    It looks good so far. To see what's wrong I need a dump of the SLIC table or a AcpiScope report. Maybe the SLIC is incomplete.

    I can make a mod. Do you want to try?

    As I read chances with Phoenix Bioses are high to brick my notebock...
    or was this in the past?

    Statistically to flash Phoenix bios there is a bit higher risk to get a bricked board than other bioses.
    At notebooks it's a problem, because to exchange the bios chip is often not possible, so you have to send it to repair in case of a unrecoverable bios.

    In fact I'm not able to say that the mod will flash 100%. This nobody can say.
