    Some additional information about flashing.

    I did notice an issue when doing multiple like models. The MAC Address under the Intel Image>GbE Region and Intel Image>ME Region will obviously be identical as was captured in the original BIOS dump. Having multiple machines on the network with identical MAC caused me headaches. So far, editing the BIOS bin file prior to flashing to include unique MAC kills the NIC and makes it unavailable. My current workaround is to use the 'layouts' feature with flashrom and only write to the area contained in the VSS_store. This will leave everything in the Descriptor, GbE and ME regions intact.

    Also note: As far as I know, there is no way to retrieve the original MAC from the NIC once flashed. Using flashrom to read the MAC address from BIOS and write that to file before flashing is how I have been making sure I preserve the data. Of course none of this is needed when using layouts.

    Hi Mazzif,

    this is exactly what I've been looking for. I have an EliteBook Folio 9470m. I can provide the UUID and SN, but I'm new to MDL so can't PM yet... Can I PM you through Youtube?

    Cheers
