    Hi All,

    I used to use a special tool for Vm workstation version 9 called "VMBIOS selector" that applied a SLIC BIOS to Vmware Workstation V9 I have had to upgrade to Workstation v10 but I do not know how to add a Slic modified Vmware BIOS. I want to use Windows XP in a virtual environment to test exploits.

    Does anyone know how I can modify my Workstation 10 BIOS?

    It does not seem to work for me, do I need to add anything else to it? It just comes with the EXE do I need need to add a folder or something with the SLIC BIOSes?

    Run the exe; it is self-contained & next steps are self-explanatory.

    I executed the program with full administrative right's. I get the Dell Vmware BIOS V2.1 is turned on screen, the program closes but when I went to execute vmware its BIOS was still the same old Vmware BIOS. I am running version workstation 10.0.1 build-1379776.

    Do I need to close out of the vmware processes or restart the machine or something like that?

    It patches the bios with Dell SLIC & SLP strings which are required for OEM:SLP activation. What else do you want?? Dell logo on the bios screen??
