Thanks for reply!
I tried both but no luck so far. Both versions have same result.

Patch installs without problem, I get dual selection for boot and OS works after boot but SLI is not enabled, and I dont get the selection for it in nvidia control panel in same tab with PhysX.

Instead it breaks up Daemon tools which works fine without SLI patch.

As you could see on the screenshot i have provided, i have used it on Windows 7, not XP.
And my setup was AM3+ board with 870FX chip-set (CrossFire board), and i had the SLI-bridge on the graphics cards.

As an another Finn, I'll translate that error: "This program requires at least Windows 2000 and SPTD 1.60 or better. The kernel debugger must be disabled"
