    Hello,

    I have a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R motherboard and I used a modded BIOS found in the All SLIC 2.1 thread (the BIOS matched my motherboard's exact model & revision). I flashed it from DOS on a bootable floppy but when I came back into Windows and checked with the SLIC dump tool, it seems I still have SLIC 2.0.

    I also tried using QFlash - still didn't work.

    Edit:

    Okay, using QFlash I've saved a copy of my current BIOS to my flash drive. Back in Windows, I checksummed the modded BIOS which I flashed and the current BIOS which I saved from QFlash, and they're different! So this means that my motherboard has ignored my modded BIOS flash and continued using the old one... Anybody know a way around this, any way that I can permanently delete the older one?

    What about flashspi to flash from pure DOS? It's the best IMHO for Gigabyte biosmod updates...

    I have tried with FLASHSPI.exe and QFlash.
    I am able to flash between official Gigabyte BIOSes, F9, F11, etc, but as soon as I try to flash the modded BIOS it just switches to vanilla F11.

    By any chance could you be using a loader now? The reason I ask is I just had a similar problem and didn't know it. The Windows Vista I had installed had a loader and I wasn't up on all of this and didn't know it. So when I used a BIOS I found here that was supposed to be SLIC 2.1, SLIC dump told me I had SLIC 2.0 and a Asus notebook. I flashed back to the original Gigabyte BIOS and it still said I had a Asus notebook. I came here with my problem and the good folks here told me my problem was I probably had a loader and I did. Just something to check.
