    Hello, i have a problem with my hp 6730b. Somebody write down, that in the actual bios version Slic 2.1 is included.
    I update the bios and the only thing i found RW-Everything is the tab RSDT with this information.

    Root System Description Table: 0xB9FFE0AC

    I have no tab "Slic". Is my Notebook Slic 2.1 ready or not. Which Bios Version for the 6730B is Slic 2.1 ready?
    Many thanks for the help.

    hi,

    If you have no SLIC table I think this method will help you.

    please report

    hi,

    Can I assume the same for the 6510b?

    Nevermind. They both use the same bios so the answer is obviously yes.

    Hi,

    Been reading the thread with interest. You seem to be making good progress with some BIOS, especially laptops :) Just wondering whether any progress had been made with desktops, in particular HP dc7700:-

    http://forums.mydigitallife.info/showthread.php?p=96709&highlight=dc7700#post96709

    I believe Yen had a quick look at my request before starting this HP-Phoenix Bios thread.

    I had a play around with a couple of suggestions made to others, but had no joy as yet. If you want me to test anything let me know.

    Goot :)
