    Hi all,

    I have an Asus K40IE. The BIOS file I have download from the Asus website is 1MB and it is probably why I cannot open it with CBROM 2.20. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's an AMI Bios NOT an Award Bios.
    CBRom is for AWARD Bios files NOT AMI.
    Try MMTool (included with the AMI Slic Tool).

    Run MMTool and load a ROM file then extract the Module you want extracted.

    To integrate the Video BIOS into the existing BIOS you have to do the following steps:

    1) Read out the existing BIOS on your target (run AFUDOS.EXE /oORIGINAL.ROM or AFUWIN.EXE /oORIGINAL.ROM)

    2) Start MMTOOL

    3) Open the BIOS from Step 1 by using "Load ROM"

    4) Go to the Replace Tab

    5) Select Module 20, PCI OPTION ROM with Size 10000h (65536 Bytes)

    6) Browse for your Video BIOS generated with IEGD

    7) Press "Replace"

    8) Save the modified BIOS to a new file (BIOS.ROM)

    I hope this tips also helpful you.
