    I clicked it and it worked, but I don't know how to extract it from the exe -writerom I think maybe. Try the link again, if it still won't work I'll grab it and up it to rapid share or something for you. :)

    EDIT: I managed to extract the files from the exe. It was everything needed for and including Winphlash, but no rom files! :eek:

    1. Use PE Explorer to edit A08.exe
    2. Save MY_ROM_166_0 or MY_ROM_166_1028 as .res
    3. rename .res to .rar and you'll get the flashabl.rom after extraction

    1. Open PE Explorer
    2. Open A08.exe
    3. Click Resource Viewer/Editor
    4. Expand MY_ROM_166
    5. Save 0 or 1028 as MY_ROM_166_*.res
    6. ren MY_ROM_166_*.res to MY_ROM_166_*.rar
    7. Decompress MY_ROM_166_*.rar
    8. MY_ROM_166_*\flashabl.rom will show up

    already figured out what you meant buddy. not sure what you meant by editing though since just open the resource viewer. I thought you were using the dissassembler or something.

    I don't need a SLIC added, I was just trying to extract the SLIC since sarcoptic reported it as having a 2.1 SLIC in it. Just trying to add it to the collection if it is not already in the collection....

    it's an phoenix bios,you can use pbe to extract some parts of the rom.If you search some key words,you'll find the pubkey and marker of the slic.it's a DELL QA09 SLIC,we have it already.

    Think it's got something to do with Locale & Codepage used on your system, it's part of the function that calculates the CRC32 hash. i can attach a version without this functionality if you like?

    Just a note, the Alienware cert in the Vista section wont work with this slic.

    So does this mean not all 2.1 slic are backwards compatible with 2.0?

    That is correct.
    The SLIC pubkey must match the certificate.
    Some of the new SLIC 2.1 markers have different pubkeys.

    Thanks for the information.

    Yen mod my hp bios from original HP 2.0 to 2.1. My vista is still activated.

    Maybe this is one example that backward compatible works?

    Again - correct ;)
    It has the same pubkey so the certificate matches.
