    I have an Asrock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer

    The download updates from their website are self extracting or instant flash. I've tried the usual winrar/Universal Extractor without luck, and the instant flash isn't a rom renamed.

    Link to 1.10 downloads asrock.com/mb/Intel/Fatal1ty%20Z87%20Killer/?cat=Download&os=BIOS

    This is an AMI BIOS so I tried to use afuwin and afudos, afuwin freezes my computer as soon as I run it, and running afudos /Oxxx.rom also freezes my computer.

    How can I get my rom file?

    ok that was it. As a sanity check, can I confirm I'm doing this right.

    1. load my rom file into Phoenix/efi Bios Mod Tool
    2. defaults to module, but when i put my rw file it, it changes to SSV2
    ssv2 says unable to insert slic, so I select module, says completed.
    3. flash output with afudos slic.rom

    Thanks.

    H61M-DGS EFI already contains a partial dummy SLIC. So we have to use Dynamic method to replace it dynamically. Also, older ASRock EFIs don't have any security check.

    :)

    Correct Tito,
    Code:
    LZMA and Tiano module compression methods used
    EFI / Insyde BIOS
    Recovery filenames are: 
    
    H61MDGS*.*
    AS621.ROM
    'SLIC' string found in 4C494E55-5849-5342-4554-544552212121_969.ROM at 74F
    69009842-63F2-43DB-964B-EFAD1C39EC85_973.ROM is an empty module of 182 bytes
    996AA1E0-1E8C-4F36-B519-A170A206FC14_975.ROM is an empty module of 157 bytes
    

    Just thought Phoenix tool would then have defaulted to Dynamic since partial slic was found.

    (OP)
    Hmm, seems like mine also has a partial slic. Should I use dynamic instead, or is there some kind of security check that requires module in newer ASrock EFIs?

    Noop, you don't have any partial SLIC, just some SLIC strings. Partial SLIC symptom:
    Code:
    69009842-63F2-43DB-964B-EFAD1C39EC85_973.ROM is an empty module of 182 bytes
    996AA1E0-1E8C-4F36-B519-A170A206FC14_975.ROM is an empty module of 157 bytes
