    Thanks for the report; it is definitely a bug which is present in v1.52 too.

    I think andyp should notice that as it is discussed in here.

    Hello,
    Sorry in advance if my question has already been replied, but I did not read all the 115 pages :p

    My problem concerns the main module shrink.
    I've read that note:
    Note - sometimes 0+2 will fail as the main module cannot be shrunk enough to compensate for the increase in ACPITBL size, best bet is SSV3 or OEM7 with ACPITBL at end.

    But when I load my BIOS (MS-7295 for NEC VL-360 v.148) I just can't choose SSV3 or OEM7, those options are grayed out.
    I tried to tweak the advanced options, the hack succeeds and creates a working BIOS, but it's not valid for activation.
    However I had some success with an older BIOS version. It's more for my personal culture and eventually to help other people that I'm asking.

    Many thanks for your help.
    Gilles

    It already contains NEC SLIC 2.0. So choose 'Yes' for the first prompt, select 'Other' from the manufacturer list & mod using Dynamic method.
