hmm, I wonder - would NV really use some form of NDA with their hacked XF SLI drivers?

I don't have any ideas at the moment. I haven't tried making any more changes to my drivers yet or Sol's yet either.

Also I don't think this is an SLI modded BIOS. If I search for Fzeven and SLIC on Google I see that this Fzeven modder added an SLIC table to this BIOS (hence the SLIC added to the end of the name) which is for purposes of Vista SLA 2.0 Volume Activation (in otherwards used for a Vista activation hack) and has nothing to do with SLI enabling on the BIOS.

So I'm not sure what video options you guys are having Sinister enable or what they are doing here..

if you still have the modded bios...uninstall your drivers and the ngo patch if you have it installed...reboot enable everything in the bios for SLI when your back into windows install the unmodified forceware whql from nvidias site.

steve if i could make a suggestion, you can always let bluevelvet/solaris take control of your computer remotely for a short time so that they can perform tests and stuff.. plus they can do all of the hard and confusing stuff for you, this might make things easier..

I'd like to collect some quick data from some systems that are running SLI on nV boards. Ideally, I'd like to remote into a PC and then do some quick data scraping.

Anyone reading this thread want to volunteer? :)
