    I have aspire 5050 which uses Phenix bios v1.3315. I found this here already modded with the slic2.1

    However there is another problem with this bios that only shows up in linux. It is about the TJ85 value in the PSHR Method (in the DSDT Table). Actually there is a typo, done when adding this, which windows manages to bypass without problems.

    I managed to recompile the asl with the intel asl, the asl compiler from microsoft gives errors (tried all v.1 v.2 v3). The problem is that i cannot recompile the bios. I tried PBE 2100, 2201, 2213 and they managed just to decompile the whp file (with the usual 4 errors). At the end I get "ROMEXEC not found" and therefore I cannot edit anything.

    So how was this slic mode done? Which programs were used? Is this a pure hex editing? Can someone help me with this?

    Ok, I found it. It's hex editing and it's not trivial. Thanks to Yen I have my new (repaired) DSDT back in my bios.

    Don't expect an answer this thread is almost three years old.

    Request a bios mod, at the time the mod in question was probably done manually since then AndyP has developed bios modding tools.
