In Topic: [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

Hi CodeRush,


I managed to flash my BIOS (ASUS Z87 DELUXE DUAL) with the file you provided.

Still I had to make a DSDT in order to get fully functional Sleep.


Since bios flash I have a problem regarding the Realtek Ethernet latest driver causing KP. Is it possible or am I missing something else ?


Thank you very much.

Sorry for the late reply. Apparently it is related to GUID Partition Table formated disk. A prevent lock or UEFI bug, i don't know. MBR format no problem.


I have switched the Asus vs a Gigabyte.

I had to deal with the same issue installing the Z87 DELUXE DUAL. What a mess !

First thing was to install using MBR and not GUID.

Then I cloned my ML 10.8.4 OS and updated it to 10.8.5.

Then installed chameleon r1152

Then i flashed my BIOS using PMPatch (needed to be renames correctly) and flashed with Asus USB Flash Back

Edited a DSDT for sleep (as the flashed BIOS wasn't enough and I needed to edit DSDT anyway for my FireWire800 TI card).


And that's it.

Try flashing unmodified BIOS. Are you sure you named your BIOS file properly?
Once again, BIOS for Z87 Deluxe is defferent from BIOS for Z87 Deluxe/Dual.
There is properly patched and properly named BIOS file for your board.
If UBF refuses to flash it - I don't know what is wrong.

Thank you for this BIOS. I will try it tomorrow.


• What do you mean by naming it correctly ? Do I need to rename the file with the same name ASUS gave it in the first place ? Or do I keep the current name ?


If it Still doesn't work I will try flashing with the original BIOS from ASUS as it's a good test to see if USB Flash Back function is not buggy on this version of the BIOS.


Thanks fot your effort !

No I have not managed to patch the BIOS. 

The USB Flash Back function doesn't takes the moded bios. The light goes still after a while and nothing happens.


I think it needs a little more tweeking from CodeRush but I can't help him debugging the problem as there is no log of the operation.

He told me to try with different USB drives which I did without success so far. 


EDIT : my mistake I wasn't renaming the CAP file correctly, a tool called ASUS BRenamer can help rename the bios file correctly fot UFB flashing.
