Basic Input Output System, Advanced Customization.

B.I.O.S

I have an Non~UEFI Award Modular v6.00PG Bios, and I'm looking for proper,
smooth, easy, error free method to open, edit & save as new bios file of this particular bios.

For the some time now, I have searched and studied the web for improved methods of bios editing.
And for the most part:
(not really interested in the whole corporate conspiracy thingy
blocking people from doing so easily for unknown and known reasons)
Thus I have only found some methods most of witch are intentionally
exceedingly overcomplicated while running Windows 7 64bit,
witch I will filter and post here, if I am the one to solve this riddle.

Please post below if you know working smooth error free methods, software, freeware, tools, apps that anyone could utilize to accomplish this.

PS: I have edited my post, if have quoted me you might want to update your quote.

Since the BIOS loads before any Operating System it is difficult to save it to disk. Since the demise of the Parallel Port on computers and Parallel Port printers [think DotMatrix and older Laserjet/Inkjet] it has come down to taking pictures of the screen. With digital cameras one doesn't have to wait for processing.

Saving current, duplicating or producing an image of a b.i.o.s. is quite simple and very effective.

Many motherboards get sold with an accompanying utility to update it's bios, hence that can safely be used to produce a bios file.

It's the viewing, editing and saving of an edited bios file where we are hindered.

Here is some read in the meantime:

I don't thinks so. I can view, I can edit, and I can save my BIOS. You took the time to make your post look different, colors and such, and you can't figure out the BIOS? Maybe you are on a "trip"

I'm always on a trip...an awesome trip of gaining knowledge that's why I'm iTRiP!

Ok "Dude" I suppose your also talking about viewing, editing and the saving of an "bios File", witch you have produced of your currently in use bios?

If you are, then probably we are on the same page. Then please share how you managed to do that, that is the main reason for my thread, so everyone utilizing seven forums can learn what we know.

Fair enough iTRiP, are you referring to just making BIOS changes, for example

ASUS Z77 Motherboard UEFI BIOS Tuning Guide - Republic of Gamers

or like in this vid which is my motherboard



or do you mean make a custom modded BIOS. I have never tried this

Good, now we are on the same page. I have studied that entire webpage amongst other pages like it and as I have stated above:

(editing of UEFI & Non~UEFI Bios file)

"Dude" I see you have a UEFI bios, I however still have a non~UEFI bios, fortunately or maybe unfortunately I purchased my mobo just before those came along, but that's shouldn't be a problem. We could just compile both versions of gathered methods and utilities in this thread for others to use once we solve this riddle.

Update: I almost depleted the internet's collective public knowledge regarding this, still haven't found anything useful yet! (wait there is one thing that comes to mind now speaking of witch and that is that application intended for nvidia gpu owners to edit their gpu bioses, if I recall correctly from my experiments with that application it can perfectly open and save as a bios file, an motherboard bios file along with what it is actually intended for) I believe its called "NiBiTor" , now if we could only contact the creator of this application and get him or her to implement known motherboards GUI and interpreting, it could be the programme we all seek and we'll call it "MoBiTor".

Finally found some old tools to do this, it's pretty inefficient thou.

And They only run in real mode 16Bit.

One Bios Application called: CM

And an SMB Application called: SMBCFG

...please add below if you can contribute to this thread.
