RE: SLIC 2.1 for Sony Vaio VGN-SZ1XP
Here you go , i used Sony 2.1 SLIC + Certificate Included:-

1. Copy and paste ******.XRM-MS certificate file into C-Drive.

2. After pasting this file into C-Drive, go to START - ALL PROGRAMS - ACCESSORIES - COMMAND PROMPT. Right click on Command Prompt and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.

3. When Command Prompt opens, type at the prompt: slmgr.vbs -ilc c:\********.xrm-ms and hit the Enter Button. Wait for the Script Host to answer you with a message that the license was installed successfully....this could take a few minutes and so be patient.

4. After receiving the message that the license was installed successfully, type at the command prompt:

slmgr.vbs -ipk *****-*****-*****-*****-***** (Replace with any OEM SLP Product Key for your installed version of Windows 7 , they are not hard to find).Be Patient and wait for the message to say that the Product Key was sucessfully installed. After it says successfully installed, reboot the computer.

5. When you are back at your desktop, go to START - COMPUTER - right click on Computer and choose PROPERTIES and see if it is activated with an OEM product ID.

Hi Admin thanks for the quick response, really appreciated. I have just tried to run the flashbios and get the following error:

Bios update failed. Image file is either not valid or damaged
Bios image verification failed
Error code -149

Not sure what to try now, so any further help greatly appreciated.

phlash16.exe R0083N0.WPH

Phoenix Phlash16 error
file open failed on R0083N0
Press any key to exit.

Not sure wot else to try now, so grateful for more suggestions.
