    I have an ASUS P5N73-AM Mobo which I am using to build a new system for my son but I am having trouble trying to add an HP SLIC to the Award BIOS. I have downloaded the latest BIOS (0602.bin) from: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    In Win 7:
    I unzipped it and tried to mod it with an HP SLIC using Andyp's Award tool 1.37 but after loading the 0602.bin file I immediately received a "FAILED" notice. I tried again using Awardtool 1.29 but again it failed.
    I then downloaded the 0502.bin file and tried to mod thar but just got the same results.
    Next I re-downloaded Awardtool 1.37 and tried again and still got the same results

    In XP Pro SP3:
    I then rebooted into XP Pro (I am dual booted) and tried doing everything again but got the same results.
    I am now baffled since I successfully modded my own BIOS an Asus M4A78 Pro with the Awardtool 1.29 without problem

    I know that there is an ASUS modded SLIC for this Mobo but I particularly want an HP SLIC since I am building the system into a beautiful HP case and I would like to have everything matching.
    Can one of you kind gentlemen/ladies help me please?

    Thanks for your reply.
    I was aware of the 0501 mod but it has an Asus SLIC and I particularly want an HP SLIC for a couple of reasons;
    I have an HP Win 7Ult disk and a lovely HP case and monitor so it would be nice to have the cert, logo and licence all matching hence my request
    regards

    Since you Created a new thread, Instead of Making a Proper Request in the Appropriate Request Thread,
    I assumed you were going to mod this yourself.
    That's why I linked to a working mod, so you could use the same method to make yours with an HP SLIC.

    If you want someone else to do this for you, Make a Proper Request in the Proper thread.

    Thanks for your help I have now solved the problem.
    I had stupidly forgotten that the award tool must be run on the desktop or root for it to work. Anyway moved the tool and BINGO !! a modded BIOS that works.
