    Hey guys so I have a win 7 ultimate X64 up and actiavted with the win7 loader. Everything is working fine. My question is, well first some info. I have 0 knowledge of bios modding. I found my bios on this site that has been modded so I can probable figure out how to flash it and update it to this bios. So on to my question as far as bios modding goes is all it is really is just flashing the updated bios and thats it? or is there other things I need to do. Also would it be a better option to just wait a few days until the 22 and see if my loader is suffecient. Thanks :p I have an Asus P5N-D by the way. So as far as I see it all I need to do is flash my bios with that file since he already did all the modding hard work ect... right?
    I downloaded

    Asus P5N-D ver 1101

    Modded by Michel
    Tested by tanderson001

    SLP: Dell System
    SLIC v2.1: Dell

    Method: pubkey

    Note: Use EZ-Flash to flash (Alt-F2 during post or in bios setup)

    Flashing the BIOS is pretty easy. I've done it atleast 30 times and haven't bricked a mobo.

    Make sure you have a backup of the original BIOS that came with your mobo. Have it on a separate USB stick or bootable media or something. Be patient, sometimes flashing might take longer than usual. Don't dare turn off your PC if you think it froze or something especially if your flashing within Windows. Leave it alone and fight the urge to power down :eek:

    Oh and research to see if your mobo has an intergrated BIOS backup. Most have built in ways to restore the BIOS in case of emergency.

    I would recommend to flash your BIOS through DOS. NOT within Windows.

    Okay check this post http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/2105 In the first line you can see the HP tool for a USB stick and the minidos files, to make your USB stick bootable. Also for recovery option if something goes wrong.

    Thank you very very much. That link was what I needed. I am still trying to decide if I want to flash the bios or stay with my loader from daz.

    Well you could use the loader from Daz. If all fails in a couple of days just uninstall the loader and flash your bios with the modded one. Just my 2 cents.

    If you request a personnal modded bios and supply the modder with an RWreport, then the modded bios will surely work. Flashing will be a 5 minute job, then your good to go...

    Flashing a modded bios thats not personnaly modded for your rig, can cause trouble in some cases. It's allways best to let your bios be modded personnaly for you.

    Despite that, it's still the best way to get permanently activated...
