    I would like to release the ACPITBL, and re-insert ACPITBL to the end. I think this will be a problem for the sensitive modules.
    Is there a way to add a BIN file with garbage data that match original ACPITBL.BIN size?

    I heard some people use SLIC (or something similar), but I don't use windows. I don't really want to fill my BIOS with MS stuff.
    Is it possible to add a BIN file that is filled with zeros? I would be grateful for any help!

    Can I create a dummy module and insert it with the same zise as ACPITBL ? I hope someone can help me, please!
