thank you for your answer. I dont use any RAID and even dont have this option inside BIOS and therefore it really dont make any sesne to replace it. I was more curious about the SVGA PCI ROMs which are there but from the links you posted before it looks not like a easy task :)
regarding the DEV 2925, i found the identification here: http://boot.salstar.sk/pxelinux.cfg/pci.ids. Anyway, iam just telling what i have found there and to be honest i have not much idea why there is the id like it is.
2925 82801IR/IO (ICH9R/DO) SATA Controller [RAID mode]
1734 10e0 System Board D2542
8086 2925 System Board D2542
As for the information about the computer, its the DEL XPS one 2010. Some information about it:
- Chipset: P35/G33/G31
- Southbridge: 82801IH (ICH9DH)
- Intel(R) ICH9 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 2922
nice guide, thank you. One question to it, i found 4 PCI option ROM inside my BIOS via MMTOOL but where to find any updates for them? Any suggestion how and where to search? The new PCI option ROM have to have the same DEV/VEN ids inside his HEX code, right?
Description of the PCI modules:
ID 20 (PCI Option ROM), 8086:2925, Intel RAID for SATA v18.104.22.1681
ID 20 (PCI Option ROM), 8086:294C, Intel Boot Agent v1.2.50
ID 20 (PCI Option ROM), 8086:29C2, Intel Q33/Q35/G33 PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS Build Number: 1471
ID 20 (PCI Option ROM), 8086:29C3, Intel Q33/Q35/G33 PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS Build Number: 1471
hoped that someone will give some hint but anyway, i tried to dig into it myself. I read some tutorials about wifi whitelist and how to replace the card inside the whitelist with a new one...simply, just change the DEV/VEN and SUBSYS ids... sounds simple anyway :). I found the Ids for the ATI card, Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C9&SUBSYS_02261028&REV_00, see attached picture (the last highlighted string is the DEV/VEN for the inbuilt Intel card) and changed them to the nVidia card, Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_065C&SUBSYS_30E7103C&REV_A1. However, i found that the SUBSYS is there multiple times... ok what now. I got a SPI reader to read out the BIOS just in any case but for some reasons while using the recovery pins its impossible. I tried to power the Atmel chip externally but still no readings. I would have to solder the BIOS out and for this i dont have the mood, its really impossible to get there without disassembling the whole computer. Anyway, i tried to flash the BIOS with changed Ids (DEV/VEN and SUBSYS as highlighted on the picture) but the nVidia card is still not working and moreover the ATI card is still working :) iam lost here,,, have no idea what to do next, any ideas?
thank you for your warm welcome. I really hope that someone will / can point me the right way to solve this. It cant be so dificult even though it looks so at this moment :) just crossing fingers and trying to find some information in the mean time but at this moment i warent lucky to find anything useful.
