    Yup was meaning HP. I checked it with some of the tools posted on this forums and it didnt display anything for SLIC 2.1?

    I also then try someof the certifications to activate just in case it has SLIC 2.1 but this didnt work.

    That's why I was asking how they are doing it? Ive tryed RW-Everything to have a look at the BIOS and couldnt see a ACPI tab as well some SLIC Dump Toolkit and a few others.

    Any ideas/?

    If it is a freedos or no OS machine, then you need to use the DMI tools..

    The netbook didnt come with a OS installed but I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and then downloaded this latest BIOS.

    So the BIOS is SLIC 2.1 but doesnt have the tables.

    I am interested cos they are shipping upgrade disks to people. I guess they use a DMI Tool to add the SLP key to the BIOS SLIC table?

    Where do I get the DMI tool and the SLP key from? Any instructions on how to do this?

    Cheers

    I think its an area that is not flashed without the "/F" ie: 0000-???? (beginning block). It contains the HP logo also and pubkey.

    Is it possible to get someone to mod this BIOS for me/? HP Mini 5101? Where would I ask for this to be done?

    Mods will not help, you need to change the service tag to allow the slic to become active.

    Even if not needed by me, it is considered good behavior if you say, "nevermind i got it working ... i did this, and this, and here is the moded bios, blah, bhal, blha".

    Finally I solved it.

    All I did is that booting with dos and "hpbi103 write slp on"

    I checked slp enabled....with "hpbi103 read slp"

    wow...i'm very happy.

    Thanks guys~ anyway~
