    Hi All,

    Anyone tried modding Acer 5920G to Slic 2.1? I am new here and wish to know if any users who had modded their Acer 5920G and can share their bios with me.

    Thanks!

    Yes I think so, but you only need the HP cert and not the HP oem key. Use the leaked Lenovo key instead.

    Do you think with this modded bios can I still retain my Vista OEM activation?

    My guess is not 'cause with a modded bios you change the bios slic to 2.1. The only cert which is compatible to SLIC 2.0 and 2.1 is HP. So if you don't own a HP laptop you loose Vista activation. But you could ( FOR VISTA ) install the proper hp oem key add the HP cert. That shoud give you a legit Vista OEM back.

    I am in need of some experts advise.

    I am using Acer Aspire 5920G with SLIC 2.0 bios. I was given the link to the modded bios, thanks to Viper_Rus. It pointed to the file as "ZD13813_HP21.wph". I have a few questions which I hope someone can assist to answer.

    1) This file "ZD13813_HP21.wph" requires HP cert. Where can I get this HP cert for SLIC 2.1?

    2) Has anyone who using Acer Aspire 5920G modded this bios? Is it good to go?

    3) Can this modded bios also keep my existing vista activated? I am using Acer OEM original bios as of now, v1.3813

    4) This modded bios, can it flash using SWinFlash (Windows flash utility from Phoenix) ?

    Appreciate :)

    Thanks man! You are wonderful!.

    Btw, do you think its a good idea to mod Acer 5920G to this modded bios with HP SLIC 2.1? or wait for Acer SLIC 2.1? Will you try this?

    I am very scared of trying it as I have never done this (Modding) b4.

    I modded my BIOS ( Aspire 8920G ) with HP 2.1, installed Lenovo Master OEM Key and added HP cert 2.0 ( you can find HP cert here ) and had no problems so far!

    btw.. if you wait for ACER Slic 2.1 cert you loose Vista activation according to this because Acer SLIC 2.1 is not compatible with 2.0

    I have extended warranty so if something happens to the lappy it will look odd if the OEM license will be from another brand.

    For now i'm using Vista, and not in a hurry to upgrade to WIN 7.

    Thanks again!

    Now I have more confident with what u say. I am gonna flash this bios later.

    After flashing to the modded bios, how I go about activating Windows 7 offline? Currently I am using Hazar's 7lo*der.

    Cheers :)
