    I was looking at the manual the ASUS P7H57D-V EVO mobo and noticed that it has a [American Megatrends/AMI] BIOS that is 8MB when unpacked (compared to 2MB or less) I've previously seen on all ASUS boards.

    Do yo have any idea why it's much larger? And, most importantly, can SLIC 2.1 be added to it?

    Here is the link to the BIOS: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1156/P7H57D-V_EVO/P7H57D-V-EVO-ASUS-0503.zip

    it can be, amitool seems to work. However no idea if properly since i dont have board :) and about its size, i seriously have no idea why they need that much because quick look at this bios shows ~6.3MB of free space, so this means they could easy fit it in to 2MB.

    Thanks, I think I'll wait until someone with the board confirms that SLIC works.

    You can find it here : megaupload.com/?d=VC1MJR7L
    if the link is broken here (mine) : f*p://82.239.144.183/program/ASUS/ASUS%20-OEM-SLIC/Asus-Bios-Slp-Slic/Slic-2.1/
    choose the line N° 2, not verified by me, you have the original Bios in it.
    Tell forum if it is OK.

    Maybe they're planning to bring out an update to efi for you board? I think efi takes up more space than a bios.
