    I had already flashed with a modded F.07 bios for this netbook. Today I saw in the HP website that there is a new bios F.16 that supports Windows 7.

    Question:-

    Anyone knows this F.16 bios can support Windows 7 Ultimate?

    In the HP site it says as follows :-

    Released:2009-10-22
    Version:F.16
    Compatibility:Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit), Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic (32-bit), Microsoft Windows 7 Starter (32-bit), Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit), Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
    System requirements:Operating Systems
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic 32 Edition
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Edition
    Microsoft Windows 7 Starter 32 Edition
    Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional



    Description:This package contains the WinFlash Utility and a System BIOS image for the supported HP NetBook models (with a 308F Family ROM) and operating systems. The WinFlash Utility is used to locally flash the System BIOS (ROM) on NetBooks operating in a Microsoft Windows environment.

    Enhancements:- Fixes an issue where a Bluetooth device is shown in the HP Wireless Assistant, even when there is no Bluetooth device plugged in.


    Thanks!!! :)

    SLIC does not change for each version of Win7, if it supports one it will support them all. the only change between versions is the serial number, even the cert stays the same..

    Does this mean you can upgrade from Win 7 Home to Ultimate by changing just the Key?

    Well, you'd still have to perform an upgrade or re-install to actually GET Ultimate. BUt then, yes, all you would have to do afterwards is insert the Ultimate SLP key.

    Thanks for the feedback. Wouldn't you have to put in a Certificate as well?

    The above is similiar to what I saw from my netbook model "HP Mini 110-1079TU".....

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...&dlc=en&cc=sg&lang=en&os=4062&product=4033255

    In this site it says F.16 bios which says compatible/system requirement for Winxp/Win 7. When I flashed this bios, my win7 ultimate turn to notification mode. I did a cert/key insert and reboot. Still notification mode.

    I check everest s/w to see if got slic 2.1, but NOTHING ....haha :)

    Anyone had similiar problem? Does this bios really has SLIC 2.1 ? I check other mades of HP MINI 110 also have bios upgraded......

    :mad:

    What I am saying is that we may have to same outcome when flashed to f.16 or f.17 bios. I may be wrong though.....

    Just that when I flashed to f.16 bios...my win 7 ultimate turned to notification mode, even after I inserted hp cert and key

    Is there a new one?

    I flashed a modded F.07 bios to my netbook and was using fine with my hp cert/acer key for win7 ultimate.

    When I saw there is a new f.16 bios for this netbook i flashed it and it turned to notification mode. I inserted my hp cert/acer key for win7 ultimate and still notification mode.

    Any advise?

    Oh well it gets confusing every minute.

    I am trying to gather info about this new bios f.16, while trying to psycho my wife to release her netbook for me to test :D (this netbook was a present to her from me).

    I am not very technical thats why I cannot confirm this f.16 has SLIC 2.1 or not

    Current netbook using:-

    Modded f.07 bios
    HP 2.0 cert
    Acer ultimate key

    I tried:-
    Flashing to f.16 original bios
    HP 2.0 cert
    Acer ultimate key
    resulted in notification mode

    What I wanna find out is whether this original f.16 bios has SLIC 2.1 in it, and/or by using HP 2.1 cert will help.....

    Oh well, hope some experts in MDL can bring me to my senses.........

    Look in the Repository directory and follow the directions. Daz's loader just has standard certificates, not the entire set. He's actually going to add them all at some point; even though you can do it manually yourself by putting them in the certificates directory. Anyways, use the Slic Dump Toolkit to see if it shows that you have 2.1 I am pretty sure you do with the new BIOS update so.

    Use OpaTools to install a HP cert. There's probably multiple ceritificates but the slic dumpkit will show you which one is in the bios. For my toshiba it showed like toshiba-INV or something similar. Just try each certificate until it activates. Disconnect from the internet when you're doing this just incase. Pretty sure you have 2.1 with that BIOS.
