    Do we just need the slp name in the txt file or the numbers as well?
    Examples:
    Asus.txt with ASUS_FLASH
    Dell.txt with Dell Computer
    HP.txt with Hewlett
    or the whole codes like 'f000','e840','0010','Dell Computer' in the txt file for slp?

    Just the text..The numbers are for our reference..Where the strings live..The slp strings will be put to the $ODB$ string which is mapped to 000FE840. Any slp that is valid at that range will work. Put the narrower ranges first, and you can have multiple strings..ex. Dell ComputerASUS_FLASHHewlett_packard

    So that will make a multi-branded SLP bios nice:D
    I understood what the hex value was the linked page and info wasn't as clear on what to put in the txt file.
    Thanks!

    1. When performing a mod do I have to select the SLP file or is the SLICthat is only needed?

    2. I did a mod on my P5Q Deluxe BIOS using the SSV3 method and the status was successful. I also did a Dynamic method and it also was successful. Does that mean the Dynamic method works now?

    3. Do I need to select Use MMTool when inserting the SLIC or is this for something else?

    1. you use the slic for vista, and the slp string for xp activate. whichever you want..both if you want.

    2.Dynamic mod was working before, but it is still theory as to which boards it works with AFAIK..

    3. This is for something else. If you do not know bios structure for ami, or how to manually mod a bios..do not use. This allows a bit more control for pseudo-manual mods..or adding additional modules, etc.

    For SSV3 my tool is pretty much the same as the other tool. Mine makes a few more changes to all the ACPI tables, to be more compliant with the latest ACPI specs. However I am aware of no cases where this actually causes a problem. It also gives you the option of using MMTool - see post above.
