    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. You can put more than one SLP in the text file ie. a file containing

    ASUS_FLASHEMACHINESGIGABYTEIBM CORPORATION

    is fine and will be inserted (the prog checks there is space) and will work with the relevant OEMBIOS files for Asus, Gateway, Gigabyte and IBM respectively.

    Do you mean inserting in an area other than after the $ODB$ string?

    I was looking at the MSI one - at FFF70h - which is always after the (C) 2000 area - however in every BIOS I have looked at, including MSI ones, there appears to be code there.

    Thanks again Andyp & 911medic!

    Tried v0.9991 & slic patched fine.
    The G31M3 MS-7528 patches fine with both slic & slp...
    Great work!

    New version

    v0.9992

    ADD: Ability to insert SSV3 SLIC at an adjusted address (for the odd ASUS eeePC BIOS)
    ADD: Option to specify the table name replacement for existing SLIC tables

    FIX: SSV2 method fails to adjust the size of the 1B module in one BIOS (also ASUS eeePC)

    I have tested having the SSV3 SLIC table at a different address (I put it only 180h bytes before the AMIBIOS string) on an ASUS P5K and it worked fine.

    I hope it is pretty much feature complete and bug free.

    Note - my wife just had our first child so I may not update as frequently! If you do find any problems then PM me and I will try to check and fix when I can!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    You can put "Tektronix" after,

    'F000','E840','','Tektronix' = 'F000','E840','104','Tektronix'

    If not specified, range has a value of 104

    sorry about that i just assumed it was still 3.19, you are right v 3.22

    when i use the SSV2 method the 1B model matches exactly, but when i use the SSV3 method the 1B model location stays the same but there is size difference.
    which one would you try first?
    thanks andy

    Use the SSv2 first. The biostars are a bit fussy sometimes with SSv3.
    Make it like MSI.
