    Just tried mod for "HP Compaq 6520s/6720s/6820s Notebook PC" above.
    The test laptop was HP6720s with Vista Ultimate .
    Current bios 68MDU Ver F 0D (Official latest bios from HP with Slic v2.)

    File downloaded as instructed in first post above was "sp41877_MOD.rar"
    Uncompressed the rar and ran "sp41877.exe" as Administrator.
    The HPQ wizard shows error message as shown on image

    What am i doing wrong

    Thank you very much "TTAV134" for your fast reply and hard work which is very much appreciated.
    I downloaded the revised HPQFlash utility package as per your post.
    As usual i ensured that all anti virus, firewall was switched off on my HP 6720s laptop.
    The "sp41877.exe" was ran as an administrator and worked quite smoothly until the end.
    At the end the HPQFlash utility confirmed that the utility had completed and would reboot in so many seconds ("Count down for reboot). When pressing the finish button a windows message popped up saying that "HPQFlash had stooped". Sorry i did not take down the exact message as i first thought i may have a problem.
    Although i was worried i new that the HPQFlash had completed the update and that this error message was windows vista related. Perhaps windows error event log.
    I then crossed my fingers and manualy rebooted. On re-boot i went into the bios and loaded bios defaults.
    The laptop was then booted into my windows vista which went smoothly.
    Checked the bios and slic with "SLIC_ToolKit_V3.2". SLIC 2.1 clearly shown which was previously SLIC 2.0.
    The process was a complete success.

    Great work

    Once again many thanks. Attachement confirmation for slic 2.1 below.

    PS - Just found the windows vista event log. I dont understand what it means. See attachment below.
    The bios mod seems succesfull regardless of this.

    I would like to mod my nw8240 mobile workstation bios to add SLIC table.
    I have made an Uniflash copy of my bios and RW report.
    Could anyone help to insert the SLIC table? :biggrin:

    My nx7300 doesn't boot after I installed this rompaq. It didn't show any errors during the installation. When I try to power it on, caps lock lamp flashes and that's all, the screen is black.

    yes it is a known problem, solved now.

    1- make a HP bios recovery
    2- download the package from here and try again.

    I've soldered out the BIOS chip and put your image *.bin directly through the special device and now it works :) Unfortunately there is no any information such as Model and Serial in the BIOS info...

    Thank you!

    All these informations can be enter with commonly named HPSetCfg: HPBI103.exe,

    You have first to build a Bootable DOS USB pen with this HP DMI TOOLKIT and launch the command HPBI103
