    [SOLVED] Which SLIC is being used?

    I found this link: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...uests/page4233?p=711881&viewfull=1#post711881 that has the bios mod I need but I see that it says SLIC ASUS, does that mean its going to load a ASUS SLIC into my bios?

    Also, which bios "type" do I have, I read that there is three, AWARD, AMI, and PHOENIX?
    I have the Biosversion.exe and SLIC_ToolKit_V3.2.exe which both point at AMI but the amitool163 tool isn't working for me. I'm sure that I am using it wrong so I will continue to read the forums.


    UPDATE:

    1 Read that I need to extract the files from the exe my board manufacture provides for the bios update, tried 7zip, doesn't extract.

    2 Found find_gz.exe and it doesn't appear to do anything other than read the exe.

    3 A little scared, Ran the modded bios from my link and now I am about to restart.

    4 okay so I see that it does add the asus slic to my bios..
    now how do I mod the bios file myself?
