    Hi, I flashed modified BIOS with SLIC 2.1 and now my laptop doesn't boot.
    I created CRISDISK on a floppy and tried "Fn + B" and "Win + B", but it doesn't work.

    Does anyone know the right keyboard combination for Samsung R60Plus laptops ?

    here is a lesson to all who wants flash there bios with modified strings .bottom line is dont do it for the sake of getting a free use of W7 perhaps a poll of error rate versus success rate should done .

    I've to second that!

    In case you try to flash a BIOS with an unsupported file (all of the modded BIOS's are NOT supported!) it's on own risk and no one else is responsible as you only.

    I had brick 2 MB's with modded BIOS's and I don't blame the Modder, I blame myself! Period!

    I'm just curious what are you doing in this forum mostly dedicated to bios modding stuff? Oh, by the way, isn't this your request : http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/91235?
    What happened? You failed to mod yours and now you walk around telling people that it's a such a bad idea? Don't be jealous my friend that people are getting what they want for free when you had to pay for your Technect Plus Subscription.
    No one here wants to hear "I told you it's bad idea... bla bla bla..." It' the easiest way and anyone can say this - instead try to actually help with advice or share some useful knowledge. If you can't then just don't say nothing.

    Thanks to all he guys who tried to help me, but the story seems to come to an end :(
    I went to samsung technical center and was really shocked by their answer: "Motherboard replacement needed. Cost - $ 230". And no, they do not replace the BIOS chip or program the BIOS somehow :( Only replace the whole motherboard.
    Yeah, I knew I took the risk flashing the BIOS, but I did not realize it would be so expensive to recover ((((

    Basically they are taking the mick. They can change stuff if they want, they just want to charge you the most amount of $$$ they can.

    You can hotflash your BIOS to recover it, but I don't know the exact procedure for your notebook. If you are unfamiliar with the concept, it basically means doing the following:-
    1) remove the BIOS chip from your laptop
    2) find another motherboard that is compatible with that chip, normally just a board that uses the same make of BIOS
    3) boot the other machine using its BIOS
    4) with the other machine on (this bit is scary), you pull its BIOS chip out with the power still on (it can be helpful to remove and refit to chip before you turn it on just to make sure its not too tight)
    5) fit your dead BIOS chip to the working other machine (power still on)
    6) force flash your laptop BIOS in the other machine (power still on)
    7) turn off, refit all BIOS chips to the correct motherboards, reboot and pray

    I have the samsung recovery DVD but it doesn't help.
    Crisdisk doesn't help too.

    I'm from Russia, so transportation cost to UK or US will be very high :(
    I visited another, non-authorised by Samsung service and they also said that only motherboard replacement can solve the problem because they can not program existing BIOS chip as it does not fit into their programming device :(

    BIOS repair

    Namchick, contact bios repair services they do embedded BIOS repair / recovery. I used them a few months ago, top notch service.

    Reign_Of_Freedom, "badbiosflash" does not do embedded BIOS repair. I found that out the hard way.

    Do you know how involved it is to replace a motherboard in a laptop? $230 is cheap when you take into account the cost of the motherboard and the labor. Question for the original poster, is there anything on that hard drive that should be deleted before sending it back to the shop? May want to slic it.
