    Hello all!

    First, let me say thank you for all the good work with Bios-Mod! Nearly all my Dell Notebooks are running now with SLIC 2.1!

    Now my Latitude D610 is prepared for W7, but I cant find any modded Slic bios...

    pls help!



    BTW: I have a complete autounattend installation for W7 Ultimate from USB-Stick, having the german language pack AND SP1 integrated! Works fine, just added the function: wipe all partitions (if any) and make one "big" partition from the first disk.
    The USB-stick is for multi-vendor and installs the correct vendor theme to the notebook. Drop me a line, if you need more info!

    I want to flash the bios, but i don't have a usb floppydrive.

    Can you tell me how to do the job ?

    I can however try to make a usbstick bootable. (if i have any working disk from dos)
    Or are there other way's to fix this.

    Here the problem is a other HD installed, wich works quit instable because of the size. (primary partition made 80 Gb total discspace is 160 Gb, samsung HD160)

    What are the best stap's to make now. (this is the first time for me, you see)
    I want to let this work without any problem.

    You may sent PM or a mail to my personal adres.

    Hope to hear from you soon so i can make it work.
    Now i am running crazy on this one.

    Thank you alphawaves, will try that one.

    Leaves me, on the other hand, having no back up.
    What if it fail's ? then trow the laptop away is no option.

    Can i do it making a stick bootable en backup right there ?
    I'm not sure, and i dont want to mess things up.
    Having working 2 day's on this f*cking bitch.

    Runs stable aslong you don't write to the drive.
    Start defrag and we have a bsod.

    Or it might hangup the system so reboot after forcing shutdown is the only option.
    Going mad on this one, but ik will win.

    Thanks al lot in advance for all the help. Mostley i'm the one helping others.

    Dude go buy a USB floppy drive and a DOS formatted floppy disk. You can recover using the original Dell D610 HDR file and the Dell HDR recovery method.

    But your problem with the drive is that the normal D610 BIOS does not support 48-bit LBA. If and only if you have the D610 with integrated Intel graphics, you can use my Dell D610 A51 BIOS in my signature. It is well tested and I use it daily with my WD 320GB PATA hard drive. If you have a D610 with ATI graphics, then you're out of luck and can not use more than 128GB of the drive period (no matter if your C:\ partition is only 80GB...then your D:\ partition can only be ~48GB)...sorry I wasn't able to create a working BIOS.
