    Hi all.

    Well i was messing earlier with a genuine Toshiba BIOS .rom file.
    My mates wants help adding SLIC 2.1 to his lappy.

    I used the Pheonix Tool 1.84 to do this. And i have a couple of questions.

    The tool kept throwing up errors saying FAILED to open this and that file ?
    It asked for a RW report ???? Not sure about this.

    But after all this it said it was succesfull. File made.

    Would this work or do i have to address these errors

    That really depends on the BIOS. It would help if you actually said what the model number is and also a link to the BIOS.

    Now this might sound a bit daft but I was only Given toshiba Sattelite A215

    I looked on the Toshiba download site and found there wer actually quite a few A215 with a prefix after it. The owner was unsure of what else to look for. So i just downloaded one to test. Just for my own purposes really.

    I Wont be able to see the lappy,it live in the USA and I am in the UK.....

    It sounds dafter the more I type.

    I will have to get more info off the owner..

    Cheers for the reply though..

    Well I downloaded the correct BIOS file.
    Extracted the files. then extracted the largest exe file and got a .ROM file.

    I opened this in the Pheonix tool and it worked this time. No errors.

    I load in the .BIN and CERT but it asks for the RW Report..

    Not used the Pheonix tool before so I dont know what the RW Report is or how to get it..Will have to go look..

    Any tips on this please ?

    Cheers..

    Well i dug a bit and found the RW Everything tool and read how to make a RW Report..

    I tested it on my PC..Worked a treat and quite easy too.

    I tested the Phoenix tool with the BIOS .rom,Toshiba SLIC21. bin and cert and my RW report.

    It succesfully made a Toshiba SLIC 2.1 BIOS .rom...

    Just have to get the lappy owner to make a RW report and I'm good to go...
