    Hi,

    I was trying to modify a BIOS file by myself.
    -so I have downloaded Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 bios ver. F11B ( http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/BIOS/motherboard_bios_ga-m57sli-s4_f11b.exe )
    -changed file's extension to BIN
    -opened it with modbin6.exe
    -opened ORIGINAL.BIN with WinHex

    But there is no 'RSDT' string in the ORIGINAL.BIN file.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I know older version of this BIOS got modded so .. dunno what's wrong

    Thanks a lot for any advice

    I bought a Gigabyte M61P motherboard in June and I have the same problem. When I tried to mod the BIOS, there is no RSDT string.

    ANY ACPI bios has got a RSDT table!!! RSDT table is a important table!!! If you want to edit it you have to extract acpi table with cbrom182.

    It's only the way to programm the table that differs. (Call of table) Gigabytes bioses from Award are easily to mod using ISA method. You are referring to a method that is out of date.

    Use general Award method 4a, very easy........

    :eek: Okay, sorry about that. I just assumed it wasn't there since you couldn't just hex edit the BIOS file like in the old method.
