    The official BIOS does not seem to contain SLIC. Temporarily use AMITool to add back the lost SLIC.
    Suspected that the DMI was overwritten during the AFUDOS upgrade, resulting in the loss of the SLIC table.

    I've taken a look at the stock BIOS images, and as you may already know, there's no built-in SLIC. It could be possible that ASUS used some kind of DMI tool (e.g. this one) to introduce the SLIC table on the fly, but we don't have much information on such pre-UEFI firmware images when it comes to permanent SLIC modding.

    Tito, I am thinking of buying an 'Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus', as this has a UEFI bios can it be modified for a SLIC 2.1 to be inserted?

    Edit: A great deal of the links are now dead, that were used for tools and BIOS info. I cannot even find a request thread for ASUS UEFI BIOS. I see that Serg008 has managed to modify an Asus TUF Gaming X570-WIFI bios in the past, so it seems it can be done.

    Cheers.

    Yes, the UEFI firmware of most consumer ASUS motherboards can be SLIC modded. And your request is in its correct place.

    Thanks for confirming that, Tito. That has now made my mind up to purchase this particular board now. Serg008 seems to use 'Phoenixtool 2.73', so I shall now have to research that piece of software and the 'Mod method: Structure (New module)' he mentions.

    Edit: I shall take a closer look at the start of this thread as well.

    Edit II: Is it really this easy with Phoenixtool?
