My friend has a Gateway Laptop that shipped with Vista SP1. Using Everest 5.3 to check the SLIC table says the SLIC version is unknown. I thought I read somewhere that SLIC 2.1 was implemented with Vista SP1 systems. Is this correct? I don't want to flash the bios since its not my system but if 2.1 is already there I want to use it. Is there a way to check the slic version other than Everest? Also, I would be more comfortable flashing with a bios from the manufacturer, but how could I know in advance if the bios rev contains SLIC 2.1? Any help would be appreciated.
