Not a chance - the BIOS is dated over a year before the release of Win 8.

The computer did not come with Windows 8 but I did attempt an upgrade to Win 8 Pro. The disk ran normally and downloaded Win 8 but during reboot reverted to Win 7 and, after that, further attempts to run the disk would only show the UDF system error message. Is it possible that this could corrupt the SLIC table?

It's possible, but unlikely, that it damaged the BIOS. It's more likely that some part of the OS got damaged and that's what is causing the misread.
However, the important fact is that you have no proof currently that you have any Windows license at all

I am positive that the installed OS was genuine and have only had this activation issue since trying to update to Win 8 and then cleaning up and updating after the reversion to Win 7.

Please run the WATFix tool I suggested and post a new MGADiag report.

Thanks. I will back up data to an external drive and then run the WATFix.

Hi NoelDP, does the WATFix tool then need be followed by the Windows Loader by Daz or can it be used as standalone?

WATFix did not appear to do anything except load a browser hijacker, a lot of unwanted programs, viruses and malicious software! :-( :-( :-( I am in the process of cleaning up before I send an MGA Diag. I may have to revert to a restore point if I cannot get rid of the crap. I am now using another laptop to post this message.
