    VMware Workstation 7.0 support Vista/Win7 Aero! It's a exciting feature.
    However I have trouble adding SLIC 2.1 to the BIOS. I extracted resource 6006 from vmware-vmx.exe and used previous known method to attempt to mod it.
    I Use Phoenix BIOS Editor Pro 2.2 to open it, and Build a new BIOS without changing anything. The new BIOS is not bootable when adding to bios440.filename.
    Even if Phoenix BIOS Editor Pro 2.2 could reassemble a working BIOS, another challenge is that BIOSCOD0.ROM doesn't contain RSDT or XSDT string anymore. Maybe it's no longer in plain text and need some work to unhide it.

    Attached is the extracted resource 6006 BIOS from 7.0 RC build 197124. Please help.
