    I's a while since I read a lot about Slic's and slic 2
    I've an old Bios and want to run a bios mod, and know about the new SLIC2.1

    what I wante to do is setting the old bios to the old OEM BIOS
    I thought of finding a way using the new tools( awardTools for doing that) Can I do that ?
    but seem not to find a way to make an old OEM BIOS. Can someone help me a hand


    -have the original BIOS
    -have an original ASUS CERT
    -have the SLI text file
    -Have the OEMBIOS files

    but I' seem to miss the OLD ASUS.BIN (is it different from the new ?) I gave it a try and got a complaint about certificat not matching
    Do I need an older tool to do the mod ?


    Thanks in advance

    And what do you want to achive?
    Activate XP?

    Then you need SLP 1.0 string in your BIOS

    Use one of Andy's tool for this (I assume you have ASUS board)

    Used the award tool, and succeded in creating the new BIOS

    But, I had to relay on some old asus.bin /xml files i kept stored on my disk
    could not find the original ones in the tool anymore
    I gess most of us have moved to win 7 but every once and a while one needs an
    xp for an old machine.

    Let's hope my changed bios Boots
    If you do't here frome me again in the next weeks I Failed

    You do NOT need .bin (which is SLIC) for just SLP edit with Andy tool

    (OP)
    I'm in trouble รค problem is preventing windows from acurately checking the license for this computer x80004005 (is this OEMBIOS access?)
    Now after all the magic where is the problem and what do I do about it?

    I was under the impression ASUS OEM was correctly detected by OEMBIOS VLK to OEM
    I'm using system disk H: running from the an other disk but that was supported ??!!

    ANy Idea how to get further

    I can get in the system in sve mode ... Normal mode automaticaly logs me out
    But I can access the file system remotely


    Did the classic Regsrv32 with a load of dll's but that succeded but did not help
