    I have an HP Pavilion dm3-1060ef Entertainment Notebook PC which I flashed using the Crisis file option (Window + B). So after reboot I got an error message says:

    Product Information is not valid
    The Following product information programmed into the system board is missing or invalid
    System Board (00A) - Product Name
    System Board (00A) - Product Configuration
    System Board (00A) - Product Serial Number
    System Board (00A) - Product Number

    ENTER - Continue Setup

    For more information please visit hp.com\go\techcenter\startup

    So I created a usb flash bootable Win98 DOS, added to it DMI EDIT v2.00.43

    I can change Type 0, Type 2 & Type 3 BIOS information, & ONLY Manufacturer in Type 1

    (Product Name, Product Configuration ID, Product Version, Product Serial Number, Warranty Start Date & UUID (Universal Unique ID) in Type 1 are Write Protected)

    I found a method to decode the part encoded with LZMA in INSYDE BIOSes, & all data int that decoded part of INSYDE BIOS are visible
    I am wondering, where could be the offset of HP OEM data information (Product Name, Product Configuration ID, Product Version, Product Serial Number, Warranty Start Date & UUID), so I can write it directly to that part of BIOS & encode it, & insert it back the original BIOS file
    Help Me Please. :worthy:

    Thank you anyway
