    So I have a bios that is quite old and I can't find the original for with SLIC 2.0 modded in, but I wanted to mod it with 2.1. Is that possible?

    The Model is a HP m9402f I know the bios used to be on the manufacturer website a few years ago, but isn't anymore. The PC runs pretty great with win10 I was just hoping that maybe the new bios would resolve the issue I've been having with the PC waking up from sleep. So basically this PC is on 5.14, but I found the 5.17 bios on some other forums. They are modded with SLIC 2.0 using the ISA method already, but the version that I am on has SLIC 2.1, because I modded them using the Award tool created by andy. Now I want to update the updated version from SLIC 2.0 to 2.1 so that I don't have to re-licence it for Win10. The Mobo is a Narra3 MCP61P.

    use cbrom32.exe to remove "ISA ROM" module (iSLIC.BIN) from v.5.17 bios :
    Code:
    cbrom32 BIOS517.ROM /ISA Release
    then modify bios (e.g.BIOS517.ROM) with awardtool 1.53 to add SLIC2.1 (use ISA method and proper HP 2.1 SLIC - HPQOEMSLIC-WKS or HPQOEMSLIC-MPC or HPQOEMSLIC-CPC or HPQOEMSLIC-BPC)
