    If you go to the mod your own bios sticky and scroll down to award. Look at method 1 and that should answer your question. They probably used that method. I did the same for my msi.

    You are confusing two deferent metods.
    The one I used hear is the ISA metod.
    The metod where you edit the ACPI table and add the adress at the end of RSDT and/or XSDT is the oem7 metod.

    Ok thank you.

    So what are the functional differences between the two methods?

    And is the Isa method litrially just a OEM ISA added to the end of bios? Where do the ISA's Come from.

    Thanks

    Ok,

    Thank You for that link, it has helped me understand it a bit better.

    If i was to try a different method, is there some sort of "bios emulator" you can download, to see if the bios is still going to boot and not brick the mother board?

    THanks

    bios emulator is the best think that a member of this and similar forums can have.
    But till now I havent heard of one...:(
    Let say that you have a bios emulator...
    You have to take note that it will have to be updated daily, couse new hardware is released daily.
    So the emulator will have to be updated, to be able to emulate deferent componetns (boards).
