Thanks guys for the support, I finally got things in order.

I'm setting up Windows at the moment and wil have all the utilities installed shortly again.
Though I have become a Great Fan of Fassl patcher, As it takes alot of time out of modding the bios. I highly recommend using his patcher, as in case the Mod don't work, however I can add in the .aml Directly to the bios for a permanent Bios flash.

As Signal64 said,
The best way to test dsdt modifications without burning a rom is to install chameleon and replace the /boot with the patched chameleon that can read a DSDT.aml file. Search the forum on chameleon dsdt patch.

Now, I am happy to keep working on this project, but I do ask that you give the Patcher a try first as it's safest.
Though, I am still happy to Mod any bios you may need or want, but keep in mind, any time you may flash it could go bad, or the bios may or may not work.

However,
If the Patch works, and you want a hard mod, Plz upload the original Bios along with the Patched .aml File, and I'll get it Modded asap.

To touch on the Bios, Plz don't try any Bios unless it matches your Hardware, as the Case with the EeePC, I do not recommend trying to flash a 900HA with a 900A bios, And I'm not surprised it wont flash, as it my be almost the same, chances are it's not, and this being the reason will not flash.
Also, if you have a problem with booting, *Waiting on Root Device* This is not a DSDT problem, or if a bios don't work, Please Give more info other than, *hey the bios don't work* as this don't give me much to go on.

Thanks,
-OMN

Had a Few Problems, 1 of my Tracer memory was the cause for the System error :) Should be here today though.

*UpDate 8:19am 2/12/08*
Mem Just cam Fedex, Is installed and seems to be working correctly now with no crashes. I have D/L the bios and starting work on them now.
In the mean time I'll just add them here, as my Website is on My Mac for uploading to the Site.

Should be done with in the Hour.
Thanks,

I might have got your done. I've done 6 so far. I will post them all once there done.
Hex editing is not hard, just takes time, and making sure the Hex header is still correct, as If I don't, you will be left with a brick :wacko:
So I take my time to ensure everything is correct.

I just have a few more left. :D

If you can save you Bios in a .rom image I might be able to look at it. Currently in .2m image which My tools can't open.

Alright, take all the time you need :(

Hi! i would really like a modded bios for my Asus G50V gamer laptop:

Org bios(newest):
http://dlcdnet.asus....V/G50V209as.zip

HW:
Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 / 2.4 GHz - 1066MHz CPU FSB
Intel PM45 Chipset
ICH9-M SATA Controller
4GB DDR2 800Mhz Ram (2Gx2)
9700m GT
Intel WiFi Link 5100 - Not working
Realtek ALC663 - Not working

I tried doing as written here on how to mod the bios(http://forum.insanel...howtopic=112033) but it didn't really work. i couldn't find the 4 aliases, described in the tut...
This is the .dsl output i got:
http://rapidshare.co...7756/G50Vas.dsl

G50Vas - done :( yOUR IN THERE YAY oops caps
http://rapidshare.co...as.209.rar.html

Distributor Model Name: HP Pavilion Elite m9350f

OEM Model Name: ASUS M2N78-LA (aka "Pegatron Viola 2.02")

HP BIOS version: AMI 5.24

HP BIOS link: http://crowdsurfoffa...m/osx86/VIO5.24
(completely) Fixed DSDT.dst: http://crowdsurfoffa.../osx86/DSDT.dsl
(completely) Fixed DSDT.aml: http://crowdsurfoffa.../osx86/DSDT.aml
The BIOS of this AMD machine is from AMI. I was able to open this BIOS for editing with mmtool and AMIBCP 3.13. I was able to read (and will assumably be able to write) my BIOS using AFUDOS from the latest amiflash.zip from ami.com. Here's more specs:
CPU: AMD Phenom™ 9850 Quad-Core Processor

Northbridge: NVIDIA nForce 720a rev. A2

Southbridge: NVIDIA ID075C rev. A2
I see that someone helped user Icchan-san with his HP Pavilion Elite m9250f. Please help me with this one! The model numbers are super close, though to forewarn you, this machine is an AMD/nForce model...
In AMIBCP I actually see a 'mode-setting' menu option for how SATA appears to the OS... but I don't actually see it in my BIOS... regrettably, I believe I once had the option to set my SATA to AHCI-mode before upgrading my BIOS to a newer version (and I can't find any older versions online...)

Dear Macnut,

Could you modify my bios please.
Link: ftp://europe.asrock.com/bios/775/G43Twins-FullHD(1.20).zip
SPECIFICATION:

Asrock G43Twins-FullHD

Intel Core 2 E5200

2048Mb DDR2 800MHz
Thank You VERY MUCH


Done

Here is my BIOS (1M) in .ROM for you OMN

http://www.mediafire...php?md1rwdinnwz


It don't have the Settings to change to AHCI, however the CPU strings needed fixed. You might try it now, though if no change use the original bios.

Here is the link, Just change the name of the Bios if you need it shorter. I renamed it so I can keep track of models

Thanks OMN, I shall try it out with a copy of Kalyway.


I know this is kinda off topic, do you have any knowledge on how i could change that onboard sata mode to AHCI? I think is neccessary in order to install osx am i right?

Depends I guess, everyone said it's needed.
But I guess I'm lucky as I've not had to do it myself, which in my case may be rare, however the option is no longer there inside the bios it self.
I would suppose you could add it back, but that is over my head.

Sorry I can't be much more help

Ahh darn, thanks for your help ^_^

Anyways, Kalyway seems to run smoothly, just can't install it at all.

"/Volumes/DATA/BaseSystem.pkg.149xo7gbX" Pretty sure its AHCI related or something.
(If anyone sees this and knows a solution please pm me)

Glad to hear that you are back up OMN, I hate it when RAM goes bad. I was just wondering if you had a chance to work on a bios mod for my machine yet? :-) I posted back on page 6, post #120. If you need my specs again, they are below. Thanks again for the help! :-)

Here are my specs (custom built by myself) :

AMD Phenom X4 9950 oc'ed 3.2 Ghz
Asus M3A79-T Deluxe Motherboard (ATI 790FX/SB750 chipset)
4 gigs of 1066 DDR2 RAM (2x2 gig sticks)
2 Sapphire ATI 3870s
1 500 Gig SATA internal HDD (Primary)
1 250 Gig SATA internal HDD (secondary)
1 500 Gig eSata external HDD
1 250 Gig USB external HDD

I am currently running the newst BIOS from Asus, I believe it is the 602. If you go to their site select Motherboard --> Socket AM2/AM2+ --> M3A79-T Deluxe --> Vista 32 bit, you should find under the bios menu, the newest bios, 602. It is a .rom file so hopefully that will work. Thanks in advance for your help and have a great day or evening!! :-)

P.S. I have tried to attach the .rom file just in case the link doesn't work but the forum won't let me. Sorry. :-(

Also, I am running iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Everything is working (so far) except that I have to boot in safe mode to even get to the desktop, otherwise it just goes to a blueish color screen and stays like that. I thought that maybe I needed to run cpus=1 but I don't, I just need to boot into safe mode to run os x. OS X only sees one core and will only run on one core, even when I don't use cpus=1. So I am hoping that this bios mod will fix the safe mode issue and also the single core issue. Thanks again! :-)

Can you use RapidShare?
I would pref. if you link the bios, no way of any error on my part that way.

Sounds like it's putting the other Cores to sleep and locking the PC up, well, based on prev. exp. that is. I'll have a look, but can't promise anything


*UPDATE*
I've looked at the Bios, Can you try running Fassl DSDT patcher. this would take me to long to edit, as it shots back over 201 error, I've found the problem, but fixing the rest would take forever manually editing in hex.
Thanks,
-Omn
