Dear fellow modders, I've stumbled upon this 889LCD/ATX - Kontron mainboard. It's a few years old Intel 915G + ICH6 socket LGA775 board. M/B info : https://www.kontron.com/support-and-services/support/downloads?product_id=87287 I'm trying to do two things 1) somehow get windows 10 running on it (which seems to fail so far, possibly due to driver issues which I am still investigating) 2) Install a modded XEON (LGA771->775) CPU The latter proved more of a challenge than I expected. In terms of the physical mod it's a breeze, I've done that a few times now. However this board, unlike many others doesn't even like to post. I assume it's due to lack of microcode in the BIOS for this type of CPU. Using the regular intelmicrocodelist tool I can see which microcodes are currently present. However using CBROM (v195) I was unable to update/add them. I also tried various other CBROM tool versions but they just seem to lockup anytime I point it to the BIOS binary and tell it to modify that. Could that have to do with it being an OEM unique BIOS ?? I have read somewhere it should be possible to manually hack microcodes into a binary file with a hex editor because the microcodes are non compressed. But after some searching I couldn't find any useful info or tutorial to even make an attempt at doing that myself. Anyone out there that can help or give me some useful pointers to try and take on this 'just for the heck of it kinda challenge' ?
