    is there a program to check what slic is in the bios update, ive downloaded from laptop maker. i got a acer aspire 5715z been on their website and its asking which operating system ive got.it currently has vista but also shows on website windows 7 drivers and bios updates. but the bios update are both named the same with the same date. only difference is at top of screen where it asks me to input operating system. will it have both in depending which system it is installed from. thanks

    if you go strait to the bios without selecting the operating system there is no option to select one.
    the bios is for all operating systems.

    Marker (2.0) (GATEWASYSTEM ) (x1)
    Marker (2.0) (ACRSYSACRPRDCT) (x1)

    i seen toshiba and dell that do change slic.
    slic toolkit 3.2 can show u the slic after flash... also the date of bios says 2008.. not many (if any) had 2.1 slic in late 2008


    i modified a bios with slic 2.1 (in phoenixtool advanced setings, replace split table ids needs checked)

    rename without _SLIC

    u can flash ala recovery method if u rename it and put in usb, take power cord out. hold Fn Esc and plut in power.. now press power button.
    Recovery filenames are: ICL50HW.fd
