    I didn't see this posted in any of the other threads so I thought I'd post it here, forgive me if this is the wrong area or something. Both me and a friend of mine have use this to flash our BIOS on our Dell Dimension E521's without any problems. It's packaged with the latest AWDFlash.exe (v8.94), the BIOS ROM (modded for Dell Phoenis SLIC 2.1), and a batch file that runs all the commands for AWDFlash for you so you don't have to do a thing. Hopefully someone will find this useful for activating their Windows 7 as much as I did.

    I used this on my E521 today. Haven't installed Windows 7 yet, but RW-Everything shows SLIC 2.1 in the table!

    thanks!

    Sidenote - i didn't use the AWDFLASH.EXE, I used WinFlash 1.9 (google for it, I can't post links yet)

    didn't feel like making a bootdisk =)

    Do I just extract the file and put it into a USB flash drive and boot from it?

    alternate download, for the Dell Dimension E521 SLIC 2.1 bios?

    this 'sharebee' upload site is a nightmare. I don't want to cough up my email address, or fill out lengthy surveys (asking for my mailing address, etc.) in exchange for a 1-megabyte file...!
    I don't mind viewing advertisements in exchange for a free service- but I find this a little too intrusive.

    does anyone have a link to this file? or can anyone email it to me?

    thanks

    Check my sig to make a dos-bootable pen drive. Then put those 3 files in the pen drive; boot from it & type dosflash in the prompt!! ;)

    Or get WinFlash, which worked perfectly for me and seems like it may be easier for you

    I cannot believe that this thread got revived at the time that it did since I was looking for the same thing.

    @LatinMcG, The .bin file you provided worked great with awdflash. Thanks!

    Although I was unable to do a backup from the flash utility, which made me a little nervous, I powered through it and all is well.
