    Is it possible to add ASUS_FLASH to Asus Award BIOS with ONLY cbrom32?

    modbin6 does that well, but I understand should not really be used on new(er) BIOS'

    Thanks

    Yep. You need to take the systembios out with winhex (or other) as an lha module. Decompress it with winrar, modify the strings, adjust the size of the system bios back to premod size by modifying text strings, readd to dummy bios with cbrom (to compress), add the compressed module back to bios with cbrom, adjust chksum.

    Bottom line..its not as hard as it looks, but it is not easy..:D:D

    Best way:
    Use the AWDtool from Andyp and do not add slic, only SLP..done..:D:D

    It uses cbrom
