Good question. The answer, fortunately, is yes. It is normal for different motherboards with the same version of firmware to have different checksums. When we examine the full chip dump, we see that the differences are typically in the scratch areas of the active and inactive partitions.@CaseySJ is it normal for thunderbolt NVM from same boards to be different?
After I dumped my board NVM and compared it to the patched one I found a lot of bytes changed. Would it be better to patch the dumped NVM or just patch the one posted here?
I have attached my dump. SHA 3e0184a538b6ad7323a8f6b536524becb8a89f6d
Your extracted firmware looks perfectly fine. As long as the same physical chip is read multiple times and the checksums of those files are identical, then all is good.
