Has anyone been sucessfull in installing Slic 2.1 on this board?
Below in the intel section of the post...
These threads are there to be searched through, you know...
Thanks bud. You wouldn't happen to know how to flash this bio? I take it you need a Dos Utility based program as the Intel site only has the executable types of bios's.
Best flash it in dos, use the dos biosflash tool for your mobo provided on intel support site. Instructions should be provided there also.
Well I tried a USB Boot disc just to find out that you can't boot from USB. I guess I will need to put these files on a DVD. Ok what's the best way to make a bootable DVD with these files on it?

Nah, the modded BIOS in that thread is not SLIC 2.1 that you need for Windows 7. I assume it's SLIC 2.0 and only works for Vista. If you look at the date on the file, it's from April 10, 2008. I also own the Intel D865GBF motherboard and so far haven't found a SLIC 2.1 modded BIOS for it. If you look at the first post in the thread referenced above, you'll see:
"For SLP 2.1 mods see the list in the Windows 7 section. SLP 2.1 mods will work with Vista as well.
Then if you go to the 2.1 specific thread and search for that board, you'll get no results. Whoever made the modded BIOS in the thread above did not reveal what method he used or the information has been lost. If you do a full search on this site for D865GBF you'll find several attempts to mod this BIOS, but they all failed. So for now there is no BIOS for this particular board. I hope someone can prove me wrong on this.
I'll try them all. I just want to have a bootable DVD with all of the fikes on it. Not having any luck at all. Magic didn't work for me or Power ISO. That's where I'm at.
Thanks for posting
I do not know. I have superficial knowledge of the Intel flashers and bios, simply because they are largely proprietary. There is not a large demand for these to be figured out, and I have little interest also. Sorry....
The PCI mod is a good alternative....
Going to try this one I found here.
This bootcd works for me. I haven't tried to flash the bios yet as it's not my box and won't be going there til tomorrow. Put IFash and your modded bios in the Flash folder and delete the Asus files. Burn and your ready to go.
I wouldn't mind knowing if they work as well. I going to try this tomorrow nite possibly.
I little correction here. I only get the weird colors and the blank screen if I try to flash the BIOS from within the DOS GUI of the latest IFLASH tool. I was able to flash the BIOS from the command line using the /p parameter. However, it only works with unmodified BIOS files. Trying to flash a modified BIOS file still results in a reboot. This leads me to believe there's some kind of checksum that the modified BIOS files are missing. That's probably why they're getting rejected.
