    Do you have a newer link to download the D610 A51 SLIC BIOS? SendSpace says it's not available.

    @tghoang Do you have an updated link for the D610 bios? The link you provide at page 8 is no longer working-

    @tghoang - Thank you for your work on the D610 BIOS mod. The link on page 8 is not working, can you please provide an alternate link? I would be more than happy to host it on my server for at least a year if you need that... just let me know if that is okay and I can provide the URL once you provide the BIOS file.

    *resurrects dead thread*

    Can I use this BIOS for a Precision M20 considering it's D610 based?

    This is difficult to say because the originals are different

    Not directly. We'd have to hack the header so it flashes correctly.

    We can only attempt at making a cross-flash BIOS if your M20 has integrated Intel graphics? IIRC, the Precision M20 only comes with ATI Mobility FireGL V3100.

    I don't have a M20 yet, but i'll keep it in mind when I do.

    These old laptops are really slow and limited to 2GB RAM, so I wouldn't recommend you go out and purchase one.

    Curios, why did you crossflash the D800 onto your M60? It appears that Dell kept the M60 A09 BIOS updated with the same fixes/changes as the D800 A13.

    M60 A09 == D800 A13
    M60 A08 == D800 A12
    M60 A07 == D800 A11
    etc.

    Really? So the M60 A09 BIOS is identical to the D800 A13 BIOS? Interesting, so there's no point in flashing the A13 D800 BIOS even though it should be newer.

    99% sure the BIOS are identical aside from the model number strings. Dell did this a lot with their Latitude D8xx and Precisions M6x[xx] back in the day.

    Hardware-wise they offered slightly different video cards, but the BIOS would contain all the VBIOS Option ROMs.

    Can confirm, i'm running the A13 Latitude C840 BIOS on my M50. It does show up properly as Precision M50 though.
