    I have a Fujitsu Celsius r670-2 workstation that has latest bios and I need SLIC 2.3 added for Windows Server 2012 R2 OEM SLP.

    I dumped the bios using Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit but the phoenixtools are not able to open the file - error is 'Invalid header at 7401B'.

    Ok, instead I remove the bios chip and make a complete dump - still error is 'Invalid header at 7401B'.

    Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit and eprom programmer dump is not identical, I have however verified the eprom dump.


    Are you up for the challenge to do a manual mod ? if it fails I can reprogram chip - no worries.

    -Manufacturer:Fujitsu
    -Motherboard Model: D2618
    -Bios revision:6.00 R1.22.2618.C1 (6.00.1.22)
    -Bios Type: Phoenix BIOS
    -Bios dump using Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit :Dropbox link
    -Bios dump using eprom programmer: Dropbox link

    Have you thought about using Daz's loader
    I've been using it here on the original WS2012 Datacenter for the past 4 years,
    just checked, installed it Jan 29,2013
    works so good I never upgraded.

    I hate messing with the bios

    Yes I have, perhaps I will have to now hehe - did you apply all updates to 2012 ?

    I'm curious so I guess it's just me wanting to know how Fujitsu built their bios - I see several post from users having Fujitsu computers and since no one have figured out Fujitsu's secret I thought I'd give it a go.

    Yes I know how it is "in the interest of science".
    My own experience with modded bioses related to a hard drive size limitation
    for which I installed a really kludgy bios which I had the devil's own time
    getting rid of.
    Ultimately solved the size issue by means of a primary partition smaller than the limit
    Windows could after loading see the whole thing

    Haven't updated 2012 for a year,
