    You need to uninstall any loader you have right now, restart windows, and then install and run the latest version of RW. In RW go to ACPI Table section, save all (ctrl+F2), and upload the AcpiTbls.rw file because that file is needed to mod your bios.

    Thanks Pecel !
    I have downloaded and run InsydeFlash.exe in folder (follow your instructions) but do not insert SLIC2.1 to BIOS ( Check by EVEREST Ultimate Edition and SLIC DumptoolKit V2.0)
    Pls, review the files you send me or step intruction.

    Best Regards,

    Alright, then you should flash the modded bios from DOS by using the /all switch, i.e: flas**t.exe KALG0206.fd /all. That should put the slic table into BIOS. By flashing that way, your DMI info will be erased. So before flashing you should go to your bios and take note of your serial number, uuid, model & manufacturer. Later after flashing you can put the information back by using this DOS utility. Usage:
    For example:
    dmi /wm Acer
    dmi /wp "Aspire 4736ZG"
    dmi /ws [your serial]
    dmi /wu [your uuid]

    Hope that helps.

    I did not include flas**t.exe in the file I gave you. It is in the original bios file, BIOS_Acer_2.06_A_A.zip.

    So the steps would be:

    1. Restart your computer, press F2 to go to your bios. Take notes some of the information there, especially:

    - Serial number
    - Product Name
    - Manufacturer Name
    - UUID

    All of the above information will be erased after you have flashed the modded bios. You can use Everest to copy the value of serial number and uuid if you like.

    2a. From the original bios file, BIOS_Acer_2.06_A_A.zip, extract only the dos flash utility only, flas**t.exe.

    2b. From the file I gave you, Acer_4736ZG_V2.06_SLIC_2.1.rar, extract only the modded bios file, KALG0206.FD.

    2c. From the file Insyde bios dmi.zip, extract only dmi.exe.

    3. Copy those three files to bootable usb flash disk / cd DOS that you have.

    4. Restart the computer, boot from the usb fd/cd above

    5. Save your original bios by typing flas**t backup.fd /8. Make sure if it is already saved, type dir.

    6. Flash the modded bios, type: flas**t kalg0206.fd /all. After the flashing process has finished and the computer has restarted, press F2 to go to bios screen, you will see the information above is gone.

    7. Go to dos again by booting from fd/cd, from the dos prompt type for example:
    dmi /wm Acer
    dmi /wp "Aspire 4736ZG"
    dmi /ws [your serial]
    dmi /wu [your uuid without "-"]

    8. Restart the computer, press F2 to go bios screen, check if the DMI information has been written correctly.

    Enjoy your new bios :)

    You are welcome :)

    In case you haven't already know how to create bootable dos usb, get modded HP USB Format by DavidXXW here. Choose FAT filesystem, check a DOS startup disk, internal MS-DOS system, then click the start button.

    You can use a usb flash disk or an unused SD card that you have lying around and put it in your acer's internal card reader. Copy those three files that I mentioned above to it and restart the notebook. At startup, press F12 to choose boot device (must be enabled first in bios), and choose to boot from your usb disk or memory card. That's all.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    It is true that bios modding is a very risky. However, in your case, it is too late to be afraid as you have already flashed the modded bios succesfully and your computer is still alive ;) The difference between the original bios and the modded one is not only 374 bytes of the slic table part, but whopping 597,493 bytes if you compare them using hex editor. Your computer would be already dead by now if the mod was not done corretly.

    So I'd say there is no risk now and I'm sure it will work. But then again, it's your call :)
