    Hi All,

    I've searched the forums looking for the BIOS mod for my Asus P4P800 Deluxe motherboard. The closest thing I found was for the P4P800 non deluxe. The files are the same (actually its the latest BETA bios) and the dates are the same for the deluxe and non deluxe mobos. Should I use the non deluxe bios to flash? Just wondering before I brick my BIOS. :)

    Thanks

    Never look at the file size, date timestamp, or CRC to compare files. Comparing the MD5 and/or SHA1 hashes show they are really identical.

    If the original P4P800 and P4P800-Deluxe BIOS'es are the same, then why would the mod be different between the two? You can always do the mod yourself using AndyP's AMITool.

    Ok, I've tried AndyP's AMITool and I think I did something wrong. Looks like everything went well until after I put in the SLIC cert and key. I ran the tool and it told me that I had no SLIC table inserted.

    Here are the specs:

    Manufacturer: Asus
    Model: P4P-800 Deluxe
    BIOS Rev: 1021.006 Beta Bios
    BIOS Type: AMI
    BIOS Slic: Asus 2.1

    I used the beta BIOS and then used the AndyP tool to mod it. Hopefully I did that right cause the computer still boots! =) Installed Win7 Ultimate and then inserted the cert and key.

    I'll try the BIOS from what Serg linked to me but I have the BETA bios on the chip now. Can I flash 'down' to 1019? Thank you all!

    If your Mod worked then there is no need to try mine.
    I just posted it in case you had trouble with the mod you made.

    Well, I did follow the directions on how to mod the bios.

    1. took the tools and opened them up. Pointed to my bios file, added the asus text file and then modded it.
    2. upgraded the firmware
    3. installed Win7
    4. installed the certificate successfully and then then key
    5. When opening up the Slic toolkit, its telling me that I don't have a Slic table

    dunno.. <shrug>

    You left out adding the SLIC 2.1(ASUS.BIN) in the AMI TOOL.
    The .txt file is SLP for Win XP Activation.

    Just wanted to let you guys know everything worked out well.

    The computer is slow as molassas for some reason. Its a P4 Dual core cpu thats in there. Thought that would be fast enough but I guess not.

    Thank you all!

    Processor only means nothing!
    How much RAM do you have? How fast/big HD?
    What graphics card?

    I tested Win7 on this mobo & it was working nicely (for such old machine)

    I agree, I also own one of these, runs Win7 just fine P4 always was a capable processor just had heat issues and needs proper cooling, I think they still use similar cpus with smaller processes, just have changed the name from P4 to just pentium, could be wrong but aren't the T4400 processors refered to as a pentium dual core 2.2 Ghz? Of course with an AGP slot the graphics may hold up to future top of the line games, but Sappire made a Radeon 4650 so it is possible to run decent games
