Thanks to the guys on this forum i manage to install windows 7 ultimate and activate it after downloading the A17 bios with slic 2.1 from this forum Know i have a new challenge ahead. Dell bios A17 has a onboard diagnostic program called PSA+ Basically this utility is somewhere in the flash and i don't the size or how to replace it. I would like to know if there is away to access the diagnostic partition on the motherboard to replace the software with something else (acronis lice cd ). for ex. I have read that is diagnostic utility is build into the bios but i have a felling that the bios actualy hides this partition or what ever it is . Is there a way to mode the bios so i can replace the diag app with something else?
