    Hi, My Current BIOS version is 3.03 & hp has already released update 3.17.

    ----------------------------------
    Recently i found the following about P5BWLA

    http://slics.myftp.org/Busybox/HP-P...W-LE-HP-3.17_sp35153.exe-HP_SLIC21_HP_SLP.rar

    but only the difference is of desktop model no (my is m7581in and other is m7680y)
    CAN I USE THIS LINK
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    NOW COMES THE PROBLEM--
    Since i m a big NooB, wht should be my first step towards SLIC 2.1. updation?
    I want to know myself about the version of my BIOS that where and how can i see the things like SLIC OR SLP. How can i read the .rom file and know about SLIC and SLP.

    What is checksum error and how can it be corrected?
    Are the above link BIOS material is tested.

    Should i first update the BIOS with windows xp original BIOS and then continue the use of SLICenabled .rom BIOS to get perfectly modded.

    what is the use of winflash given with the modded bios how will it work in dos?

    Can you tell me the new features (I tried to read through it but could not find any??)

    In the past I thought of flashing basswood2 bios into basswood..or converting it into an Asus bios..? but that was before all the bios hacking with SLIC and apple's osx DSDT.

    (OP)
    I dont hv BASSWOOD2 i hv BASSWOOD thats why i dont know about it i just read the link and compared it with BASSWOOD becuz you asked about it.
    I want to install and activate windows 7 on my PC thats why i wanted to make it SLIC 2.1 supported. i have windows xp which is as of now very old.
    I didnt even tried for windows vista and getting it converted to SLIC 2.0 becuz of its poor performance.

    Please have a look below
