    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this bios file cannot be modified. This is DELL Phoenix bios file and to modify it means you need to have a slic 2.0 already existing in the bios file. This is pre-vista and as a result there is no slic 2.0 in it....I am afraid you will have to use a loader though loaders do not work well with windows 7 WAT (Windows Activation Technology) technology because WAT finds loaders and renders them to be incapable of using and thus windows 7 will shut down...sorry.

    Thank you very much Busykid508. I do appreciate your help. Well , looks like a bit of bad news however better than spending days trying to mod my bios and in the end finding out it will not work.

    If I were to purchase a full licenced copy of Windows 7 ultimate, since it is not a Oem version , it should work on my Dell Demensions XPS Gen 2??
    Other choice is to try loader.
    Thanks again.
