Could you post and screeshot please?
This is exciting....I'm very curious if the direct edit method will work at 'double' SLIC bioses....
No, but the module that contains the SLIC table (pubkey and marker) could have a checksum.....therefore to disassemble rompaq and figure how to calculate valid sums would be great....

No, I mean 2.0
Tried and tested on a HP530 which did have slic 2.0
The entry in the RSDT is a bit odd, SLIC_Dump tool reports the entry as "HP 30D5" but it activated non the less!
Well done Hotpepper - have a virtual beer or 2 on me.
Too bad, I was afraid of. HPQFlash DOES NOT update the SLIC at bioses containing 2 occurrences of marker....last chance is to patch rompaq or to correct the sums...
so I think we figured out how to update a HP BIOS with just one SLIC marker in it.
Next level is how to do that with a BIOS that has 2 markers in it.
Absolutely right, I hope mutante can figure something about the sums, disassenbling / patch rompaq...
HPQ-flash doesn't update....hmmm are there some settings to change...or switches--hpq flash don't start at my PC.....
Sorry I need the entire reportfile....something is strange to me....it should NOT activate...thanks again...need to know about XSDT table..
No problem, here it is.
Ah yes.....if acpi revision = 2.0 and XSDT OEMIDs are matching to SLIC (I guess so) then RSDT OEMIDs could be different.....OK...rw-everything doesn't dump the XSDT for some reason....back to HP...thanks for the report...
To be perfectly honest i am just happy that the method seems to work, i just hope it leads to an easier method for those not happy with doing this.
Thanks to all you bios experts.
Can anybody tell me which is the message rompaq prints when fail?
rompaq error message:
