    This does not match SLIC 2.0 or SLIC 2.1 using the method of matching certain bits. Does this BIOS support SLIC 2.1?

    I have exhausted google searches and now need some expert advice. I also have a full .bin save of the entire ACPI tables if they are required to figure this out. Thanks in advance!

    I can confirm the A17 mod does work. I have fully tested it. 1525 is safe to flash, see the confirmed and easy recovery procedure in "All about dell bios recovery"
