    No problem!

    Try this and it works! Dell is tricky!

    Try again:
    Load your original bios.
    Manufacturer: Other
    Load AcpiTbls_before.rw
    Load again Dell SLIC

    -At advanced options tick : replace split table IDs

    It should work now!

    Note for Andy: The tool should replace the split table Id when found at rwe (RSDT) :).

    Enigma1234's problem is a tool's issue. I already have made a suggestion to improve it to andyp and have written a solution to Enigma1234 for now.

    The Toshiba SLIC and FOUNDER is most compressible and therefore it works if there is less space to replace a part of a existing SLIC!
    The tool uses a very safe method to mod. Therefore it keeps the offsets of the modules. The disadvantage could be 'unable to reintegrate' problems.
    If no SLIC would fit at all, you can change the mod method to ssv2. SSv2 renames the original SLIC and inserts a complete new one, whereas dynamic replaces the existing one.

    So if you encounter 'unable to reintegrate' problems, try for Toshiba SLICs / FOUNDER and if it isn't working switch over to ssv2.

    At best is to ask here if you are unsure about something. I'll support the tool until the people are familiar with it. Also we will benefit from the posts here to make the tool more intelligent to chose the right settings more and more automated.

    Always try first the settings the tool suggests by itself! And choose the same SLIC the bios has before. E.g. if it's FSC 2.0 then mod with FSC2.1 If it's a Dell bios, mod with Dell SLIC..only if you encounter problems start to play...carefully!

    Yes I know. It's the OEMID of the RSD PTR (RootSystemDescriptionPointer).
    It doesn't matter.

    I bet shakey's mod will work! It's the same as mine!

    Yen, that is very odd.

    Could you send me the SLIC'd BIOS anyway, since it is nto working here?

    Status reports "Phoenix BIOS (new style)".
    I am running as admin, Vista, UAC disabled.

    Do we have same files? CRC32:
    30d9f34.fd: DFB719E6
    PhoenixTool: 1AED3CEF

    Perhaps I am running some weird version?

    I have tried to mod on three different machines (multiple times on each machine): 700m laptop with Vista, ep45+Q8200 with Win7, and intel mobo+p4 2.8G with WinXP. For every machine, I downloaded phoenixtool v1.0 zip from OP's link, cert file also from OP's link, the ("before") rw everything report from my link on p11, original bios file from my link on skydrive. And every single time, the log gave me "RSDT header NOT found". I have no idea why all these files together worked on Yen and Shakey's machine but not any of mine. I assumed the files are all the same since we are downloading them from the same places.:confused:

    Thanks again so much for everyone! I did get the bios I want already, although it is not made by myself!:D
