    Hi,

    I recently updated my BIOS from Award to AMI UEFI, used AndyP’s Phoenix tool to insert GIGABYTE SLIC 2.1. The tool reported that SLIC added successfully. After flashing the bios, windows 7 crash with BSOD on startup, but boot in to safe mode without problems. I have windows 8 on my pc as well and it has no problems to boot and works fine. From the described above I suspect that windows 7 crashes at the point when it tries to verify the license, because it is not validating the license in safe mode.
    I will be very grateful for any help or suggestions on how to mod my bios, so it will work properly.


    -Manufacturer: GIGABYTE
    -Motherboard Model: GA-Z68X-UD4-B3
    -Bios revision: U1c
    -Bios Type: AMI UEFI

    Thanks

    usualy the problem is in new version bios sometimes ACPI changes and causes windows issues..
    in your case i think something was modded in bios that went wrong.
    what method was it ? module or ?
    try modding bios without readwrite.

    LatinMcG, thanks for your reply.

    The unmodded bios causes no problems at all (except windows ceases to be genuine).
    The only method that worked was module. When I tried dynamic I got message: “No complete SLIC table found. Continue?” after continuing the tool reported success, but no actual SLIC was added (SLICToolKit can’t find one after flashing), and as far as I understood, in dynamic mod the SLIC table being edited, only If it already exists. When I tried SSV2, I got “Unable to add SLIC code” error message. Modding without readwrite, produces the same result as with readwrite, moreover both modded bioses are binary identical. Further suggestions will be highly appreciated.
