    Not sure if this is where i should post. I want to install windows 7 beta as my main OS. So i have read the forums, i noticed a SLIC 2.1 bios has been uploaded for Samsung NC10 which i have just installed to my laptop which currently has WinXP. Now the bios is the right one does that mean all i have to do is install windows 7 and not have to worry about activation etc or do i need to anything more? Really confused about all these new anti piracy techniques microsoft keep making :/

    Windows 7 Beta? Seriously? Install the RTM not the beta lol. You have to flash your BIOS in order to do a offline OEM activation. I do suggest you read up as much as you can so you have a good idea how to proceed with flashing and activation.

    You wrote Win7 BETA?! why not downloading and installing Win7 RTM? Ok as you mentionedn you need a working bios mod which supports SLIC 2.1. ( Check out the sticky thread.... ) After installing Win7 you must add the oem cert and a genuine SLP key from an oem brand.

    ps. use search button OR go the the Official Windows 7 Repository ( link )

    Install without a key, make sure to remove check mark from Activate Online box then as stated above- After installing Win7 you must add the oem cert and a genuine SLP key from an oem brand. Not that hard to find. follow link- you already did the sometimes risky hard part of flashing ur bios :)

    It was meant as a joke but recently the download of Win7 RC has been disabled (though you still can request keys).

    Seriously man if you do a BIOS mod for pete's sake DON'T use a lo*der to help you finish the activation. Meaning don't be lazy and not type in the k*y and cert manually.
