    I'm using 2 video cards in SLI mode. Before Flashing SLI mode was enabled. But after flashing BIOS with moded BIOS the SLI is inactive and I cannot enable it (the option to enable SLI has disapierd). Mod works, windows activates, but How to return SLI. Flashing with another BIOS ROM doesn't help, SLIC stays after flashing.

    The entire slic stays or just the id?

    When flashing with new bios rom do you mean from manufactuerer (asus)?

    After readind the specs. on your board. This is U(EFI) = Unified Extensible Firmware Interface not BIOS = Basic Input Output System. This means who ever modded your bios must need to know the ins and outs of U(EFI) not only to insert the slic 2.1 but also be able to repair what has been missed. There are people on this forum who have the skills you need however to word your post differenly like " Problems with U(EFI) mod attempt" or something like that. Post back with any progress.

    Read here and here this will give info on recovery as well as replacing existing slip 2.1. Also post your request in this format.

    -Manufacturer:
    -Motherboard Model:
    -Bios revision:
    -Bios Type: Phoenix BIOS
    -Bios Download Link:
    -RW Everything Report Download Link:


    For RW-Everything, see: here

    Try to give a detailed description of how you got to where you are but the RW-everything file is the most important in getting the help you request.

    Post back with any progress or results

    Sorry, I missed this:

    Also here you say
    From what I understand many have made the point to say that before flashing use default settings in bios

    So post your RW-everything file as per the link I provided and a link to "Bios Download Link:" and I am sure someone will get to you soon.

    Just download 7z and right click on your rw-everything file choose 7-zip and left click on addto "rw-everything.7z". This will create a file that you can upload by attachment. you must be in advanced mode to see the attachment icon.

    With the link to the Asus bios just go there. Cut the URL from your browser paste in notepad and then copy and paste in your post. That's how I had to do it at first.

    Wish you the best and Happy New Year

    You probably just need to add an SLI entry in the DSDT with the Phoenix Tool (in Advanced Settings) to get that SLI setup working again.

    yah mod was probably made with older tool.
    didnt the newer 1.94 tool fix the SLI issue also some issue with asus ?

    v1.93

    ADD: Module method is now default
    ADD: SLP Support (4C...) module now added for all module method mods if not present (irrespective of manufacturer)
    ADD: ALASKAAMI OEM/Table ID now always changed even if no RW report

    FIX: SLIC string in nVidia SLI certificate in DSDT could be altered in error

    v1.94

    ADD: ASUS DMI method (thanks qtm)

    FIX: Split OEM/Table ID not identified in Gigabyte EFI

    Windows activates, but SLI doesn't works. How make SLI work on SLIC?
    I've been talking with others guys and they recommended to replace mother board, because SLI will not work with this SLICed motherboard((

    I already done this (add an SLI entry in the DSDT) mod for dval - SLI not works.
