    Zoostorm computers how are they activated?
    Do they have SLIC 2.1 in their Bios?

    Do they come with windows 7? If so yes they have slic 2.1

    All computermanufactures activates their computer offline using SLIC 2.1 (windows 7)

    Thanks for the reply. I was wondering about small manufacturers such as Zoostorm - It means they have to source motherboards with Slic 2.1 bios or change the bios individually a lot of work it leaves one wondering about the economics!

    That is not true just because they come with windows 7 doesn't mean they are OEM SLP machines, They could be using OEM system builder licences.

    Im assuming that zoostorm's computes comes with slic and are oemslp activated but yes they can also be using non slp keys.

    I thought the point of OEM-SLP activation was to ship the computer already activated without the OEM having to activate on-line -the 30 day "grace" period would probably expire before sale.

    To plug each one into a internet connection is a lot of hassle compared to simply "mass" imaging a drive.
