I'm so happy! It really worked! Modded my Gigabyte P35-DS3R BIOS with a brand new Gigabyte SLIC 2.1 table using Busykid508's tutorial! Windows 7 Pro happily activated without a hitch! yaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!! Many, many thanks to everyone who's contributed so generously with their time and talents to this board!! Great job, guys!!!! One quick (I hope not too stupid) question: If I were to flash the BIOS to a newer version without the SLIC table, would Windows stay activated? In other words, is the successful activation a one-time thing? Or does the OS check the BIOS on every boot to remain activated? Thanks so much!! You guys are awesome!!!!
