    I have an Acer Aspire T180, and I want to mod the bios, but I have few questions.

    The bios is said to be an Phoenix Technologies, LTD R01-B3 (msinfo and RWEverything), but the "Aspire T180/E380 AcerPower M8 Service Guide" says that it is a Award BIOS.

    Questions :
    1. Are Award BIOS and Phoenix BIOSes the same thing?
    2. Are Phoenix BIOSes only "hidden" Award BIOS?
    3. Are Phoenix BIOSes "self" BIOS?
    4. Can Phoenix BIOSes be AMI "hidden" BIOS?
    5. Can I follow any Award BIOS mod for this Aspire T180?
    6. Or have I to follow a particular tutorial for this Phoenix BIOS?

    Thanks for the links, but they do not answer to this question:
    • Is the bios an Award Bios?
    If I am not mistaken, I read this at boot and in the bios :
    • Award BIOS Type Phoenix - Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00PG
    Because I want to mod the bios for:
    • Unlock features
    • Change license in the bios (So I need to know what is the bios for following the good tutorials in mydigitallife)
