i have an ASUS X52SV notebook which says it uses the F3Sv motherboard. would i be able to flash it with the modified F3Sv 208 BIOS so that I could get both cores working? ASUS don't have any BIOS (or drivers) on their site for the X52 at all! cheers.

many thanks for the previous bios mod for my Asus VX3, asus updated the bios. Wondering if you have time to update the fix on the latest release.

Thanks in advance.

java script:downloadfile(this,'VX3','nb%2fVX3%2fVX3203AS.zip','3','76','0','5','VX3203AS.zip') is all I could get from the ASUS site.

The file you linked to is worthless, it's for windows only and has no ROM file. I had to search around the site to find the proper file. I modded the ROM according to David's guide and I'm almost certain it's done correctly. If anyone would like to check my work to make sure it's correct I have also included the original unmodified SingleLink.dat(as ASROCKSingleLink.dat) for comparison, as well as the MD5 hash of the modified bios file.

Again, I double checked and it looks correct to me. However, you may want to wait for someone more skilled to check it out before you go ahead with flashing to be safe...

I think there are a lot of differente f3jc laptops, each one with different video bios (which usually is contained in the main bios file), so that's probably why it killed your laptop.

Thx to david_tsu guide i got finally my bios modded for working osx leopard on 2 cores

its only the dos version but it shouldn't be a problem booting with an old win98 disk or bootcd for dos into dos and start the flashing process using: "afudos P35P130M" (without "quotes")

The bios is for the ASROCK 4Core1600P35-WiFi+ - dont know if it works for the without WIFI version... but the only difference between the WIFI+ and the standart boxed version is that the standart boxed version is dilivered without the wificard for the mini slot on the board... so it should theoretically work. if someone tests it please let the others know if it works.

reports, thx, greatings are always welcome, so... dont hacitade :blink:

have fun with 2 cores

DJnEO

DISCLAIMER: i give no warrenty for misflashed boards or everything else. try it on your own risk!


Tested&confirmed, it works with with quad core also, on an ASROCK 4Core1600P35-WiFi+. which, by the way, has 2 firewire ports, unlike the 4Core1600P35-WiFi.





Kabyl, is the version on your site the same one as the version posted here by DjNeo?

If you mean the BIOS version,then it clearly says 1.30, if you mean the mod, then no, the one posted on my site also clearly says by Kabyl :blink:

I'm glad the bios worked for you. What kind of CPU do you have? Were you having the problem of Having to boot with the cpus=1 flag? Because that's what the modded bios is supposed to fix.

About the audio card, I don't think the sound blaster cards will work; I'd say you should try patching the on board ALC662.

Try patching the audio with this program, drag the codec dump txt file onto the frog face: AppleHDAPatcherv1.20
CODEC Dump: ALC662 Dump (Right click, save as)

Hey,

Would you do that to my bios too? It can only load OS X while using old ACPI kexts and the infamous "cpus=1" flag.

It's Twinhead J12S.
CPU: Intel Core™2 Duo Processor T7300 2 GHz
Chipset: Mobile Intel PM965 Express Chipset +ICH8M
Graphics: Intel X3100

After reading the instructions I tried doing it myself but apparently it has too many errors (167 to be exact) and I don't seem to find them on google.

Hi Kabyl!!!

First of all, very nice work you're doing...

I have a hp nc6320 laptop and i have installed a Leopard 10.5.2 on it but only works if I disable the dual core option in the BIOS or boot flag cpu=1

Here is the link to the BIOS ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38501-39000/sp38743.exe

The nc6320 has a t5600 core 2 duo processor and a Intel GM945 Express Chipset.

could you mod the BIOS o tell me how should i do it??

Thank you so much in advance.

I've attached below the modified bios for the MSI P31 Neo-F (MS-7392), it's the latest V1.2 from MSI. I've also included the MD5 checksum of the bios in the txt file, might be a good idea to make sure they match.

Should work fine; however, I would suggest creating a recovery disk just in case something goes wrong. See THIS post for instructions. The original unmodified bios is linked to above.
