I have purchased my laptop in 2011. I have some SLIC ACPI table but IIRC FreeDOS was pre‐installed.

I have done hexdump on it. Here is output:

0000000 4c53 4349 0024 0000 ac01 4553 4343 4453
0000010 484c 3334 5453 5241 0000 0604 4c20 5054
0000020 0000 0000                              

Is it valid SLIC? If yes, which version? Will Windows activate with it?

  • Why do you believe your machine even has a Windows stored in the ACPI table? If it came with FreeDOS, it very likely, did not come with a Windows license. We can’t tell anything from the hex dump. – Ramhound Aug 31 '19 at 17:39

    Will Windows activate with it? We can't answer that. Only Microsoft can tell you that. – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 31 '19 at 20:23
  • @TwistyImpersonator, it could be used on VM. – user1083216 Aug 31 '19 at 20:32
  • Huh? What's that have to do with whether we can answer that question? – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 31 '19 at 21:44

You have incomplete SLIC ACPI table with no version. It only includes vendor name which is Samsung.

This table will only prevent KMS activation of some Windows versions. To activate Windows using OEM:SLP key, you should have correct version of complete SLIC table and matching certificate. Samsung SLIC tables are only available for Windows Vista (2.0) and 7 (2.1) which are deprecated operating systems.
