    As you wish . . .

    Google: - edit bios dmi data - and you will get many viable options depending on just what it is you seek to edit within the DMI.

    Hi,

    I'd like to chnage the DMI Information in my System.
    It is annoying to see "To be filled by OEM" in system analysis tools like AIDA or Everest. Thus I want to customize it with my own information, but I couldn't find no info about how to do it. I suppose it can be done in the file "MSSMBIOS" but I cannot edit that file. Neither with Editor or Notepad nor with an HexEditor!

    thanks,

    Depends on the bios. Award or AMI..dmicfg.exe is a nice tool

    Which type of bios, and the bios version. You should absolutely be able to change with hex editor. Thats how we do all of them at the moment. The only exception is Intel ITK bios and the Insyde ones. UEFI is another animal, I think it will be a while...Most are hybrids now, if they say EFI.

    Ok I figured it out. Since I was using dmicfg.exe within WinXP it wasn't allowing me to change the info. I found a copy of Hiren's Boot CD 8.9, loaded it up, loaded Hwinfo to take a look at things, and then exited hwinfo. I then went into the menu (pressing m to get there) and went into BIOS/CMOS tools. Fired up DMICFG.exe and changed the chassis, board, and manufacturer info wherever possible....

    It stuck, and now works perfectly. I was getting the freedos error because apparently freedos has some problem with older K6-2 processors, and bios routines. (It was unable to read the hard-disk)
