Hi all...Its been a little while since i have been on..But i have a new toy and with it a new little project. I realise this question connects the XP to the Vista threads but i did not know where to put it really... Hope here is OK.. My Toshiba laptop has gone tits up..The screen is well buggered,does not come on at all but luckily i have got it to work with the VGA connected to my TV..Wow 40" windows....i digress. My little project is to flash this BIOS to add Vista SLIC. I did not want to just come out and ask for this but i want to be able to find out to do it my self. The laptop came with XP Home and has an original proper working code...wu hoo.. So i then decided to make me an XP Home OEM disc...obtaining XP Home as i speak.well type. So.... How do i find out my laptops BIOS info ? How do i extract this info ? How do i get to the BIOS SLPI ( Windows XP ) How do i alter the BIOS to add SLIC ( Windows Vista) ( need to ask on a Vista thread ) Hope this all makes sence.. ohhh my nice new shiney laptop is a Sony Vaio with Vista home premium...nice... please help and piont me in the right direction.. cheers..
