    Hi guys!

    I try to add SLIC in my B550 Aorus Pro V2 bios with Phoenixtool v 2.73

    After start with "module" method I got error "Insufficient space to manipulate modules"

    Neither "dynamic" nor "code" methods non working too. "No complete SLIC found" warning for "dynamic" and "Unable to add SLIC code" for "code".

    I tried with 3 different latest versions of BIOS (F15c|F15a|F14), but without success. Same errors|warnings.

    Any advice? Other tools, advanced settings, e.t.c.?

    Your bios has no (dummy-) slic table, so "Dynamic" can't work; it will only update existing table(s). Only way is "Module", adding OA2-module and pubkey and marker.

    The bios has not enough empty room in 2 images, a manual mod could perhaps solve it.

    But why Windows 7 for such a new mobo? It is not fully compatible and for upgrading to 10 or 11 better methods exist.

    What other modern methods exists?
    I'm ancient mammoth and really don`t know it. :)

    I always use modded bios to one time load Win7 and upgrade it to next version of Win. After that I can always install Win 10 without problems on that machine.
    Or, as variant, use direct install of modern version WinServer on my home server (Well, I prefer linux, but use WinServer as reserve solution).

    Ideal solution for me - one time job to get almost official Windows with resistance to future reinstall OS.

    UPD. New idea...
    Swap motherboards between my current home server (Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi with SLIC) and my new game machine (Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro V2 without SLIC)

    I can live without WinServer on my main machine (Fedora Linux with tens CentOS/AlmaLinux guests). But can not live without GameLoaderOS on my game machine :D

    Similar mainboards (B550 Plus) were modded with module-insertion, i guess it had OOB enough space.

    You should request for a mod in the right topic.

    Windows 10 can be permanent activated with "digital license", which can be triggered by Microsoft Activation Script.
