    Here is a link to the bios I modded for my Gateway P-6831FX with the Phoenix Godzilla Bios 94.28. I've also included Gateway's official files that came with the bios to flash it, minus the readme. If you want the original files, you can get them at: ftp://esupport:vImvF88@ftp.gateway.com/pub/hardware_support/drivers/win_vista/bios/9539578.exe

    I used the LENOVO [LENOVOTC-5H-MSFT]2.1.BIN = D980E726 SLIC and the old Lenovo-TC-2P.XRM-MS cert from Vista.

    I've been trying to edit the BIOS for the 7811 / 7805u FX laptops (the next model up). I've been able to successfully edit a .ROM file to include SLIC 2.1 but not the .WPH version. Problem is you can't flash a .ROM file.

    How did you load and edit the .WPH BIOS file as I get an invalid size error in PBE?

    Also do you know there is a newer version of BIOS for 6831 FX and similar models:

    Gateway FX 94.31 BIOS

    This is the BIOS I've been trying to edit (would love some assistance with the WPH file):

    Hm. Gives me the same error. You'll probably have to wait for Yen or the new tool as that's beyond my scope already. They may have changed something with the way .wph is assembled that the PBE can't open it.

    I knew about the 94.31, but wanted the official one from Gateway's site. I just checked the 94.31 you posted and it also gives me the same invalid length error.

    Sorry I couldn't help you more than that.

    @kt3x

    No, sorry, I said in my original post that I wouldn't take bios mod requests. iaTa asked for help with his, not a mod request. I'm more inclined to help someone learn than to do them for others. The request thread will be opened this weekend so you can probably ask there then.

    @studio

    I couldn't find an SLIC table inside that bios. I'm not sure how to add one into it. You're better off asking a more experienced modder like Yen or someone in the HP thread.

    I've edited all versions of the 9C.10.00 and 9C.17.00 BIOS releases for the Gateway P-7805u FX / P-7811 FX and uploaded them here.

    The RAR archive includes the following:

    1) 9C.10.00 .ROM file, .WPH file, 32 and 64 bit Winflasher

    2) 9C.17.00 .ROM file, .WPH file, 32 and 64 bit Winflasher

    All files have been updated to SLIC v2.1.

    The 9C.17.00 .WPH and Winflasher files are based on 9C.10.00 versions and may produce unexpected results.

    Let me know how you get on.

    I see it, but I don't know how to mod it in there.

    @Steve79

    I don't know how to mod yours either, as it's in the same spot as studio's in the bioscod1.rom

    No idea how to edit those, only those in the ACPI.roms Sorry.
