    Hello

    If a motherboard has a Slic 2.1 bios, does it corporates a Slic 1.0 too? sorry if my question is stupid.

    thnx

    Depends.

    If it came from the factory as SLIC 2.1, no.

    If it was modded using the available tools, it's possible the modder also ticked the "SLP 1.0" box.

    This is incorrect..Most factory bios with factory SLIC 2.0 have an SLP 1.0 string also.

    Very few bios come with SLIC 2.1 as of late..maybe this fall..

    You need to understand the separation and differences though..two different technologies..

    @albsat:
    You can use the OEMBIOS.exe tool for the most part, it gets most of them, or you can put a link to the bios and ask someone to check it..

    If it came with an OEM, it likely has at LEAST SLP1.0

    This tool does not work in 64 bit...sorry.

    We can always add one, either manually, with the DMI cd, or with the tool.

    When you get into which OEM to add, it can get tricky. All SLP are not valid in all bios offsets. Some have very strict addresses and cannot be inserted into bios due to existing code. The tool inserts the SLP into very small area of bios (always open and writable)..you need to be sure the SLP is valid there.

    I know this is an old topic, but I had the same question.

    I'm running 64bit OSes, so I to had the same problem with using Oembios.exe to find out if my Bios with Slic 2.0 had a 1.0 as well. "Which it does have both". HP Model A6604f - Asus M2N68-LA - Narra3-GL8E -
    BIOS VendorPhoenix Technologies, LTD
    BIOS Version5.14
    BIOS Date06/20/2008
    BIOS Size1024 KB

    Quick work around: Download oembios.exe and place it in a folder you will remember, then Grab yourself a copy of Hiren's Bootcd 10.0 if you don't have it already. Then when you Boot the cd , select from the run window the "Mini Windows Xp" option.

    Once windows loads from the CD, navigate to the folder where you stored the oembios.exe, right click the folder and choose "Command prompt here" option.

    Last, type in oembios at the command prompt.

    You don't have to use Xp, any boot cd that gives you Dos and the access you need to your file system type, Fat, Ntfs...or whatever. I only used Hiren's because it's what I have, and it boots every time off the many different Hardware configs I have..

    Hope this is useful to someone... :)
