Gents, I've been scouring these pages for 3 hours trying to find out if there already exists a Modded bios suitable for a Gateway NV5214U Laptop to install Win 7 Ultimate. (I know the folks doing the Mods work hard so I don't want them to repeat this effort. ) To complicate matters it appears Gateway requires your serial number to download the correct bios. My friends (at where I used to work) have ordered this Laptop for a lady who was laid off as a going away gift (Everyone chipped in.) But it's not going to be delivered for a week, and they'd like me to try to get Win7 Ultimate running on it before the lunch where she gets it. I've done a little digging around and hopefully found the most current bios. It says it's for all versions of windows => so would that mean the SLIC table already contains the code for Win7 ? I know Acer bought out Gateway but I'd still like to install a Gateway Certificate and Ultimate Serial if at all possible. Am I off base here? -Motherboard Manufacturer and Model : Gateway NV5214U -Bios Revision : 1.14 -Bios Type : Phoenix? -Bios SLIC : 2.1? -Bios Link : http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=23806&dscr=NV52 and NV56 BIOS Update V1.14 Thanks for any asistance or information you can pass along.
