    Have you used latest Phoenix Tool?? Otherwise 'ALASKAA M I' strings should be manually hex-edited. Have you flashed from DOS using EFIFLASH??

    I have same Motherboard.
    Can you tell me if the modded Bios will support also Windows XP SP3 OEM SLP channel without any more modification. ?
    I have a dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.
    Thanks for advice

    Check with this first; otherwise add GIGABYTE SLP string while modding.

    Thanks Tito, but I have already a Windows XP SP3 with OEMBIOS's files in ISO format. So no problem.
    I have the same issue than the OP , It seems that the modded BIOS must be HEX edited, and I am not confortable with that.. :confused:

    If I use the modded Bios my XP will loose activation. I need a modded Bios with SLP and Slic 2.1 added.
    :)

    The tool checks the existence of SLP string in your bios. So check with it first.

    My current BIOS is an Award modded Bios with SLP and SLIC 2.1 I made myself with AwardTools 1.53. It's a "normal Old Bios" .
    The u1L version is a new Gigabyte EFI Bios to replace the "old" fashion bios. So I have to use the AMI-Phoenix Tool to mod this Bios, but failed, and the proposed BIOS does not have SLP in it.
    - Windows 7 is ok, Windows XP is not activated -

    Lets clear this a bit :D

    You have flashed the new EFI and scanned with OEMBIOS tool which didn't detect any SLP string, right??

    That is, the tool does not detect SLP string.

    Hi Tito. I have similar problem as you solved here before. I used to use Gigabyte B75MD3V.F9 modded by myself to work with XP and Win 7 (dual boot). Now I'm trying to do the same with B75MD3V.F12 After a day of reading I found your thread here, and succesfuly managed to solve all Win 7 problems. Unfortunatelly I can't manage to insert SLP for XP (dell as I did before). I'm not looking for ready flash file, I'd like to do this myself. Could you please give me some advice on this or point me to the right thread? Thanks!

    Have you selected the SLP txt while modding with Phoenix Tool??

    Dell or Gigabyte?? Remember that Dell string inserting is a tricky job; better to choose something that covers much broader address range (F000,0000,FFFF).

    I use Dell housing with new MB, so last time I changed everything for Dell. It was 6 months ago, but I remember it wasn't too hard as it is now, for some reason. Now I'm trying to do the same. It's only Bios to be changed - I don't have to touch systems themselves. Maybe something in Advanced options?
