In Topic: [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

02 September 2014 - 02:02 AM

Hi CodeRush - thanks for the great work here. 

 

My intention was to unlock the BIOS Nvram although I am using Dmazar's Clover Aptiofix to boot which works fine as does OS X iMessage - thanks for your valuable input there.

 

Mhhh not far off being a noob, but I think i have patched my Asus Z87 Deluxe Dual Bios using win8.1, the only concern I have although the patched BIOS appears to be working fine but I see an invalid region error (only in UEFI tools) which UEFIPatch appears to have ignored and updated the BIOS blocks OK during the Windows8.1 process. It still all works which is a relief.

 

This is a screenshot http://d.pr/i/AqHa

 

I see no BIOS errors on reboot.

 

This is the original Asus BIOS file.Attached File  Z87-DELUXE-DUAL-ASUS-2004.CAP.zip   5.23MB   0 downloads

 

and this is the supposedly patched bios.bin.patched Attached File  bios.bin.patched.zip   4.25MB   0 downloads

 

I would be grateful when you have the time to please check that it has completed it ok.

 

I am assuming.

1. it has all worked as planned.  :) 2. It hasn't worked at all and I am not aware that it is still running an unmodded BIOS. :(

 

Just need some clarification from an expert as which is the more likely.

 

Thank you again.

Yosemite Handoff & bcm4352.kext

 

EDIT: I have taken the advice of Skvo over at appellate.ru and I will get the Broadcom BCM94360CD plus a PCIe mini to PCIe adapter and use that for BT & WiFi as googling indicates its fully compatible with OS X Yosemite without the need for kext patching.

Hi chris111

 

Yes. I agree the background needs updating and I had it on my list of things to do.

Thanks for submitting your idea though, but I have to question why copy Empire EFI style?

 

 

Empire EFI = bad taste. Such a change is purely cosmetic, and surely a low priority?

Clover_Builder.app.v1.0.2

Update:

  • Compile Clover IA32 now too (thanks to the help a comrade SunKi),
  • Add HFSPlus.efi, HFSPlus-64.efi, NTFS-64.efi to Clover distr.

 

Thanks cVad/Kozlek and all - appreciated.

Not sure what wiki you're talking about but clover wiki clearly shows that DropTables is only under ACPI section. http://clover-wiki.z...ACPI#DropTables
 

  I am referring to the official Clover WIKI in the link you provided - read it again....! :wink_anim:
