    Is there a way to check bios files for slic 2.1, instead of flashing them first.

    Open it up with the mod tool for the bios specified (andyp's).

    Use the decompression tool for these bios..

    Award = cbrom
    AMI = MMtool
    Phoenix = PBE

    Thanks, ok it's an AMI bios. I open it with mmtool, select extract tab,select id, check select "in uncompressed form" on the selected ID, than save. What file extension do I save it as, and howdo I read the uncompressed saved file. Thanks again.

    The reason I ask is I have perused the Asus website and located a bios file for the notebook N81vg that was updated 2009/08/25 and the description of this bios update is "added Win 7 support". I presume this must be the elusive slic 2.1 support from Asus, but I wanted to check this bios file myself to confirm.

    select 1B and save as 1B.rom.

    You can open it with winhex and search for SLIC or RSA1..
