, Vista stay activated.

    I flash back my BIOS to older F8(offical), still there is a SLIC table in it.

    Tried clear DMPI data after flashing, no change. I haven't tried clearing CMOS yet, casue too lazy to reconfigure. I think the SLIC shouldn't stay in the CMOS area...

    How can this happen?
    :confused:

    Hi,

    Perhaps you've installed an activation crack such as Paradox or Vista loader and didn't uninstalled it properly.
    Try to install a fresh copy of Vista or if you don't want to format, do it on another HDD.

    Bye,

    (OP)
    I never installed a software mod nor a crack on that pc. ;)

    One reason now I can think about is that some data in the shadow bios was used rather that the actual bios.
