    Hi,

    I am trying to boot my little Intellibook using PXE. I already upgraded to the latest available BIOS ( ftp : //cftp.clevo.com.tw/ALLBIOS/M110x/M110x_0603.zip ), but still the PXE ROM included is not working properly - it is from the year 2000.

    Therefore I would like to replace the PXE ROM part in the BIOS with the gPXE ROM from here ( http : //rom-o-matic.net/gpxe/gpxe-1.0.1/contrib/rom-o-matic/ ).
    Here I select "ROM binary (flashable)", NIC "jmc", PCI VENDOR CODE "197b" PCI DEVICE CODE "0260".

    Unfortunately I am not able to identify the original PXE ROM code to replace it with the gPXE ROM.

    Can please somebody help?

    Thanks
    Tante

    The PXE is OPROM02.ROM module in ECM1100.03 & M110_06.WPH (identical) lengh C800 = 51,200 bytes

    Used PhoenixTool to dump it

    Now idea why it is 2 step upgrade process

    Hi sebus,
    thanks for the quick reply!

    I used now PhoenixBiosEditor2.2.13.zip from h p : www . bios-mods . com /downloads / to replace OPROM02.ROM with the gPXE. And it actually said that the build rom process was successful for M110_06.WPH. Is there anyway to verify if the BIOS will work before flashing?

    Do I need to modify ECM1100.03 as well?

    Thanks

    Using VBinDiff comparing ECM1100.03 with M110_06.WPH I can see that there are differences. What is the reason for that two step upgrade process with two different files? Maybe I just boot using a small old USB Stick with gPXE on it :-(

    I would use PhoenixTool to replace the module (Advanced/Allow user modification of modules) in BOTH and see it is builds fine
