    Was thinking this would make a useful MDL project for anyone with the right knowledge.

    There are a few BIOS dumping tools out there but none specific to this task as yet.

    The image could then be used in replacement for the standard W8 flag on systems without UEFI.

    A dumper/injector would be nice, anyone have a clue how this can be done?


    Thanks...

    Thanks for that.

    Not on an UFI PC right now so can you say where you go on that program to save the image resource as a file please?

    Some UEFI BIOS gives the option to disable this function anyway. Have you checked?
