Hey fellow hackintoshers,
I'm not entirely sure if this is really the right place to ask, but to be honest it seems like the best place to me.
After having my NVRAM working with the AptioFixDrv by dmazar (as far as I know with the help of CodeRush, not entirely sure, but thanks you very much if so!), I thought I could look into having my MSR register unlocked. The guide looked quite simple to me (and in fact it works as simple, thanks again CodeRush ), but my problem is more... essential. I dumped my firmware with AFU and noticed that index 0 and 1 are the exact same (I checked checksums). Thus I read through the topic and found recommendations of FPT (one user suggested it to me "personally" a while back). Downloaded, extracted, run, firmware dumped. I compared the files and found out that they were different. To be precise, index 0 differs. Index 0 and 1 are NOT the same in the image created with FPT, while they are in the AFU image. While the FPT image looks more legit to me, AFU was created by AMI and thus there is a level of trust in it. The other indexes are identical by the way.
As I don't have much knowledge about this area I decided that I either need to forget about patching my firmware or I need advise from someone who has an idea of what he is doing. I attached both dumps below in the zip-file. If you don't mind, I also have a follow-up question: I hear about People losing their motherboard S/N, their MAC adress and other data. Is it possible that THIS is exactly what happened to one of the images? If not, do I have to worry about this with FPT or AFU? I was suggested to use DPCI Maneger to be sure to keep these data, but it failed extraction.
I will appreciate any kind of answer helping me, even if it's a "don't patch". Thanks in advance!
Have a nice day,
