    tried the oa2intel tool in dos with the following error. This board cannot be modded?

    INT 15h EF01h failed to return EFI Variable Size -- FAILURE
    AH = 86h - NOT_SUPPORTED
    This tool is not authorized to update this BIOS.

    I thought the intel tool only adds SLP, not SLIC? from what I understand, the intel tool is pretty useless these days

    you're using winphlash to try to flash this right? you need to go into the advanced settings and uncheck both "flash only if bios version is different" and "flash only if bios version is newer than system"

    Thanks for the reply. Its IFlash. The bios modded with the phoenix tool, but will not take with IFlash... Errors out in windows and dos says the versions are the same therefor it cannot continue
