    For those of you who have managed to use the "full flash" option of the Insyde BIOS flasher and blank your SLIC, here's how to fix it:

    Open the latest BIOS for your machine in the Phoenix Mod Tool, feed your actual manufacturer (probably Other), SLIC, RW and cert file and then go to Advanced and put a tick in "Allow User to modify other modules" then build the modded BIOS.

    Eventually it will show a message box letting you know it's pausing so that you can edit the files in the DUMP dir, once it does, leave it alone and go to the dump dir and find the file 7E374E25-8E01-4FEE-87F2-390C23C606CD_7_582.ROM (be careful not to select one of the similarly named files)

    Once found, (for convenience, copy the filename to your clipboard) and delete this file then take the SLIC you wish to have and place it in the dump folder and rename it to the file above (by pasting off the clipboard) - make sure the file extension changes too!

    Once done, OK off the message box of the Phoenix tool and wait for it to build the modified BIOS - once complete, flash it with your preferred flasher making sure you do a FULL flash.

    Problem sorted.
