    Total newbie here,

    My current setup is a HP Pavilion Slimline
    Model s3100n
    PCB Asus M2NC51-AR
    PCB version 1.01
    Bios Type Award
    Bios SLIC wanting HP 2.1

    and after searching around, I think the closest I am able to find is this:

    hXXp://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5863-Award-amp-AMI-Bios-mod-requests.?p=175821&highlight=m2nc51-ar#post175821
    (Apparently my post count blocks link posting, so XX instead of tt)

    Are they compatible? How would I know?

    Great. Just realized the link is dead though so I guess I'm doing it myself now anyway. Another question: Does the method of modding a BIOS make any difference?

    Oh, well thank you, good sir!

    I flashed the modded BIOS, but after installing Win 7 Ultimate, it claims I need to activate still. I'm confused, did I do something wrong? I thought it was all automatic.

    Ahh, once again, thanks for the info. I'm trying hard to absorb all of this, but it's pretty in depth.
