    Since installing Win7Loader release 5 (with great success - TY Hazar for option #2!) I have discovered my bios is slic 2.1 enabled. (Dell Inspiron 531 - BIOS ver 10.1.13).


    Would there be anything to gain if I could uninstall Hazar's loader (option 2) and use a cert and key instead (option 1) ?? I have noticed a slight delay in by normal boot time ..no biggie..but without the grub mbr would that delay go away.

    Thank you.

    If you have a 2.1 BIOS it's generally best to uninstall a loader and install the corrrect cert ;)

    If you had installed the Loader in the first place, you will find that you have Slic 2.1 which is from the loader.
    You need to uninstall the loader and check whether it have slic 2.1

    2. When promtped, press any key to boot from the DVD.

    3. Choose your language and press Next

    i faced a similar issue. it shows 2.1 but that is just a virtualisation. its not true in most cases. so uninstall it and then check.

    OK Got it...that is I understand what I was seeing with R/W Everything is what the loader placed there. DUH! I feel so D U M B. OK that feeling has past! TYVM to tempaccout, jet29 and KotaZor for the 'eye opener'. I must say this is all so very intriguing and interesting. Thanks again guys....
