    Ok I made my own bios last time you can see the original thread here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/18737-Msi-p55-gd85

    Everything worked just fine. Well there was a new BIOS released recently so I tried creating my own again by following the instructions in the first thread. Well after I flashed i was no longer valid. I tried to look at the ACPI talbe to view the SLIC but they are missing from the new bios. I used both Everest and RW/everything. So I redid the previous bios again and everything works again. What am i missing? I did notice that the new bios has a SLIC 2.1 table already loaded in it. But after creating my BIOS I did verify and everything looked alright it's just missing the whole slic table. Does this have something to do with the "Dynamic Method" should I use something else? Can anyone tell me what is wrong with it? Thanks for any help.:)

    This is my bios link:

    If the New Version already has Slic 2.1 just Flash it.
    No Mod should be needed.

    But doesn't it has to match the SLIC for example when you insert a DELL one?

    When I load it up it say it has a slic 2.1 table with a ( itsumiadax ) ? This is before I touch it. Wouldn't I have to add a Dell one to it so it could match the XMS file?

    Do an SSV2 Mod.
    I just did it with DELL SLIC and completed successfully so it should work.

    So Instead of dynamic just select SSV2 correct. The weird part is I can leave it at dynamic and insert the SLIC just fine. I can even verify it and it matches correctly. It just seems like the slic is gone when I flash. When I verify the bios after doing dynamic it also shows SSV2 selected even though I left it on dynamic. But you think that I just need to force the SSV2 then?
