    I've downloade last bios update from FUJITSU Homepage
    If i try to load it in Phoenix_Mod_Tool_1.35 it tell me:
    bios.JPG
    n.2 SLIC 2.0 and n.2 SLIC 2.1 :confused:
    i think..."I don't need bios mod, SLIC 2.1 is already added".
    After bios update (with original bios) SLIC Toolkit tell me:
    Slic TK.jpg
    I see only 2.0 SLIC, but i need SLIC 2.1.
    Can anyone help me?

    Are you sure that this bios for your laptop ? Do you tried to flash original bios before ?
    There are two LIFEBOOK E8420 models :
    - with NVidia Gfx http://webdownload.ts.fujitsu.com/d...ize=3097427&From=YWFhc29vVHd3c2JiUFBsaXFzXywq
    - with Intel Gfx http://webdownload.ts.fujitsu.com/d...ize=1598717&From=Xl5ecGx4UXR3cF9fTU1saXFwXysx

    Absolutely sure! I flashed original BIOS before. Nice idea! :)
    I started recovery yesterday at 11pm and finished successfull at 5:45am today. This damn Crisis Recovery of Lifebooks work a bit different to normal descriptions. For example: PHLASH16.EXE isn't able to flash these and BIOS ROMs renamed to WPH don't work!
    I will post a description in recovery thread when I've done.

    This morning I had to give back the E8420 and got an S7220. Now did a try with this one.
    Following results:
    latest BIOS-Version v1.15
    phoenixtool185 - dynamic - standard settings: brick
    phoenixtool185 - SSV2 - standard settings: brick

    I did this successfully with other Siemens-Fujitsus before (using dynamic mode) - but this is my first Lifebook. Maybe you can have try!? I'll test it immediately!
    Here BIOS-File and RWA-Report: hxxp://ul.to/r2m4js97

    I look forward to your reply!

    I'm flashing...
    No luck - just BIOS-Bootblock beeping and waiting for recovery.
    Recovery done.

    What a dirty BIOS... Do you have another try?
