transfer slic

#1 Post by bayou self » Mon May 21, 2018 10:08 am

Is there a way to transfer Slic2.1 from my Dell Latitude to my Thinkpad T500? I have purchased Recovery Disks for W7 from a Thinkpadder. The toolkit says my T500 has Slic2.0. Thanks.

You can get a modded T500 BIOS with Slic2.1 here:

Thanks for the link, RBS. However, that file seems to say it's for BIOS 3.22(6FET92WW)--3.24(7VET94WW).
My BIOS says Version 1.20 (6FET92WW), date 2008-10-30. I have Embedded Controller Version 1.01.
Will the file you pointed me toward give me Slic2.1?

More likely yours says 6FET50WW if it's V1.20

Yes, they will give Slic2.1
Mind looking at 6F or 7V differences and pick the 6F.

You're exactly right, I made a typo. Mine is 6FET50WW. So the 6F should work, great!
I'm thinking I should flash the modded BIOS before I try to install W7. Hope there are instructions in the ReadMe file. I seem to remember something about Embedded Controller, whatever that is!
