    Hi guys,

    sorry to bother you with something like this, but I’ve tried everything (reading lots of tutorials & searching Google to no avail) and just don’t get behind this problem. I’m trying to extract “NCPUCODE.BIN” from a BIOS file (see attached jpg) with CBrom version 1.15 using the string:

    cbrom115 SOURCE.BIN /cpucode extract
    -or-
    cbrom115 SOURCE.BIN /nc_cpucode extract

    But nothing works :( I don’t understand what “(SP)” means in the item list, I'm guessing it's uncompressed data within the BIOS. Could you please give me a hint on how to extract that file? Furthermore, do I need a special string to implement the extracted NCPUCODE.BIN to my destination BIOS? I would do it this way:

    cbrom115 DESTINATION.BIN /vc_cpucode (or just /cpucode)

    Thank you so much in advance for your help and your time. :worthy:

    Best regards,

    G.

    Hello

    We have successfully extracted NCPUCODE.BIN out of award bioses over at *****no ads***** If you would like to request a CPU Support bios modification we can attempt to replace the microcode from another bios to add CPU Support.

    To add the ID of the CPU to be supported should do the trick, no need for another bios..
