    I have downloaded a new bios. But I would like to determine the SLIC version in the new bios BEFORE flashing my motherboard, how can i do this?

    use the program Slic Dump ToolKit 2.x or RW-Everything. Just search in the forums for a tut.

    Yup is easier if you don't know what to look for in the dump.

    Anyway, you can try to open it in hex Editor, find SLICv

    read below.


    On the other hand, before flashing, it'll be easier and better to use RWeverything. Also the modders prefer that... (hence the start reading off course:D)

    ??? :confused:
    He wants to know if a new (downloaded) bios contains 2.1 SLIC without actually flashing, what use could Everest/RWeverything Possible have then?

    If this is a BIOS Rom coming from the OEM (i.e. unmodified), you probably won't find anything since most structures within the file are compressed and only expanded to memory at runtime. You would need to find and use a Bios editor tied to the manufacturer of the bios (AMI, Award, Phoenix, etc.) to load the file and look at the expanded structures to find the SLIC table.

    If it's an already patched BIOS (i.e. patched manually to include a SLIC table), then using an Hex editor might be enough.

    Nope..unless it is a AMI with SSv2 mod..all others have the SLIC in a module. You need a tool like Andy's that searches the uncompressed modules for a table, or decompress it yourself and look..

    Award = cbrom + winhex

    AMI = mmtool + winhex

    Phoenix = PBE + winhex


    very few have the slic hanging out there....:D:D
