    I am preparing to generate a RWeverything report (s) for a bios I am going to request
    to be modded (in the appropriate forum ). The question is :

    Do I need to be running the the actual bios I am requesting be modified when I generate
    this report?

    The reason I ask is because I am currently running a perfectly modified bios with the
    correct cert and key...and WAT still shut me down. Gigabyte MA790x-UD4P F5 bios
    is what I am currently running and the F9 is what I am going to.

    Thank you much in advance!

    That Gigabyte MB (like almost all Gigabyte MB's) uses an AWARD Bios so the R/W everything report isn't necessary to make the mod.
    Just be sure to include all necessary info and a link to the original Bios file.

    Thanks Juan!


    One more time though...for the other bioses (?) I have...do I need to be running the bios I need modded to generate the
    report? I am working on my desktop, HTPC, and net book so I have 3 separate bioses (?) to submit.

    Thanks again!!

    For AMI and Award Bios Mods it isn't needed to modify the Bios.
    For Phoenix, Insyde, etc. type Bios Mods you need to flash the bios to be modified before you create the R/W Everything Report.
