no take error, simply doesn't change the module

Send me all the files you are using (Not MMTool), just the BIOS and memory modules etc. And include a short text of what you want done, ie put this #1 + #2 module into xx BIOS.
I'll see if I can figure it out for you. Have you read that you can simply swap this "Memsizing" modules from one BIOS to another? If yes, please link me to the guide/mention of it if you can so I can see what all they discussed

this user has modded p5q bios and inside that bioses has modded mem sizing table.
only can extract one memory sizing module, there are tqo as you have watch in my pic, the memory sizing in ebb only can extract and edit, if u can understand why cannot extract the other module, if u watch in hex editor, the bios has two offset, finalizing from this root: Z:\Eaglelake_MRC\OUT32\MEMINIT.pdb
i thinking to add the memory sizing of maximus II formula or p5q pro turbo
can find two bioses, maximus formula and p5q deluxe.
the difference between is for dimensions in mmtool.
maybe there are more information in M2F memory sizing

p.s sorry for my bad english

Thanks @pipes80 , I will check it out at XS Forum. Did they change out both, maybe only one needs changed out?
Yes, I was considering maybe change out in hex if MMTool can't do it.

Why not use the BIOS already modified from XS Forum?

I check with MMTool 3.26, and can extract both of those modules, but you cannot replace second one (MMTool says not editable module).
I compared extracted files and they are exact same, but size is clearly different in MMTool view, so I don't think it's extracting second one either, only always first one (Same with MAX II BIOS as well)

Witg MMTool 3.22_1B_21Fix, I can replace first module and when I extract second one it is the correct new size larger one I inserted. Second one starting at 1B4000 does not look same at all, and does not start with MZ (4d 5a), that may be why it can't be edited with tool.
You can manually copy from MAX II BIOS second location, to P5Q second location, be sure to update header size twice before this entry when replacing (Backwards)
If you replace second module via hex it can't open in MMTool after that, maybe checksum error? Often Meminit is sensitive module?

Did you test on motherboard, to see if problem solved, with only editing the first module?

Yes, i know the problem after hex mod, but i have not try the bios mod with hex if u watch size in mmtool can watch more big size maybe there is more support? Although seeing the document QVL memory is with greater support RAM 1200 MHz by the P5Q Pro Turbo.
Maybe it won't do any good or maybe improve the compatibility and stability of the Patriot Ram 1200 MHz for benchmark
Yes,I have tested with p5q pro turbo with memory sizing inject work fine.
Was much more curiosity about the difference after changing both modules

#141 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 01.11.2018 16:31


if I edit with hex all two modules, can will obtain same result and can work?

#142 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by Lost_N_BIOS 02.11.2018 09:07


If you edit both in hex it breaks the BIOS. I think you only need to update the first one, then test.

#143 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 02.11.2018 22:32


I can't find mmtool 3.26, i thinking to edit a memory sizing of p4c800-e extracted from p4c800-e but with mmtool 3.12 3.19 3.22 i receive error.
i can't try with mmtool 3.26 because no find the download

#144 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by Lost_N_BIOS 03.11.2018 08:41


I'll send you a PM with 3.26

#145 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 03.11.2018 15:28


thx very much man

#146 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 03.11.2018 15:32


mmtool 3.26 say 15dh is not editable

#147 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by Lost_N_BIOS 04.11.2018 08:05


I mentioned that already

I'll send you PM with other 3.xx I have

#148 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 04.11.2018 12:35


solved, i have delete german language

#149 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by Lost_N_BIOS 05.11.2018 09:10


So, german language module was making insert not possible, or it was taking up too much room for the insert? Either way, good find and solution!

#150 RE: [Guide] AMI (non-UEFI) BIOS Modding by pipes80 05.11.2018 22:03


I do not know what was needed but I still think it was full and then you could no longer add modules and bits more than those already occupied by the Rom
