    Have anyone try to insert SLI on DSDT options using AMITool (1.62) into any AMI BIOS? I tried to do so onto BIOStar A780L3G 78LBP926.BSS BIOS, but end up in error :aglerks:whether I chose "DSDT only" option or not. BIOS link: (remove [...]) [www].biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=479#

    The error in SLIC.LOG:
    ...
    AMIBIOS string found at F831
    SSV3 method
    Failed to generate new DSDT table
    Module 1B written 411650 bytes
    ...

    I compared the resulting BIOS, there are some differences, but by looking via MMTool, all the ID, Name, RomLoc, Source size, Size in Rom, %%, RunLoc are all the same.

    This is the entry in DSDT_NEW.DSL
    Scope (\_SB.PCI0)
    {
    Name (SLIC, Buffer (0x9E)
    {
    "987134512781Genuine NVIDIA Certified SLI Ready Motherboard for ASUS RAMPAGE II EXT 3287-Copyright 2008 NVIDIA Corporation All Rights Reserved-765289891023(R)"
    })
    Device (WMI1)
    {
    Name (_HID, "pnp0c14")
    Name (_UID, "MXM2")
    Name (_WDG, Buffer (0x14)
    {
    /* 0000 */ 0x3C, 0x5C, 0xCB, 0xF6, 0xAE, 0x9C, 0xBD, 0x4E,
    /* 0008 */ 0xB5, 0x77, 0x93, 0x1E, 0xA3, 0x2A, 0x2C, 0xC0,
    /* 0010 */ 0x4D, 0x58, 0x01, 0x02
    })
    Method (WMMX, 3, NotSerialized)
    {
    CreateDWordField (Arg2, 0x00, FUNC)
    If (LEqual (FUNC, 0x41494C53))
    {
    Return (\_SB.PCI0.SLIC)
    }

    Return (0x00)
    }
    }
    }

    Any help is much appreciated.
