    Award bioses to open with cbrom 1.82. You can extract all modules you want and edit with hexeditor. Thats pure hex code
    Btw: The first idea comming in my mind was not to edit hp bios but make HP board to flash with ASUS P5LD2-VM DH bios

    That was my initial idea as well, but I have no way of flashing an AMI bios over an Award-Phoenix Bios. Or more importantly, backup the bios and flash it from dos, incase something bad happends.

    Do you know a way to do either of those?

    I tried flashing the rom using the asus dos program and through the HP windows program, but both failed (unrecognized bios structure and not compatible update).

    That's really dangerous. I read where someone tried that and trashed the bios. The problem is that the P5LP-LE is not the same as the retail ASUS board. It may be based on it, but it's completely proprietary and is made exclusively for HP. It may have components missing and be a completely different configuration.

    If unlocking the MB is accomplished, it's likely it will be by modding the native bios. That seems to be the way to go.

    Well I "unlocked" some features for my hp bios releases using modbin and cbrom32 because 1.x wouldn't create a error free bios file. I have 3.13 and 3.14 modded for the compaq sr1750nx and a few other models. I could take a look at your bios I guess.

    well some bad news so far i can't open your bios in modbin....which is what I use to unhide the features. If anyone knows of a newer version of mobin6 then the one that is on rebelshaven please let me know.
