    this Acer Aspire Desktop AM1100 with R01-A3 Bios (Award) refuses to update Slic when flashing. No Slic found when I use the Slic Dump tool v2.1 or Everest. The Acer computer came with Vista and should have at least Slic 2.0 in the Bios but that seems to be lost now too.


    Original Bios Files here that
    Acer Taiwan has posted for the Aspire AM1100
    Bios R01-A3 (the desktop came with that Bios as well and no other available)

    All of these Moded Bios I get Slic Dump Error When I use the Slic Dump Tool v2.1

    I'm flashing under Dos and I do rename the modded bios first so it does matches the name of the .bat file.

    I'm just typing Aflash.bat

    and this is what the Aflash.bat has inside:

    AWDFLASH 721A1P16.BIN /PY/SN/WB

    for some reason the slic table does not get updated or is even found.

    any other mod methods out there. I thought Acer (Award) was pretty easy to mod?

    Looks like I'm running out of options here. :(

    thanks for looking into this.
