Why can't I compress this ACPI2.ROM module?
You meant the TCPA table? It becomes compressed! To compress doesn't mean to decrease the size because prepare also has to add the module header.:
At rom.scr means: (to edit with notepad)
COMPRESS LZINT (to compress any following module)
parameter -X (disables compression)
At a compressed module you cannot read the OEMIDs anymore like Lenovo cb-01 and TCPA
If you re-run the edited rom.scr
ACPI ACPI2.ROM -X
and have a look at the new created ACPI2.MOD you'll see that the table remains original (header added only)
To compress is a sort of 'encryption'
thanks, i understand what all that means... i created the files , except rom.scr of course... it's there to show my command was correct
I ask because I get this PBE error (attached pic) after I insert the acpi2.mod into the bios.
It may have something to do with the size; rom.log says the size should be 4Bh. The compressed module is 4Dh. If this is the case, then it is a compression problem, right?, since I didn't add any bytes, just altered them?
How do I insert the modified acpi.rom (acpi2.mod) into the bios without getting this error?
but yeah, i want the TCPA table to match the bios...
mess with the creator id to make it compress to original size...
worked like a charm
you're very welcome...
