ACPI Table Extraction / SeaBIOS SLIC Integration

If your computer is installed with Windows 7/8 by default but you'd prefer to run Linux as your desktop but on ocassion run a single Windows Virtual Machine under KVM using the activiation credentials within your computers BIOS then SeaSLIC can help you achieve this.
