    Hi,

    Has anybody been able to put SLIC 2.1 in the existing SLIC 2.0 BIOS? (HP-Compaq 6820s bios version F.0B)

    Thanks in advance,

    Applegate.

    Have the same laptop here. Bios version is F.0D RWeverything shows SLIC 2.0 where SLIC ToolKit shows 2.1. I guess with this HP bios only way to go is WoW bootloader. Can anyone conform this bios can't be modded please?

    6830s have slic 2.1 in latest bios, however it needs to be turned on with HPBI103.EXE... Might be same for 6820s model... if bios is from around summer 2009 then there is big chance slic got updateded.

    NONE of the Compaq Business notebooks are mod-able, so no point asking really

    interesting though cos when you open them all with winhex and search for "SLIC" it comes up 3 times!

    Wrong, i have absolutly no clue where you see that bios for 6830s... latest bios is F.12 from 14 Sep 2009 and its accessible on HP site, however like i said SLIC needs to be enabled with HPBI103.EXE.

    What i did was (with 6830s), first i was using DAZ loader, but normal method didnt work, alternative did tho. Then since there is sleep issue and windows becomes unactivated when laptop comes from sleep (ACPI tables gets reseted at that point), i started to look in to bios mod. I already made moded bios with phoenixtool and found moded HPQFLASH that ignores sig check. So ye (some) HP laptop bioses are modable, in theory (6830s bios is EFI based anyway)... But then someone suggested HPBI103.EXE and it indeed worked and ofc i rather used "proper" method with originial bios, then experimenting with flashing my moded one. Im sure that also moded bios would work, but rather didnt try and risk it since it wasnt my laptop :)

    Ok,Ok, by 6830s you meant the model 6830s while i meant the plural of 6830!!!:D
    But really Solor, can you do that with F.58A? Mine (dv6830us) has slic 2.1 added to it via phoenixtool, but just curious can you use this HP tool on it?

    You probably can (or with one of other 2 tools for HP computers, HPBI103.EXE is not the only one)... However not sure what result it will be. If you moded it with phoenixtool and pubkey/marker stayed 2.0, i assume if you enable this OEM activation with HPBI103.EXE it will revert to 2.0 slic. What i know about 6830s model is. Its EFI bios, with key/marker 2.1 and DUMMY slic. If pubkey/marker would be 2.0 i would assume there are 2 ways this can be moded. One would be, replace pubkey/marker and leave dummy slic and then use HPBI103.EXE to enable oem activation. Otherway is, replace dummy slic with full 2.1 SLIC and leave OEM activation off. Both way should work... in theory... Or just replace pubkey/marker and dummy slic and forget about HPBI103.EXE and whatever default setting there is. You need to watch out what slic you are inserting, if originaly there was HPQOEM.SLIC-MPC 2.0 slic, you need to use HPQOEM.SLIC-MPC 2.1 slic or it wont work (for example not even other HP slic wont work or from any other company, it must be exact match by OEMID and TABLEID).

    Daz or HPBI103.EXE for HP Compaq 6830s ?

    I'm helping a friend here with his HP Compaq 6830s (via phone/teamviewer). What would be a safest way to activate Win 7 please...

    -- Daz Loader v1.9.3

    though here you said:
    but that was of March 10, '10, any news if new v1.9.3 working with 6830s or not?

    OR

    -- first upgrade HP BIOS to F.12 (14 Sep 2009) and then enabled/turn it on with HPBI103.EXE as you mentioned in this post:

    in that case how and what to turn on/enable with HPBI103.EXE, please...

    from this post I did find HPBI103.EXE and MiniDOS (can i use Win 98 bootable USB? as I've recently used it from here: http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm ), what are the exact commands ?



    Thanks a million in advance.

    the title of the thread is HP6820 SLIC 2.1 any progress? not 6830s, and what are you searching for your HP6830?

    does preliminary checking of the visibility of the SLIC table have been done (with slic dumptoolkit for exemple)
    if slic table is hidden then use the "HP DMI TOOLKIT" from this place
    everything is in the toolkit (tools and how to)

    Once the slic table is activate go to this place for Windows7 installation and activation.

    Because of SoLor's 6830s related posts...

    first, this thread showed up in 6830s search and secondly because of SoLor's 6830s related posts. You can read three of SoLoR's quotes in my earlier post...
