    Hello everyone :)

    I have MSI P55-GD80 motherboard (AMI). I would love to know, why has rom saved by the motherboard different file size than the one downloaded from MSI website. Why is MSI's 4 MB and motherboard's 2 MB? Is it possible, some data got lost or something?

    - File size of rom downloaded from MSI website is 4 194 304 b (cannot be opened with MMTool)
    - File size of rom saved by the motherboard is 2 094 152 b (works with MMTool)

    I am total noob, when it comes to modding bios so please bare with me. So far just changed EPA logo in Award bios.
