    Good to hear! :) It was Toshiba just so you know (it had to be or it wouldn't activate since you havn't installed any other manufacturers certificates). :)

    It doesn't. And now I can't get either wifi cards to turn on. It worked initially but now I have this problem. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Try reverting your BIOS back to the manufacturer's original one for now until he can come up with a better way

    Yeah just flash your BIOS with the original and that will fix it. :) I will have a go with my other method this afternoon if you are willing to try it. :)

    Hi,everyone.
    When i use this marker.bin to replace the module with the GUID of "DD6569A7-E455-4EE5-B2BA-ECDA84ACBC99",and flash the *.fd file.the marker of slic has disappeared.it's a full slic before.


    then,i flash the offical *.fd file,the marker appeared again.i want to know,what's the fault.

    i add two 00 in the end of the marker.bin.is this the fault?

    Why you have added two zero bytes? The marker usually is B6h =182 bytes in size....
    Would you upload your bios please?

    Yes, I've replaced the marker using direct edit method.
    The additional 2 zero bytes belong to the module, because module size divided by four must result to an integer. (Same FC module at AMI).

    B8/4 = 2E
    B4/4 = 2D

    B6/4 = not integer!

    Does it work?

    yes,it worked.
    so what i did(added two 00 in the end of the marker.bin,and use the ezh20.exe to replace module) wasn't wrong?with two 00 i made the module B8h bytes,but the marker was lost,quick strange.maybe the ezh20.exe has changed some other things at the same time.

    Yes could be possible. I prefer the direct edit method using winhex. Winhex shows a message when the memory has changed!!
    Then you should cancel modding. And start again from scratch. No message appearing and the mod will be fine.

    @Yen: Is there a way we could modify the BIOS without using WinHex (eg decompressing the modules via lzma)?
