    This is a very old issue on GA boards existed way back with Vista see other threads about resolution.

    First thing anyone with a lenovo key should do is reconfigure your windows update. We all know m$ will try anything to catch the lenovo key and RFM your pc.

    When i used the lenovo key i just turned my updates off alltogether.

    Those boards you need to try to mod it with ISA, i did it for one user and he confirmed it worked perfect.

    So I did. But now Windows 7 is in "trial mode". I think because of missing SLIC.

    I used AwardTool 1.18, original bios and the SLIC from the SLIC21 folder and the SLP from SLP folder and of course ISA and then GO -> SLIC performed successfully.
    Updated the selfmade bios. -> trial mode. Neither Everest nor RW Read & Write show something about SLIC.
    Slic Dump says "SLIC Table Not Find"

    Do I have to change something in the AwardTool?
    When I open the newly created file with AwardTool it is saying the bios is having a SLIC 2.1 table added with ISA method.

    Yes. Same situation.

    AwardTool recognizes the new bios as SLIC with ISA ,Slic Dump says "SLIC Table Not Find". The bios before was made with SSV3 (download from this board) and the SLIC table was found but produces the error for which reason I created this thread.
