ASUS MSR 0xE2 Register unlocking

Hi all.


I had a look at all the forum sections & wasn't sure where to post this as the guide I'm following is Closed so I couldn't post my questions there.


I am following the great KGP's guide here :: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331703-how-to-build-your-own-mac-pro-based-on-broadwell-eep-haswell-eep-and-x99-successful-buildextended-guide/?tab=comments#comment-2570747


I was originally looking at another one of his guides but this one seems a bit newer/updated.


In section "B1.) ASUS Mainboard BIOS Patching"

I have done the instructions & got the return messages in terminal just as the guide shows, & successfully made a patched BIOS file which I renamed according to my motherboard model & used the patched BIOS file to flash my motherboard BIOS using BIOS Flashback just as the guide shows. My original BIOS  I was on was 1802 & my new patched BIOS is 2101.


Can someone PLEASE tell me a way to confirm that I have successfully unlocked the MSR 0xE2 Register ?? 


KGP's first guide I was reading into involved UBU & MMtool to unlock/patch my BIOS CPU Microcodes but I think that method is outdated now??  As this guide I posted the link to doesn't use UBU & MMtool to patch/unlock but instead uses CodeRush's UEFI patch to unlock MSR 0xE2 Register. 


Thanx for your time,

n.d.k thanx for your reply.


Is it possible to confirm if it's indeed unlocked without Clover ?   Any other method ?
