    I'm having an awfully hard time trying to get my 2.1 slic to be complete in my dv2000 bios. I've tried flashing in windows and in dos but to each no avail. Can someone help me and figure this out? I've attached the RWeverything report, the original and modded bios and a screenshot. Thanks

    go to the bios setup, if it doesnt say that vista is the instaled OS you cant flash the slic table... You need to tag it first with the right dmi tool.... all the DV2x series use the same mobo... I had to do this just to reenable VISTA when I swapped out the mobo.. otherwise it wouldnt even flash the slic info using the stock bios

    This was what I did.

    Change the SKU using one of the DMI tool to "Comes preinstalled with a Vista OS".

    Then I used the SLIC 2.1 BIOS from this post. Followed the flashing instructions from Busykid508, using phlash tool.

    Finally used Windows 7 Loader to insert the certificate & CD Key.

    I'm having the exact same issue as njdevsfan2487 except with Busykid508's f39 (intel newest) bios. I install the slic 2.1 bios following Busykid508's instructions using all the switches he lists for phlash16. Then used the HP DMI tool HPBQ189 to change to Vista OS installed. Only the bios shows Windows XP only no matter what I do

    Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what else I can do to get the slic table to take?

    Thank you. I use phlash161700 and it cmd commands and my dv2125nr finally a slic2.1. i do not need to use DMI Tool for changing non-vista to vista in the bios setup.

    I have the same problem with an HP DV2008EA (AMD CPU).
    I downloaded HPBQ189.exe and execute it after the boot in DOS with a pendrive, pressed "G" and then selected "Vista OS" (there's "No definition for this system").
    But in the BIOS i've still "non-vista OS" in "preinstalled OS", therefore i've the same problem with SLIC TOOLKIT and activation needed.

    Any ideas?


    EDIT: i've tried HPBI103.exe to enable SLIC, but i faced to "Read Failed ERRORCODE=0X86" error.

    EDIT2: SOLVED!!! Using "HP_Notebook_DMIFIT_2C10_Utility" finally i was able to modify preinstalled OS in "VISTA" (Windows 7 won't work) and now everything is OK!
