    Thank you for your reply but my issue isn't with seeing the tables in the existing BIOS on the server. Those tables already exist (I think it's 2.2 or 2.3 right now). My issue is with trying to modify the HDR file from Dell to an updated SLIC version (2.5). Whenever I try processing the HDR file from the BIOS extract through PhoenixTool 2.73, I get the error "HDR checksum not correct" and the tool stops processing the file. I've tried multiple versions of the BIOS from Dell's site and I've tried multiple versions of the PhoenixTool and the last 2 or 3 versions fail with "HDR checksum not correct" which is why I posted in this thread to see if someone else with more experience could mod that BIOS. Also, this isn't a 13th gen server, it's a 12th gen.

    Hmmm, that's disappointing then. So I guess this means the bios cannot be modified, correct?
