    Hi folks,

    how do i find out if my rompaq bios contains double slic (HP Compaq 6715s)? I thought i nearly read everything about it, but did not find an answer.

    Any ideas for HP 6715b ? :(

    Thanks...


    EDIT: I resolve with windows 7 loader. I checked "new experimental loader" and now my win 7 is activated.

    Thanks a lot :))))

    Best regards,
    Milos.

    hi,

    Open the rom.bin with an hex editor and search the string HPQOEM, if you find it twice (and you will) you have 2 sclic tables.

    regards

    Maybe we can do something whit winphlash, i was checkeing a bios for a friend and accidentally i begin a backup, i guess it didn't do any but it create a 2mb bios.bak file then i try to flash it but it say something about incorrect size and checksums, lately whit the same file i try in dos whit phlash16 and say the same thing so maybe we are not limited to HPqflash and Rompaq.exe, we only need the correct tables for winphlash for the creation of a correct bios.bak and a bios mod.

    On the device section of winphlash it shows a w25x16 512x4k chip and a mx25i1605a 32x64 chip, it could be the security chip? cause the first one its a windbond chip, i asume that its a chip like the one updated by ttav134 on its 6910p using an eeprom programmer.

    Regards
