    No, Windows 7 needs SLIC 2.1 to activate. SLIC 2.0 won't work with 7. However, SLIC 2.1 is backwards compatible with 2.0

    This loader is only some clicks and reboot, less than a minute for doing that, it is worth try before flashing.
    Flash new BIOS is never safe, since the BIOS is modified it is also less safe.

    vendorDell Inc.
    version2.5.3
    date11/22/2007

    how do i know if the bios os phoenix or anything else cuz im pretty sure its phoenix one, i have dell dimension 9200
    and where do i get ther .dos files from? the one on dell website is an exe file that straight up installs bios onto your system
