he wants slic because:

A new way to crack or bypass Windows Vista activation is by installing OEM version of Vista on your PC. However, Windows Vista OEM activation needs a new table named SLIC in ACPI module of computer BIOS, and new values in RSTD table, as part of SLP 2.0 (System-Locked Preinstallation). If your motherboard or BIOS ACPI module does not contains the SLIC table, you will need to modify or patch the BIOS to add in the table , plus set a correct OEM ID and OEM Table ID that match the corresponding OEM digital certificate. After modification, you can install Windows Vista with OEM product key and has Windows Vista activated instantly without the need to activate online, as if your Vista system is OEM version that comes preinstalled in branded computer such as HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer and etc.

Hi Guys,

I have a Lenovo 3000 Y 500 notebook with me and when it has its Bios password Locked. This is the second time it is happening. When it boots it asks for the Bios password. I have not set any passwords before and now also. What happened last time when this happened i went to the Lenovo repair centre and they informed me that motherboard has to be changed. But i refused and i came back and found another lenovo showroom later in another city and i just checked out. He upgraded the bios ( i dont know how - he just told me ) and it got fixed. Now again this issue has happened and when i went to the same person i knew he had quit and now the current ppl there are saying that theire is no other option that replacing the mother board. Also i did not have my previos bill with me too. Now please tell me how can i upgrade my Bios. Please let me know if you need more information.
