    I wonder If anyone can help? Hopefully Yen, 911 madic or Busyguy
    I have a Toshiba A135 S4467 with Phoenix Bios.
    I used a slic 2.1 modded by 911 medic it had been Tested as working when flashed through windows. I made a bootable CD confirmed the Rom in the Iso to have the same date as the mooded one. Flashed fine, but when I check with Slic dumb in vista it showed only 2.9 slic. I flashec back the my old Bios, downloaded a modded one by BusyGuy untested, Redid the ISo to include his mod, made a bootable cd reflashed again it took but Slic dum and Everest Utimate still show only 2.0
    I don't want to keep reflashing this thing is it possable that it is 2.1 but these programs don't see it in Vista or that my board just wont"t accept 2.1?
    Anybody have any clues? Thanks for any help ot advice..:(

    the first and easiest thing you might try is reset your bios to defaults, that said the next step, when you flash, if using winflash be sure the phlash.ini file has the lines
    at the top, when you run winphlash click on advanced and make sure clear cmos is checked and uncheck flash only if version is different and flash only if version is newer
    If using phlash16 have a look in the forums, I am sure you can find the right switches...
