    Hello everybody. Sony released some Win 7 drivers for my notebook and between those drivers a new BIOS update. I was wondering if this new BIOS has SLIC 2.1. Could someone please tell me (I don't know how to do it) if this BIOS has a SLIC 2.1 table?. I don't want to flash my BIOS unless this BIOS has SLIC 2.1.

    This is the BIOS file: http://download.sony.com/US/pc/AIBSYS-00208387-1070.EXE

    Thanks.

    I believe your laptop is a vaio NS. From the look of your model, a bios update with slic 2.1 is 0-10% chance from my understanding with sony models. yet to be sure post your request here (look for str8 he modded mine or someone) http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7033. ask someone to see if the update bios has slic 2.1. also follow the format in requesting is in post 1.

    :)

    Thanks man, I'll wait a bit more to see if somebody knows the answer. If nobody answers I'll then post where you recommend me. I don't want to create double posts.

    Install the update and see for yourself...

    I'd recommend installing the updated bios provided by Sony and then following the instructions in this post to see what version SLIC is included. You can always re-flash with a modded bios if it turns out that it doesn't include 2.1...

    Yes that's right LOL....a mod should be possible by simply replacing the SLIC2.0 at extracted EP0000208387.exe using an hexeditor......

    Ok, thanks yen. I didn't know it was so easy to mod this BIOS. Great news!

    Anyway, seing that the official BIOS does not have SLIC 2.1, I will continue using Daz loader. I don't want to risk my laptop. I will update it with a modded BIOS the same day MS does something against loaders.

    Thanks man!.
