    Hi there!

    I want to mod the BIOS on my own to learn how it works.
    Now I`m at the end of my ideas.
    I read the stickys but the first problem is to find out what BIOS I have. :rolleyes:
    Never thought that this can be a problem but it is.
    Ok, in the manual the BIOS name is UEFI.
    Don`t know if it is Phoenix or AMI or AWARD or...UEFI.
    In another mod request thread for this mainboard someone wrote "BIOS type: AMI".

    My plan is to mod the BIOS file before I install the Mainboard.
    I use the Phoenix SLIC Mod UEFI, change the manufacturer to ASUS, select the ASUS SLIC.BIN,
    select the ASUS SLP file (there is no word of this in the Howto but I think it is right),
    and then there is a RW file which I maybe need.
    I install the RW-Everything software and make a rw-file. But NOT from the new mainoard of course because
    it isn`t installed yet. But is this the right way? The rw-file is from another mainboard...

    Or can I mod the Bios without this rw-file? :confused:
    Which method do I have to take? SSV2? Or dynamic? :confused:

    THX!

    yes use PhoenixDell/EFI mod 1.97 is what im using today.
    file from asus for V deluxe P8Z77-V-DELUXE-ASUS-0906.CAP
    bios recovery filename : Z77VD.CAP

    in the tool with this one u can skip RW report since its NOT Phoenix .. rather EFI (style) from AMI ?
    this bios contains slic 2.0 so Dynamic Replaces it with Slic 2.1 asus.. and slp asus is for windows xp so no real need for it but i used it
    SLIC performed successfully.
    BIOS file is C:\tools\bios\NoSlic\Asus\P8Z77-V-DELUXE-ASUS-0906\P8Z77-V-DELUXE-ASUS-0906_SLIC.CAP

    theres some way to make it Permanent with bios backup and DMI method. ( i havent done it yet)

    Yes this helps! Many thanks! :)

    And I read the manual very carefully again and found an AMI UEFI Bios!
    So I skip it.

    I think I have to ask for a modded BIOS.

    I tried it many times but W7 is not activated.

    - download the newest BIOS CAB-file from ASUS
    - start Phoenixtool 1.97
    - load the BIOS
    - set manufacturer to ASUS
    - select a ASUS 2.1 SLIC file from the Phoenixtool list (later I`ve tried other SLICS)
    - selcet Method: dynamic
    - load and test the ASUS CERT
    - Update withe the new BIOS file

    Everything seems fine:

    But the SLIC Toolkit V3.2 says:

    toolkit.jpg

    When I open an extern BIN file (same file as I use for modding) in the SLIC Toolkit the
    status is: "Dump OK ! ( _ASUS_Notebook_V2.1 )"

    I understand that I don't have to activate W7 manual, right?

    Don't know whats going wrong...o_O

    EDIT:

    Now I got a modified BIOS from the request thread but it is the same problem. It doesn't work.
    I can't use the bupdater because I have a x64 System. The update was made with the ASUS Software.

    Any further ideas?

    Did you flash it into your motherboard?

    Mine is P8Z77-V Pro. I modded the BIOS 0906 with phoenixtool 1.98 but it failed the security verification in EZ Flash 2.
    Finally I saved it in a USB drive and use the motherboard built-in "Flashback" function to flash it into my motherboard.
    It's succeeded. I have activated my winodws 7.
    Any other way to flash my modded BIOS besides "Flashback".

    Yes, I did.

    I mod that p9z77-v pro bios with phoenixtool 1.98 and selected Dynamic method. Manufacturer: pick ASUS.
    Then you have to pick a SLIC file. Don't select SLP file and RW report file, just leave it blank.
    Go to advanced option. Check the box "Don't alter any ACPI tables".
    Uncheck the box "Replace all OEM/Table ID occurences"
    Then click DONE and click GO to modify your BIOS.
    It should be passed the security verification

    I have Asus P8Z77-I DELUXE motherboard, but this method and the other, without editing advanced options, doesn't work.
    Failed the security verification in EZ Flash 2 and DOS method . Build built-in "Flashback" function not working also, the LED blinks 3 times and turns steady.
    Any idea ? Please ?

    i got a Asus P8Z77-I (mini-itx) and i just used this guidelines and it worked perfect!

    P8Z77-I-DELUXE-SI-0504 update and Check the box "Don't alter any ACPI tables".
    Uncheck the box "Replace all OEM/Table ID occurences"
    Then click DONE and click GO to modify your BIOS.



    then i was a bit stupid but i used asus windows bios flash utility (Asus Update) but everything worked out GREAT!!!!

    Flashback is the safest method - especially for UEFI, as it does not require an OS (therefore, the chances of the OS or other program mucking it up are reduced to none); alternatively, you can use EZ-Flash 2 (part of the firmware of all recent ASUS motherboards, UEFI or not). The best method (after you've modded the BIOS) requires two USB drives (smallest size you feel safe with) of different colors - one with the unmodded version of the new BIOS, and the other with the modded version. (Naturally, the thumb-drives should be identical except for color or other feature making them easy to tell apart; the BIOS names, on the other hand, *must* be identical, per ASUS BIOS renaming schema.) Flash to the unmodded BIOS first (using either Flashback or EZ-Flash 2, which is included in all ASUS BIOSes of recent vintage), shutdown completely, do a full-up boot (to make sure the BIOS is otherwise solid), shutdown completely, cold-boot into EZ-Flash 2 again (or use Flashback, whichever suits), shutdown completely, re-cold boot yet again (full-up). USB 2.0 thumb drives of different colors (they don't have to be fancy) are far from expensive - 4 GB Verbatim Classic or Kingston DataTraveler thumb drives are more than large enough, and are $4.99 each at MicroCenter stores throughout the US.

    EDIT:

    Sorry guys, the Asus own updater download a wrong bios. Only 70kb...this can't work.
    Now I can go to step two...
