Guys, would somebody please help me here? I am really trying to understand how this SLIC and SLP modding works. With the help of tutorials in this forum I was able to manually upgrade my ACER laptop to Vi$ta Ultim ate. I have read all the tutorials, but I am still struggling to understand some options in the AMI SLIC Mod v1.00 RC10 though. I am experimenting with modding the BIOS for ASRock X48TurboTwins mobo by adding both SLP and SLIC mods. (AMIBIOS core version 0800) When I use AMI SLIC Mod v1.00 RC10 than the only option that works is SSV2. The other methods using the MMtool would freeze the application. Anyway, I am very curious about some options in the SLIC tool. Namely the “Always shrink 1B module” option and the “Use extra space to shrink” option. When do I need to use those? And if I tick them unnecessarily, will it do any harm to the resulting BIOS file and consequently to the mobo? I am also a little concerned about this part of the log after I modded the BIOS: Why was the “Existing SLIC in 1B” deleted? Why did it take 7 steps to correct the 1B module? And what does this mean :”There are unlinked blocks in module 80h”? Should I be concerned about unlinked blocks? Should I be concerned about anything in that log if it says “SLIC performed successfully” in the end at all? I also used the SLIC TOOL3 FOR OEM VISTA Ver20080419 and that didn't give me any output to be paranoid about. Only two green squares and a popup about job done. And my last question, do I need to use any switches when updating BIOS with a modded file? I have successfully updated one mobo without switches, but that was just because I didn't know I could use any. I certainly want to preserve the recovery boot part.
