Hi all, Enjoying a lot a reading in here, yes you have guessed it a noob: I appreciate some guidance, I coulden't find it with the search, I have got vista non SP1 on my pc (Dell OEM version, Abit an8 SLI mobo), and would like to install SP1 and wondered if the bios gets modded when you install vista in some instances or is it something I need to do physically. I would like to check if this has already been modded or not (although I haven't done it myself) is this possible? I don't even know whether I have got the Paradox hack or th other one (forgot the name), is there a way of checking that also? If or once my bios is modded is it safe to just download sp1 from m$ and install or do I need a dvd copy? I know I have got a lot more reading to do, and will to take this to the next level so your help is greatly appreciated.
