    How to flash with PHLASH17 @ Phoenix bios?

    Have tried several guides, and searched searched searched, for several days now but no solution.

    I have the SLIC2.1 modded .WPH bios file, but for some reason I cannot flash with Windows (the bios update utility just shuts down).

    But how to flash from DOS, booting from USB with PHLASH17 (or maybe other way), have not found any guides on this here or else where, somebody please help me getting SLIC2.1 on my Samsung NC20.

    If you downloaded the file... SAMSUNG_NC20-Samsung-09MQ.rar Use WinRAR to extract ALL the files....

    In the extracted Files Serch for a Folder... Modified Bios and Original Bios and Utlities

    Inside this Folder you will find alot of files & 3 Extra Folders....Extractor/Modified/Original

    Navigate to the Modified Folder....Choose One of The Modified DELL OR THOSHIBA BIOSES & rename the bios file from 09MQ_SLIC.WPH to 09MQ.WPH

    Then Move that file to the Root Directory of Modified Bios and Original Bios and Utlities You should then see lots of DLL files & EXE Files in this directory together with the 09MQ.WPH Modified File just moved....

    Look for a file.... SWinFlash.exe

    Double-Click it & follow the instructions on screen, It should Update the BIOS for you......

    All the files are in included in the WIN_NC20_09MQ.exe file downloaded from the SAMSUNG Website....

    All your doing is just bypassing a step, by having all the files extracted first....

    This method should work as I tested it on a HP dv8000 laptop a few days ago....

    But as with everything, you do so at your own risk!!!

    Thanks for your guide, though cannot get it to work, when it comes to the actual flashing part with WinFlash, it just exit the app, tried several other versions of WinFlash, and when comes to the last step of flashing the bios, an error popup message comes to show.

    Very strange, tried both XP and W7, maybe the bios in my system is locked or something?

    From Busykid's previous post in this thread (with addded steps by me):
    FLASH BIOS in DOS using PHLASH17 (PH161700) on a bootable USB Flash Drive -
    1. Rename 09MQ_SLIC.WPH to 09MQ.WPH
    2. Place that file and PHlash17 onto your Bootable USb Drive and reboot with that Drive as the first Boot Devive.
    3. at command prompt in DOS, type: ph161700 /x 09MQ.WPH
    4. Hit Enter key and it will flash the BIOS.
