I can't wait till they provide one for P5Q Pro. They should have adopted the standard sooner.

The EFI-Bios don´t touch the DSDT fix of the old Version!

Whats the point of having an EFI P5Q bios, when you can use DSDT?

This may be a daft question - does this this BIOS allow you to run without a Decryption kext?

did you forgot that bios based MB can also run osx w/o decryption with smc emulation :rolleyes:

anyway i don't think that there is a smc device/emulation on this beta efi

i not sure of that, so please tell us locojens

I have this board with the UEFI bios, and OS X runs without problems. But I have to use the normal way of booting with chameleon. It is not booting refit or OS X CD. It does boot the UEFI from Windows 7 however. I tried linux and grub2.efi but no success yet. (I have not made big efforts in getting it working tough).

I downloaded all the files and cannot get it to install :(
THe manual discusses different file names than the downloaded file, I made a dos bootable usb stick and still nothing :(
typical asus.

And I agree, why bother retaining DSDT tables from the old bios if you're going to use a new UEFI system?

This version of uefi bios for deluxe is really not much stable in overclock and unfortunately the Asus says that there will not a new version based on the 2301 legacy bios..

Ciao

I know it's unstable, but I need it for dynamic EFI emulation, instead of static chameleon. Especially I need MGs and CPBs values from UEFI running system.
