    Did you successfully flash your modified BIOS with SLIC 2.1 on F.2E? Your screenshots show it everything worked with Windows 7, but then your P.S. notes confuse me and make me think you bricked your laptop. Did you brick your laptop or successfully install everything?

    Yes, I bricked my laptop once, while I trying to flash other bios that I found here on windows 7. And the result is I can't boot my laptop again.

    I try many many times to recover my laptop, but I'm failed.
    So, I desired to send my laptop to HP Thailand for recovering my bios.
    But, in the last minute I found the way out, I'm try again, and this time I'm can recover my laptop.

    After that I think, I should not try to do it again.But when I found Yen's tutorial to mod phoenix bios. I try to mod my bios and flash it again on DOS.
    And you know, it work.

    So, if you guys need to flash you bios, you should flash on DOS, not your windows 7.

    Do you mean you will flash with winflash on your windows ?

    I never try to do that , I just flash on DOS.
    But if your windows is Vista and you replace original bios with my, it may work.

    Anyway, I recomend you to flash on DOS.

    This link is told you how recovery your laptop from crisis or bricked.
    You can apply this to make a bootable usb flashdrive or usb floppy.
    After you have a bootable usb then you may flash your bios by replace
    bios.wph with my modded bios.

    I use this way to flash my laptop.

    Yes it is Wistron 30CD.
    And I am using F.2E, Released on 2008-12-15.

    I normally use WinFlash to update my BIOS are you saying I should not use that?

    A month ago, I upgraded my BIOS using the official update to F.2E on Windows 7 RC and it worked fine.

    So is Windows 7 RTM activated on yours now?

    What software do I use to upgrade in DOS? I dont have a floppy drive.

    Yes , my windows 7 rtm is activated now.
    If you know what are you doing, and accept the risk that maybe happen.
    You may replace my modded bios to original one and flash on your windows7.

    But, if you can find a usb flashdrive or floppy. I recommend you to flash on DOS.
    You may find some info to make a bootable flashdrive from here http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/2105
    and you may learn how to recover your bios in case of emergency.

    Just make a bootable usb from that post. And you may use phlash16.exe and autoexec.bat from method3's file, and rename my modded bios to bios.wph.
    This should work for you.

    I recommend not to use WinFlash either. I Just bricked my hp dv2910us. Is there a way to flash the bios with a usb drive (Memorex USB 2.0 128mb) because the instructions here

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/2105

    aren't informative enough and everyone says it wont work, that you have to have a Usb Floppy.
