    I am trying to mod the bios in my inspiron 531s for slic 2.1. I know the process and proceedures, but all the url links to busykids mod are dead. i've tried zen's and can't seem to get it to work. anyone have an archived copy of busykids file that they would be willing to share???

    any help would be appreciated.

    i think i have one somewhere.
    problem with some mods was flashing method with wrong switches would wipe LAN MAC address to FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
    but could be fixed with the nvidia lan programmer exe.

    If the 531 is anything like the 530 I use awdflash.exe 713D1P53.bin /py/sn/cc no problem with LAN MAC address unlike others who used wrong switches.
    But this is recommended

    nah 530 is intel chipset and intel cpu. this 531 is nvidia chipset and amd cpu

    i have used /cc/cd/cp/py/wb/sn/E and i believethat one works. so does /f

    its awd873.exe
