    Hello,
    I have Gigabyte motherboard GA-Z68XP-UD4 and I want to use recently published UEFI (version U1g, http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3910#bios.
    I used BIOS patching tools for years, but I don't know how to inject SLIC 2.1 into UEFI.
    Can someone advice me?

    here is the bios modded with Phoenix mod tool 2.05
    Module method
    flash original first. then flash this one
    http://www.mediafire.com/?6481msu46057p2s
    rename without _SLIC
    put in USB DOS flash stick and the autoexec.bat from original gigabyte .zip flashes.

    Excuse me for stupid questions, but will I need to reinstall my OS after BIOS update (as there are changes in boot loading)?
    I have 2 Vertex3 SSDs arranged into a RAID0. Will this RAID array be recognized by Intel controller BIOS or I will need to make an array once again after UEFI flash?

    Windows will reinstall some drivers and reboot. This Beta Bios is also limited by Gigabyte for stability so no overclocking. Waiting for final release now to see if it is going to allow for more options. Thanks for the Bios.

    For those who are interested in this bios for the sake of upgrading STOP!. It suks. it is slow and buggy and I advise anyone to wait for a more stable or final release. As for the Slic table modding it works flawlessly.

    Another stupid question.... Why to use Phoenix tool to mod the latest BIOS U1g for my Mobo Z68XP-UD4
    http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3910#bios
    When Gigabyte claim to use an AMI Bios for Z68 UEFI boards ?
    Is it necessary to use a RW report file for modding the BIOS ?. If yes, should I first flash the UEFI BIOS before or can I use the RW file from my current Award Bios ?
    Thanks to clarify, I am lost.
