    i have a XPS M1330, seems it's a phoenix bios with SLP 2.0
    there's no solution to upgrade to SLP 2.1 actually.
    maybe dell will release new bios with SLP 2.1 but if not we'll have to use a loader to activate windows 7 :(

    Dell BIOS files are unmoddable. If Dell continues to support the model and will sell Windows 7 on it then wait for a BIOS update. If they will not sell Windows 7 on it then you will have to use a loader or *gasp* buy the OS.

    Is there no possibility to read out the BIOS from the Device itself?

    i also have phoenix bios for HP with slic 2.0
    most probably the manufacturers will give a bios upgrade once windows 7 becomes publicly available..

    The Studio 13 is one of the computers that will get Windows 7 when available.

    Hey Congrats, That's a nice thing.

    I'm wondering if I could get this working on my XPS M1530.

    MikeBuzz,
    would you care to outline how you changed and reflashed the Dell Phoenix BIOS?

    Thx,

    I followed this guide

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/5520

    Seems that the 1555 bios update does not have a SLIC table, so i downloaded the DELL M09 bin file and used that, renamed it to APCI05.ROM

    Edited the rom.scr file to include the new APCI line, built the new rom file and flashed, all seems ok so far, i didnt change the OEM lines as was still going to be using the Dell cert

    i can upload the full flash if anyone else wants to try

    any chance that this could work on a Dell Xps M1710 ?

    It's also using a Phoenix Bios, but version A07
