    Hi All,

    Is it possible to integrate modded BIOS to a certain virtual machine?

    I requested BIOS mod from the forum, but the thing is I'm afraid of messing up my machine's BIOS and having no way to recover it, so I have not updated my BIOS yet.

    If there is a way to integrate modded BIOS to certain VMs, even modded BIOS does not work properly, we do not have to worry about anything of our PCs, and we just need to reinstall VMs.

    If modded BIOS works well in VMs, then we could update BIOS with no worries.

    I am looking forward to having a positive response:)

    VM bios modding is different from bios modding your machine i,e, you are modding the VMware.exe or virtual pc.exe file not the virtual machine so bios modded for VMware for example can't be used to flash your machine bios. There is a VMware patcher posted here. VMware Workstation (Multi-Brand) Bios Installer

    Thanks for your answer.

    But I wonder: is it the time for some organizations to write a new VM to meet ours need? :D:D:D
