    Hi, TTAV134
    Wow~ Finally, I made it!
    Thans a lot!

    I got HPBI103.EXE and HPBI108.EXE in a chinese web site.
    When try HPBI108.EXE first, I got an error message 'not supported machine.'

    I launched the command 'hpbi103 read slp', it said 'SLP : disabled'
    So, I typed 'hpbi103 write slp on'.
    Finally, SLP state was changed to enabled!
    But there is no SLIC table as ever after first reboot.

    So I flash the latest bios one more time.
    After flash, my laptop has SLIC 2.1 table finally!

    Cheers!:D

    Do you think the peoples with SLIC2.0 can disable the SLP, flash the original 2.0 containing bios, enable it again and flash a modded one with the direct memory edit method / or patched rompaq to get even a SLIC2.1???:eek::)
    IMO it worth to try it could really work!!!

    I have an 8710w, I'll try that method now. Currently I have SLP enabled, I'll turn it off, flash original 2.0 BIOS, then turn it on, then flash modded bin with direct memory patch method...i'll report when i'm done.

    Bios recovery for hp laptop

    Hi,

    Method for a HP BIOS RECOVERY:

    Prerequisite:
    The BIOS recovery procedure requires a USB diskette drive and a formatted diskette.
    USB pen ----> doesn't work

    Download you BIOS from HP, please note the model 68xxx

    Copy the bin file of the BIOS on the diskette. eg:68YHV.BIN and not ROM.BIN

    Press the 4 harrow keys (up, down, right, left) on the keyboard and power ON.

    Wait ~2, 3 seconds an release the keys.

    Wait the end of the process ( 2 minutes)

    Will this work for USB keys as well? If I ever needed to do this, my laptop 8710w don't have a floppy drive :)
