    This did not work for me at all.
    I tried it twice, btw. I flashed from DOS.

    "Dump Error ! (SLIC Table Not found ! )"

    mbmalone - Flash back to the original Dell D600 A16 BIOS. The install RW-Everything 1.4.7 and upload your zipped ACPI Tables report.

    If you can't attach the zip or post URL's, then break up the URL like 'lazyguy' did.

    mbmalone - Ok, I ended up making the exact same BIOS that the original poster made. I see from your other posts that you are not a newbie when it comes to flashing the Dell BIOS'es, just make sure you are flashing this BIOS for real DOS and not just a Windows Command Prompt.

    If you're trying to flash from an existing Windows Vista or 7, then you'll need to get the DCCU utility. See here for more info.

    tqhoang, I was flashing from pure dos via a bootable usb. I have no idea why it wouldn't take? The only thing I can think is perhaps I should have copied the upgraded bios to the harddrive and ran the utility from there. I was dumb that I didn't think of doing that and it was for my brother who took his son's notebook away last night :-(. I ended up having to just put the windows loader 1.9.2 on it :-(. The bios update didn't do anything bad when I ran it, it just didn't give me the SLIC. If I had the notebook, I would try it a third time from the harddrive instead of from the flash drive.

    I have DELL's DCCU Utility 3.0, but I have not used it. I ran it and there were so many options I wasn't sure which options to choose only to convert the bios for install under Windows 7.

    thank you for your help ...

    mbmalone are you sure the bios u flashed twice includes the SLIC?
    How about is the BIOS you're flashing tested by someone?
    I think there must be a mistake either in ur computer or the bios u flash...

    Yes, I flashed with the one with the SLIC, because it had SLIC in the filename.
    Like I said, I would give it one more shot but I just don't have the notebook anymore :-(

    I do have another computer for my mom I am trying to get done, but it has Award Bios and SLIC 2.0.
    Nobody has done it, yet.

    Out of curiosity, did you have the original BIOS "D600_A16.EXE" in the folder when you ran the D600_A16_SLIC.EXE (or the 8.3 version of the filename)?

    At this point, I'm no longer sure? I suppose it was possible I had both files in the folder at the same time and with the 8.3 version of the filename I ran the wrong bloody file . It pisses me that I don't have access to the computer at this time to try it again. I deleted all the bios files for it that I have and now have only just the two files below which I am saving for a future date. I appreciate your thinking about what I may have done, it is possible.

    Only reason I ask is because I've seen modders state that you should rename it to the original filename. Whenever I flash from DOS, I only have the SLIC modded executable in the folder, so maybe that's why I've been able to use the 8.3 (aka tilde) filename ok.

    Anyway good luck with your other mod.

    I was looking for this for many years. I ran your version of Dell Latitude D600 - A16 SLIC 2.1 BIOS update from Windows XP. It works like a charm.

    This version is confirmed working.

    Thanks.

    Installed flawlessly on my D600 from a generic boot CD command prompt.

    D600 48-bit LBA included on this BIOS mod ?

    Hello, guys. New at this forum, found it when looking for a way to update Latitude D600 hard disk limit of 137 GB in BIOS.
    I don't know about this SLIC thing, read a little and understood it is designed for auto activating more modern OSes on machine.
    My target is not that, since I can run Win XP and that's the only OS I need.
    What I need is a way to be able to see my brand new 160 GB disk entire capacity on BIOS.
    So I ask you: does this BIOS mod add 48-bit support to A16 version ?
    Thanks in advance for your attention.

    hello, tqhoang, thanks for your answer !
    For bad luck, mine has got ATI Radeon 9000 video card.
    Is it possible to use a pen drive instead of an USB floppy drive for flashing and recovering, if I get it bricked ?
    In case anyone gets to know how to add 48-bit LBA to D600 BIOS, please let me know.
    Thank you, guys.

    Don't bother...it's going to brick and you'll need a USB floppy. I'm not sure if the bootblock has support for USB sticks.
