    Hi guys

    Recently i've bought an Intel Desktop Board DX79TO, which came with the 0281 BIOS. As i've found, it's only compatible with the i7-3930K and the i7-3960X, so when I put my Xeon E5-2650 it won't even boot or anything. I have the chip dump in .bin, 8192KB, and the best i could do was finding some strings with the name of the processor, but i'm unable to delimtate where the microcode starts or something, so i can't replace anything because, obviously, i'd break the file. The compressed file is still to large for the page, so i couldn't put it here.

    The board is in a shop, they had the equipment to unsolder the chip and get the data so when i have a good .bin, it will be good. To have a reference, i have opened it with Hex Workshop, that's the tool that let me view the "Intel Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz" string and so, but a'm very doubtful that changing the string makes any difference, so t'hats why I come here, because i have seen there's such an experts.

    Thanks in advance!!

    (OP)
    Yes, i know that, but since there are one single 2011 socket based platform at around 10km round, and it's mine, it very dificult to get a 3930K or a 3960X to be able to update my BIOS. Even for loaning it, i didn't find anything. The only one i found for sale is a 3930K at 200€ and a 3960X at 700€, and i won't pay 200/700€ for a bios update, of course.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, the bios won't be updated trough standard procedure, the chip is unsoldered and is being programmed through an SPI programmer (That's why the board is in a shop) so when the board is working with my cpu, then i'll update to 0650 by the standard way - As it should be.
