I'm new here, so this is my first post, I had some problems trying to patch my bios, I have one asrock z77 pro3, I've found the custom bios on http://biosrepo.wordpress.com/asrock/z77/ but I have not figured how to install this custom bios. Also I've tried to use PMPatch, followed each step, selected input and output file, but the program can't alter the 1.90 original bios that I've found on asrock website.

I have one 16gb pendrive with mavericks downloaded from apple store on it

i used this patch on the file for my bios and everything went smoothly. but when i go to flash the bios file my screen hangs on the bios screen and appears to be frozen. nothing on the screen changes except for the box that disappears when i choose the bios file that i want to flash. I am using a MSI Z87-GD65 board. is this something that is going to happen and i just need to let it sit or am i doing something wrong when flashing it.

What i have been doing is formatting the usb to fat32 through the formating process on windows. putting the patched file on the root of the usb. and then i restart my computer and go into the bios and click the option to update my bios. then i find the bios on the usb where it then freezes and the most i see is the bios screen where it just hangs there.

the closest I get to using the modifed bios is the bios boot from option.

I'm glad to report that I succesfully used this tool on my Asus U46SV laptop, with BIOS version 204.

I, however, had to use AFUWINX64 to flash the bios, because the Asus utility won't let me flash the same BIOS version, even if it's unpatched.

On Afuwin, I had to overide the ROMID check and everything went smoothly. I used the GUI version of the tool.

I'm using vanilla AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and it works fine.

Cheers!

EDIT:

I need help CodeRush,

Although almost everything is working fine, I realized that my DMI data was reseted. I don't have a MB serial number, and specially, the UUID. Now, my nvram is not working and I get the "No UUID present in SMBIOS System Information Table".

I've tried editing my patched bios with AMIBCP but I don't know how to set an UUID there. In type 1 table, I set the Serials just fine, also the SKU#. And the 6th field I assume is the UUID.

Sometimes when I enter many numbers, the DMI goes crazy and the Type 1 table is not displayed after a reboot, that causes me to get the nvram loading on OS X, but the serial is not injected and I don't get a system definition.

The tools I also used to insert the UUID is AMIDEDOS, DMIDOS and SMBCFG. The latter came with a success and now it says that DMI is read only.

I can generate an UUID with AMIDEDOS /SU AUTO, and says it's done, but it won't survive a reboot.

I also tried your FDD44Editor and I can input the values, but they can't save it to either the untouched downloaded Asus Bios or my pmpatched. My bios is Aptio and it's just 2MB of size.

If anyone knows something, please post it here.

EDIT2:

I can modify everything with SMBCFG except the f***g UUID!!! I can't save it. It says is read only and the values are just all FFFFFFs.

Cheers!
