Usually that means you have to enable chipset first, via user in AMIBCP + 1 or 2 other methods (change suppress if true to false if present in IFR right before "Form: Chipset", if not see next method), then do the magic string edit (I assume you know this one, it's the 0101010001 to 0101010101 type edit).
For that last method, you need to compare stock image of BIOS vs what you see in top of setup module IFR to find initial 010100010001 string.

thanks for reply, bios is graphical Aptio V, and i think high level menus hard located on screen , this is why i want to rearrange sub-menu. Example of gigabyte bios screen:

high level menu in amibcp 5:

Security disabled in IFR Suppress (If {0A 82} True {46 02})

i will continue research this thing and try replace security link to pch-fw for example

I think language barrier is getting us , it's OK. I think I get what you mean, you want to re-arrange menu orders

Two things to enable Security if you wanted, of course you know already set "User" in AMIBCP, if that does not work still, change IFR Suppress (If {0A 82} True {46 02}) >> To Suppress (If {0A 82} False {47 02}) (Change 46 to 47 will auto change text to False)

PCH-FW, you can enable I think without having to move around, set "User" in AMIBCP, did you try and that doesn't show up?

I see that before @Haplo - please link to the BIOS download package for your system thanks.
Also, I tried to view your images, it's too blurry, too cropped etc, please put all those images uncut into a zip file and upload for me so I can view each one separately and at full size, thanks


This is the Stock BIOS

@Lost_N_BIOS, This is the Stock BIOS

Thanks, all around! And thanks, the images are good enough now for me to see what I couldn't before.

I'll dig into this tonight when I get back online for you! Also, you never said, what exact options did you enable previously, that DID show up in BIOS for you?

#216 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Haplo 22.10.2018 16:24

@Lost_N_BIOS , I changed ALL the options that were shown in AMIBCP (a truly lot of them...), an as you can see. The only new options shown in BIOS are:

1-the options for the differents passwords, mainly for the HDDs
2-"Low Voltage" in Advanced
3-"Enable keypad", "Touch Pad mouse", "Option ROM Messages" and "Set Active Display" in Boot Section
4-Intel Debug in "Exit" (but fullt empty),

If you re-arrange those, do they change in the BIOS structure in AMIBCP or in actual BIOS? If yes, maybe test your PCH edit there too and see what happens.

Do you just need change setting in the PCH-FW section? If yes, and AMIBCP cannot do, you can edit via IFR/Hex and change the default setting.

@Haplo - I needed to know which actually showed up in BIOS for you. The main reason all the others don't is you need to enable the main/root of the section to be visible first, then rest can be enabled and often do not need to be set to "User" at all once root/main section is made visible.
I cannot download your modified BIOS though, only PDF's shown at the link you provided. However, I do not need it anyway, only letting you know.

I need to see your stock Exit page. You sent me image of current modified one I think (Since debug is shown, this is modified BIOS Image)
I need to see stock image of how exit BIOS page looks, so I can tell which exit in BIOS is used, there is two and I need to know which one stock BIOS is using before I can do anything.
Same for "Boot" this is modified Boot section image. I need all stock BIOS images please, you said you flashed many times and are used to it, please reflash stock BIOS and give me all new images of stock BIOS like I requested, otherwise I cannot help.
Same for advanced too. So, again, please flash stock BIOS, and send me all new images of each section, put in a zip like last time too, thanks!

I'm sorry if this is a hassle for you to take new images, it's a 100% requirement from my end, otherwise I cannot start modification due to not being able to know which sections the stock BIOS used for those areas I wont be able to find menu sting to enable all menus
It also helps me, once found and I can enable all menu sections, we remove visibility for some of the duplicates so you don't have two boot, advanced, and exit pages. I think I found now, but need to see stock images, so I can tell which to enable/disable, so you don't have dupes for no reason with same/similar settings.

#219 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Haplo 23.10.2018 10:52

Hallo @Lost_N_BIOS , this is not a hassle for me, I apreciate very much your help. By the moment I send you a recopilation of Stock BIOS Images I have found in Internet. They are EXACTLY the same my Stock BIOS.

In any case, If you think you need the truly images, I have to wait untill to tonight to have access to my laptop.

Thanks again

#220 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Lost_N_BIOS 23.10.2018 12:19

Thanks for your understanding! Yes, I need the images because I have to compare what I see in your BIOS, vs what's in AMIBCP, and figure out which sections are actually there vs which are not in AMIBCP vs the BIOS, then use that in the setup module to find a long string of 0's and 1's that equal the actual enabled menu's on the stock BIOS.
Once I see that, I can unlock all menus, like you see in AMIBCP, and a few are doubles which we'll disable the ones with less in it (mainly boot, security, original Advanced)

I can use those images you attached, if you are 100% sure it's all exact same as your stock BIOS.

#221 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Haplo 23.10.2018 12:53

If you prefer @Lost_N_BIOS I will upload the truly imeges tonight or tomorrow morning as very last

#222 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Lost_N_BIOS 23.10.2018 13:05

I can use those images @Haplo if you are sure they are same ones. Looking at BIOS now, I think I will leave 2 x Advanced menu, since your default one has a few settings that aren't in any of the large advanced sections. And exit, I will disable your default one, and enable the currently hidden one, it has all the same settings + more options.
Security menu, I am not sure, both look a lot alike, but many of each is useless password entries for secondary drives you'll probably never use. The current hidden one shows a lot more info for the drives status vs the currently visible one you have now, so I'd probably go with that one personally. Both for Boot menu too I think.
I will enable Main and Chipset too.

So this is your current BIOS layout vs what you can see in AMIBCP - 00 means disabled/not visible to you - 01 means your current menu/enabled/visible to you now.
main = 00
advanced = 00
chipset = 00
boot = 00
security = 00
save & exit = 00
SysInfo = 01
Advanced = 01
Security = 01
Boot = 01
Exit = 01

Considering best changes would be this (All/most settings in each menu will become visible to you like you see in AMIBCP, some need setting above changed from auto before one directly below will become visible, so you don't have to set user on all that)
And, some settings you may still need to enable via AMIBCP once I send you BIOS, main thing is once the root menu is enabled some automatically appear and do not need "User" set in AMIBCP, so I will leave that up to you to double check and further enable, since I can't test on my end and it's not ideal to set all "User" when you don't have to for the ones that would automatically show up anyway. So please before you edit anything I send you with AMIBCP, flash the BIOS and look at all the pages, sections, then decide/check what you need to further enable (Don't jump right into AMIBCP to set things to "User" first when you see I haven't, you may not need to)

Change BIOS menus to (These are the menus you see in AMIBCP, in that same order)

main = 01
advanced = 01
chipset = 01
boot = 01
security = 01
save & exit = 01
SysInfo = 01
Advanced = 01
Security = 00
Boot = 01
Exit = 00

Sound good to you?

#223 RE: Help yo unlock BIOS hidden settings in my Samsung RC530/730 by Haplo 23.10.2018 13:50

Ok @Lost_N_BIOS , it is perfect for me. With all the menus enabled, and the possibility to show/hide its options by me, trough AMIBCP, its prefetly Ok.

One more thing, only to learn for future. In this list, Where are thoses codes "00" and "01" seen?. In AMIBCP, in AMI Setup...?

Thanks again

I have successfully edited the menu structure of aptio V and checked on hardware bios. Text and visibility are stored in the IFR, the structure and links "menu->submenu" are stored separately in the AMITSESetupData module ($SPF signature at the beginning of the file)
Now "cpu-configuration", "pch-fw", "system agent", "pch-io" are submenu of Peripherals, three useless "trusted computing" submenus are replaced by the desired
