    I have a Sager 5125, based on the Clevo B5100M chassis. I downloaded the latest Phoenixmodtool and it says it successfully modded the bios I extracted with winphlash. I take that modded bios and it hangs when the flash utility reaches the "check flash memory type", specifically CallDeviceFunction IpFlashEnable. I suspect it is hanging on this section for Winphlash as well. Any ideas?

    I also have the same exact problem

    My Notebook is a local Singapore Brand and the website don't have any bios download.
    So i backup the bios using WinPflash from IBM Thinkcentre A55.

    Backup can be done without problem.
    Get ACPItbl.rw using ReadWrite 1.4
    Create a SLIC BIOS done.

    But now i cannot flash back to the bios since the vendor of this stupid notebook never give a link for bios update.

    Anybody can help ?
