    I just successfully modded an MSI-P4M900-M2 for Dell Ultimate x64, and pre activation was flawless. But I cannot seem to get my current MSI H55M-P31 to mod correctly.
    I'm using the Dell SLIC 2.1 bin file that comes default with AMITOOL 1.66, and the digital cert that I got from my Dell Laptop via SLIC Dump Tool (which worked with my previous BIOS mod)

    My BIOS runs, but doesn't pre-activate Windows 7. The only thing that is different is the BIOS has a dummy OEMSLIC on it. Would that have anything to do with my failure?

    I just tried letting SLIC in the nvram, and and a few other Dell certs with no luck.

    When the Popup about the Dummy SLIC appears choose CANCEL and then use the SSV2 Method.

    I did that and it switches to Custom which doesn't work. I even tried SSV3 and had no luck.
    I understand that SSV3 is supposed to brick almost any MSI board. That didn't happen which now leads me to believe that my board is preventing the nodded bios from installing via a backup.

    Cancel the Popup and choose MSI as the manufacturer and then choose SSV2 Method, Try it you'll like it. ;)
    It will almost certainly work with an SSV2 Mod.

    Well you made me feel like a moron. Becuase it worked.
    Thank you.


    I have to say I love this forum, you guys make this so easy, and that AMITOOL is great! The help here is great, I learned how to do my first mod just by seacrhing through the threads.

    And tell Suicide Solution that Randy is one of my favorite guitar players too lol!

    Do you currently have a repository or collection for modded BIOSes? I'd like to know so I can contribute.
