    Hi guys,
    I have just checked my XPS 420 and the SLIC version seems to be 2.0.
    Now, two little question:
    1- Is it worth it that I make a request for a mod BIOS or are Dell BIOS "unmodeable". Just want to know if it's possible to put it to SLIC 2.1 before I make a request.
    2- Just out of curiosity... If I have SLIC 2.0 and I was to buy windows 7 tomorrow (I know it is not out in store, but theoretically), does that mean that I wouldn't ben able to even activate a legit key?!?!

    Thanks in advance guys!

    I don't think people are having much success getting 2.1 slic into the bios of most Dell computers.

    This thread has some useful info:

    The XPS 420 has a Phoenix Bios BTW.

    I also am looking for a Bios solution for an XPS 420, so I'll update if I find anything.
