    I've just created a slic 2.1 bios for aspire 5535 with Phoenix Tools 1.42 which reports success and verifies the file against the cert. After flashing the machine Slic Toolkit 3.2 finds a version 2.0 slic in the bios (which was there before modding). Can anyone help me with this please.

    I did read somewhere (but of course I can't find it now) that some acer bioses have 2 slic tables and an upgrade from vista to win 7 requires some sort of software mod to fool the bios into thinking win 7 was originally installed on the machine, can anybody throw any light on this.

    I'm not requesting a bios mod I'm asking for advice as to why this is happening.
