Slic Toolkit Windows 7
I will start with basics of how a copy of windows gets automatically activated when installed on OEM (original equipment manufacturer) based PCs, traditionally when a copy of windows is installed you have insert your license key and activate by verifying it with Microsoft via internet or by getting a confirmation id over telephone. But with OEMs like Dell, Sony, Lenovo etc. a need was felt to get windows activated right upon installation without going through all the annoyance. With Windows XP a method called System-Locked Pre-installation (SLP) was devised. This method uses an area of BIOS to store some identification data, in SLP 1.0 the version included with XP, this was simply the name of the OEM. There are files on hard disk when windows is installed which were being matched with the value from BIOS for verification, if matched your copy gets activated. SLP 1.0 was cracked quite easily which demanded for a more complex system to be developed resulting in SLP 2.0 included with Windows Vista and SLP 2.1 shipped with Windows 7. Both methods works similarly with only a change in marker in Windows 7 based PCs. A SLP 2.1 involves checking the presence of a matching OEM-supplied key, an OEM-specific certificate and the most challenging part of the puzzle an OEM-specific ACPI_SLIC table (SLIC 2.1 table) before it can activate.

First of all Thankyou for the post,though I have some doubt , please clear it.1.Is this process is just to by pass phone or online activation?2 While installing windows I typed My COA sticker product key.Now It is showing your product key is invalid.1. Is this method legal. I mean if I follow this method will I get geniun windows 7 home premium. I have my OEM COA sticker on the back of laptop.Can I use that in the process.?Actually My hard disk got crashed and so I have to replace it, also I bought New RAM.If I replace hard disk and upgrade RAM ,windows will ask to activate it again.Now can I use this process to activate it, ? Will windows get successfully activated.?Also in future I want to upgrade my windows 7 to windows 10,if I do this process ,will I face any problem,? will my win 10 also remain geniun?Please help
yes you can definitely use this process.. the back key is oem key used with original windows disk provided by manufacturer.. this process basically does the same thing indirectly.. anyways you should be good to go
Thank you for quick replyI think now I understand why it is showing my product key invalid, I used SLIC ToolKit V3.2 and found that SLIC status is VALID (Green) but there is Certi Error (NO OEM Cert found).So I have no certificate.Now if I download certificate and do the above AWESOME trick , my windows will get Activated legally and geniunly and then I can upgrade to Windows 10 . Right?Am I thinking correctly Right? Please reply
In Virtual Box (4.2 or newer) it does work. You need to setup the ACPI SLIC table though, as explained in this thread: =2&t=43678&hilit=slic&sid=299dbbb465fb8fbfe717138bbf18801eWith the link above, I was able to activate Win7Pro of my DELL M3800 in a VM with Ubuntu 14.04 host.
Systems manufactured before 2012 were sold with a Windows 7 Code of Authenticity (COA). This contained the Edition of Windows 7 and a 25 Digit Product Key and was typically placed under the battery to prevent fading. This installation key works with Windows 10 Installation Media but will only activate with Phone Activation with Windows 7 Installation Media.if(typeof ez_ad_units != 'undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'dellwindowsreinstallationguide_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_0',131,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-dellwindowsreinstallationguide_com-medrectangle-3-0');

In order to avoid having to manually type an alpha-numeric 25 digit product key and calling Microsoft for Product Activation on every single computer they manufacture, they activate their devices using a different mechanism called OEM System Locked Preinstallation (OEM SLP).

Instead Windows 7 is activated from Factory using OEM System Locked Preinstallation. For Windows 7 OEM SLP three things are required:

Many people on forums are instructed to use key finders to find their OEM Product Key and instead will find the OEM SLP key and fail to activate using it. These keys will only activate using windows 7 OEM SLP, they do not activate using other activation methods.

Many threads in this community and none helped, I have searched around the web and found actually no solution, I was hoping I can get some help here, I have also checked Add slic 2.1 to Bootmgr (No grldr means less time to boot, not recommended). Add slic 2.1 to Bootloader (0.97 grldr customised by Zsmin for me) with option (Default,Alternative, Low Memory, Debug, Forceful).
I recently changed my laptops Hard Drive, when i installed windows 7 on the new Hard drive, i faced this error trying to activate it. OEM (Certificate & Key) install only where bios already (or modded) contains slic 2.1 2. Second, I know this subject is mentioned a lot in here but none helped me. First, sorry if my thread is not in the right location. 350c69d7ab
