I just tried wow7 on win7. It seems to work fine. RW shows the slic 2.1 from hp. I have a gateway notebook with phoenix bios. It has slic 2.0 and allowed me to activate vista ultimate. There is a small trick to install it. Win7 creates a special partition for boot files. So you must go to computer management and assign a drive letter to it. Then just copy the files, edit install.bat to put the right drive letter and run it. I have a couple of questions about wow7: 1. It's not an emulator, it's a patch. But what does it patch? I believe it is not the bios itself, so is it like a copy of the bios in ram? 2. After grub and the patch run, does windows completely take over the machine or is there some code from grub or the patch still running? 3. How do I change the slic inside the image? Just hexedit the image itself? I noticed that there seems to be 2 copies of the slic in the image when I hexedit it.
