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. Z87-DELUXE-DUAL-ASUS-2004.CAP.zip 5.23MB 0 downloads
and this is the supposedly patched bios.bin.patched bios.bin.patched.zip 4.25MB 2 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.
