    Has anyone Modded the BIOS on their Acer Revo 3610?

    This is the Machine:
    h**p://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/2009/acer/aspire/AspireR3610/AspireR3610sp2.shtml

    The version I purchased came with a version of Linux, but they did have ones with Windows 7 bundled.

    I have never modded a BIOS before so was hoping this has already been done :D

    Thanks in Advance :)

    There is/was a tread somewhere on the forum, from a couple of years back covering Vista on the Revo 3600.
    The basic conclution was to use the Acer BIOS for Vista.
    Which was latter moded for Windows 7.

    If theres a Revo 3610 with Windows 7, I'd say the Windows BIOS would work just as well on the Linuix Revos. :cool:

    Ok so I have the latest BIOS downloaded (the one not designed for linux)

    What tools guide should I use?

    I have flashed updated BIOS files but never modded myself.

    I take it because I am on Windows 7 I need slic 2.1?

    No tools.
    Just use the P01.A4 Windows BIOS.

    You need the Acer 2.1 cert.

    Thank You for your help so far BUT I think I am missing something big.

    Flashed and Setup new BIOS (no problems at all)

    What is next in the process?

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate Installed (fresh install) currently running in trial period.

    Came across this thread:
    h**p://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/10370-Windows-7-OEM-SLP-Key-Collection

    Is it something to do with the next step?

    I actually hate myself right now for asking so many questions :(
