    I can't seem to find any information on adding SLP 1.0 (Windows XP) to bios440.rom. i have successfully add 2.1 using Phoenix Tool. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    As far I know, Andyp's tool has an option to add SLP string. And if u r using Intel Processor, then there is a chance that the GENUINE oembios set will pre-activate ur Windows XP ;)

    NOT for Phoenix BIOS (Award/Ami = Yes), this one needs to be hand modded with Allow user to modify other modules

    But yes, using plain original unmodded BIOS on Intel processor, GENUINE will activate XP and Server 2003 will activate with Dell oembios* set - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/554468

    So there is really no need to have SLP mod at all
