    I can’t find nubie section so I am asking for help.
    I am a retired (66yo) hardware design engineer (inventor) / troubleshooter on a limited budget.
    Always built my own systems and purchased os for every computer.
    I am trying to understand bios mods for winxp/win7/whs, authenticate strings and keys.
    I need someone who can be patient with me when I ask dumb questions in my quest to learn.
    I prefer baby steps in learning.

    For winxp/win7/whs:
    Mods in bios are just one block of bytes that are changed? or multiple locations and multiple byte size?
    Fixed location or stuffed in blank/unused areas?
    Checksum and/or CRC bytes also need to be changed??
    Any suggested program to read bin files to/from hexadecimal files?

    Thanks,
    Ray
