    Hi Members,

    I already invested an bunch of time to get SLIC into the BIOS of my Lenovo G780. I already posted in a german forum with no success till now.

    The problems:
    - there is no BIOS found on the Lenovo Site
    - backing up the BIOS is possible, put some data will be missing then, because it's Phoenix BIOS (I think)
    - using a marker doesn't function: When I use setmarker.bat oder clrmarker.bat i got "bad command" (I used SLP Marker Update Utility recommended by a friend)

    Is there any chance to get that SLIC workin'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Can you flash the BIOS with the flashrom utility? Or UniFlash?

    Can you please upload the backup BIOS to somewhere so that I may take a look at it?

    (OP)
    I'll do that today. I can't flash because I didn't have a BIOS file.

    Edit: By using the command "MARKER.EXE /SETMARK=SLP2MARK.BIN" i got that stuff working.

    OK, but where I can get the marker for G780? Or is there a universal marker?

    :confused:

    Edit: I used the "Lenovo_G470 G560 G570 Marker" and it works for me.

    Hi,
    can i read/backup the Bios from the G780 with "Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0" so that is complete?
    I do so, have no a file "LENOVO-5ECN36WW(V3.02).rom" with about 4608kb ?
    Can i Modify (Whitelist) this file and pull back?
