    I had installed Vista on my ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 home built with an SLIC BIOS activation using:
    SLIC Tool v1.3.1.0
    ASUS BIOS rom file
    Asus SLIC BIN file
    ASUS SLP file
    ASUS.XRM-MS file

    The Vista activation was good and held up to updates and SP1 installation.
    I have since uninstalled Vista.
    I didn't like it well enough to keep it.
    Now I'd like to give Win7 a try.
    Will this present BIOS configuration work for the activation of Windows 7 also, or do I need to start over again to be able to do an OEM activation?

    Was the Slic bin file V2.0 or V2.1?
    I suspect it is V2.0 and you need V2.1 to activate Win 7.
    You can test the slic version with this tool - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/6925

    You're right. It was the ASUS.BIN 2.0 file.
    it came in a folder named SLIC20.

    I've been looking around the forums and cannot locate the ASUS.BIN SLIC2.1 file.
    It's awfully confusing trying to figure out where to find it.

    Where can I find the ASUS.BIN SLIC21 file?

    I have the 2.1 bin files for: Dell, HP, Lenovo & MSI.
    I'd like to keep it 100% ASUS if possible.
    Thx for the help so far and any more that I can get.

    Where can I learn about SLIC? I see there are several versions, I think there's 2.1, 2.0, 1.1? I wonder what the differences are.

    Read this to start - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5619

    It about Vista OEM-SLP activation which requires Slic v2.0
    Win 7 requires Slic v2.1 (note also works with Vista).
    SLP 1.0 was an early form of activation for XP.

    Hope this is of some help.

    I looked right at it and didn't see it while trying to find it on my own.
    Thx, I now have it.
    Now, to d/l Win7 64bit and give it a try to see if it's as good as many are saying it is, or if it's another Vista fog bank.

    Thx again for the help.
