    SLIC 2.1 is a bios used to used to activate windows 7. Its configuration
    vary according to Hardware configuration. This is most supported bios on
    Lenevo and HP computer.

    There are now three different version of SLP, namely SLP 1.0 for Windows XP
    and Windows Server 2008, SLP 2.0 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008,
    and SLP 2.1, which supports Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and has

    the BIOS which is used to activate the windows 7 and its configurations is known as SLIC 2.1, without this your version of windows 7 will not be activated and it will again and again remember you to activate your version of windows 7 so SLIC 2.1 is a essential software.

    Hello,

    System-Locked Pre-installation (SLP) is the mechanism used by big royalty OEM computer manufacturers to factory activate pre-installed Windows operating system on branded desktop PC, laptop, notebook, netbook and nettop computer so that activation process of Windows is done transparently and automatically once end-user first starts the computer. The offline OEM-style pre-activation that bypass Windows Product Activatin (WPA) is implemented to reduce the chance of annoying mass PC buyers from having to deal with activation after buying the computer.

    yes it is very important to activate windows 7 to make geniune.

    Thank u
