    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..
