    this is a request (and a follow up) for the eMachines t5048 desktop computer.
    my friend's parents own this type of PC and I want it to have either slic 2.0 or 2.1
    into the bios.

    someone did try to make a request for a bios mod for the t5048 computer in this old thread:
    h ttp://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/814-Award-amp-AMI-Bios-mod-requests-Previous-requests/page283
    but never mentioned a link to the original bios download for the computer.

    Latest BIOS download for eMachines/Gateway T5048 computer:
    h ttp://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?tab=5&modelId=1617
    it doesn't seem to use an AMI bios and inside the download, it seems to use intel bios flashers and it seems to be an OEM Intel D101GGC motherboard.

    u are not in luck.. intel uses special bios protections. hard to get it to slic.

    only way is to flash it to unbrand it from gateway with a real intel bios for same board .. then use the intel SLP marker tool. (doesnt work if its branded by an OEM.. only intel box sold boards.. not all)
