    Hi all,

    Endless trouble with my gigabyte GA 7n400 pro 2 rev1, so luckily I've been given a GA7n400 Pro 2 Rev2 mobo,
    and I have managed to find here:
    Gigabyte_GA-7N400_Pro2_(rev2.x)_FK_ASUS_SLIC_2.1.rar
    Gigabyte_GA-7N400_Pro2_(rev2.x)_FK_DELL_SLIC_2.1.rar
    Gigabyte_GA-7N400_Pro2_(Rev_2.0)_FK_Gigabyte_SLIC_2.1_SSV3.rar

    I am also in luck due to a friend requiring an re installation on he's dell so i also have a full proper copy of win7 home premium,
    So i suppose the dell slic is the obvious choice to make life easy, but i just wondered if anyone can tell me what the SSV3 version is?.
    Probably a real noob question to most here but it's got me stumped. I've done many slic upgrades with the help of many of the people here, but I just wondered would the SSV3 be of better use than the others.

    Thanks chaps for any advice....

    SSv3 was used in most all recent gigabyte bios due to the ineffectiveness of the other mods. SSv1 orISA used to be a gimme, then some code changes and use of the sensitive modules made the SSv3 mod necessary. The mod was a bit more difficult due to much resizing of modules necessary to keep the offsets the same in the modified modules, and the mainbios module holds the SLIC code. with the automation by Andy, the SSv3 is much less troublesome, but some complaints have been shown by individuals with high RAM (6GB and up); this is not a problem with the boards you have...:rolleyes:

    An ISA mod should work with these boards, but if using the mod tool, any that can be realized with its use is fine. I would use the Gigabyte SLIC for continuity, and changing the cert and serial is simple; either in the DVD or after install.

    In the end, you will have to do what is good for you, but any mod should work here, no sensitive modules I can remember..

    Thanks for the reply 911medic, I think i will stick with the ssv3, I have already d/l the Gigabyte Ultimate.rar OEM sources folder.

    Got hold of these last night:
    Windows 7 x86 All Versions English

    http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msvista/pub/X15-79643/Win7-P-Retail-en-us-x86.exe

    http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msvista/pub/X15-79643/setup1.box

    http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msvista/pub/X15-79643/setup2.box

    will try and follow the instructions from here http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...nks-English-Spanish-German-French-X86-amp-X64

    but not to sure if this will work under xp pro, :-
    oscdimg.exe -bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -u2 -h -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\expandedSetup\ C:\Win7.iso

    Once this is done i suppose all i need to do is to add the gigabyte $oem$ folder to ????
    Oh dear, I seem to have found a small problem, most of my other dvd's that have $oem$ folders do not have a ei.cfg file, or a setup folder, system32 folder, web folder, csup.txt file or "obvious one here" gigabyte_version file.

    Could anyone please explain where I would need to place these once I have opened the iso within poweriso.

    many many thanks to all you guys that help us noobs out....
