If you have read the previous articles that instruct you how to modify your BIOS to add in the required SLIC table in ACPI module in order to achieve OEM instant activation for Windows Vista without the need to activate online against Microsoft’s server, you should know that the alteration process is tedious, dangerous and not for novice. However, some good Samaritan hackers have modified the BIOS for many motherboards (mobos) from different motherboards brands and manufacturers to support SLP 2.0, and then release the BIOSes online for public free download. Here’s some of the collection of the modified BIOSes.

Warning: Alteration to BIOS may invalidate warranty, cause computer to unable to boot up or other irrecoverable effect. Do it at your own risk.

There’s plenty of ways to mod a BIOS to support OEM. All OEM BIOS below is modified to include SLIC table and Windows Marker that match Asus OEM ID and OEM Table ID unless specified otherwise.

NOTE: This list no longer been updated as of early April. For latest list of working Vista mod BIOS or request for mod BIOS, visit this forum thread, or post comments below.

Abbreviations:

Success: Successful instant activation of Windows Vista
Reinstall: May need to reinstall Windows XP or Windows Vista
OEM ID: The BIOS is added/replaced with SLIC table with this OEM identity (default to Asus). You need to use corresponding OEM certificate if you’re not installing with OEM image.
Dynamic SLIC: BIOS mod for Vista with dynamic SLIC table in memory

Several important notes:

  1. If you’re using WinFlash to flash the BIOS into computer’s ROM, unselect “DMI Area” option so that Windows XP activation will not be affected.
  2. For Gigabyte motherboard overclockers, if you face problem and unable to boot up computer with overclock settings, try to go to BIOS -> Power Management Setup and turn off HPET Power Saving option.
  3. You can install any version or edition of Windows Vista, be it RTM, MSDN, retail or OEM releases. The only different between them is that the Microsoft signed OEM digital certificate is built-in into OEM release, thus Windows Vista will be automatically activated once install with correct OEM product key that match with the Windows Marker in SLIC and RSDT tables in BIOS’s ACPI.
  4. For RTM, MSDN, retail and any other non-OEM releases of Windows Vista edition, you need to install the Microsoft signed OEM cert for respective OEM ID patched into BIOS. For most of the above BIOS, it will be ASUS and Lenovo.
  5. If Windows Vista has already installed, change the product key to OEM product key should works for instant activation.
  6. For some of the motherboard, especially ASUS, if you face the problem that the CMOS configuration cannot be saved after flashed the mod BIOS, re-flash the original BIOS from manufacturer from within Windows system.
  7. It’s reported that some BIOS, depending on method used to mod it, may not work on system with different physical memory RAM size.
