    Hi,

    Just got my NEW Gigabyte x79-UD3 today.
    I'm going to start assembling everything this week.

    In the past I've modded a bios before, plenty of times.

    I've heard and know this BIOS used UEFI.

    I've heard that these BIOS's require digital signatures

    Does this mean that a SLIC table can't be inserted into it and I have to resort to a software hack like DAZ or can the bios for a UEFI bios such as mine can be modded.

    Thanks in advance

    As if it depends upon the vendor/product of your BIOS, not an EFI specific issue ;-)

    Bios revision: F7
    Bios Type: AWARD UEFI BIOS

    SLIC: GIGABYTE 2.1

    Cert: GIGABYTE

    Modded with Phoenix Mod Tool 1.94
    Mod method: MODULE

    Biosmod:
