    Hi,

    Really need some urgent help here. I flashed my bios (ECS Geforce7050M v1.0A) from NoJuan with Dell slic 2.1. I was able to activate Win 7 Ultimate (yes I know the procedure, run CMD w/ Admin, load certificate, load serial, and do -ato). Same procedure with Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, just a different serial used (from the forum)... but R2 just refused to activate.

    Any help is highly appreciated!!

    urgent? if it's that urgent you should buy a license, you are eligible for support from Microsoft if you own a license ;)

    Anyway, without additional information it is (practically) not possible to give a valid answer... 99% errors are user related, are you sure you have done everything right?

    @FreeStyler, thanks for replying. Yes, I did everything correctly, otherwise I wouldn't be able to activate Win7. R2 isn't any different, just a different pkey.

    Update: 2008 R2 activated now! I just requested bios mod with SSV3 (it was previously modded w/ SSV2). I guess SSV3 did the trick. Thanks again NoJuan999
