    I think "Hewlett-Packard" is pretty much standard for HP OEMBIOS files. An oembios file can have many different OEM strings as far as I know. I think "HP Pavilion" or "Compaq" works just as well.

    Can someone provide some further help on Award Bios's

    When I use dmicfg, it wants a "*.dmi" file

    How do I go from a typical Award BIOS xxxx.bin to a .dmi file?

    eg say I have 0405.bin for some MB, how do I get the .dmi file

    Then when I have edited the .dmi file, how do I get it back into the .bin?

    Sorry for what I suspect are very basic questions!
    Help appreciated
    Jeff

    just boot to dos and run dmicfg. it'll modify your dmi in realtime. just set the string and hit f10 to apply it. you can use everest to verify

    Question about OEMBIOS

    Hi All

    New here and trying to understand the good work here.

    Have worked out how to prepare OS with OEMBIOS files
    and winnt, setupp and oobe.
    Made OS and works.

    Did not no of the SLIC part required and trying best to understand.
    I ask if someone could help me understand, to explain in simple way
    what I do now with the moded SLIC thing (Its a little hard for me to understand)


    I have found that Fzeven has moded Gigabyte GA-8S661FXM-775 rev2.
    Many thanks to Fzeven.
    My Motherboard is GA-8S661FXM-775 "rev1" I think, will this work for me?
    And any body to offer help to apply this would be great.

    Thankyou if you can be patient with me.
    littleone.

    I was wrong about this topic. XP simply uses dmi. Get dmicfg and program to your liking and you'll be all set. With vista, you'd need rsdt/slic though.
