First section says incorrect BIOS for the system, second check says ROM ID OK. To me this means the BIOS mod is failed probably. That could be true, bad mod, or could simply be due to modified BIOS not compatible with that flashing program and you'll have to use another flash program.

I cannot check BIOS now, but will tonight. Please let me know what ALL you need updated exactly and I will look at the BIOS and do the mod without UBU, then you can try same methods with safuwin and my BIOS file, then you will know if BIOS Mod was bad or simply any modified BIOS not compatible with the safuwin flashing tool.

OK, so that is a lot of mods. Please upload all your modification files in a zip so I can put in BIOS my way (not with UBU)
So, SATA rom, your updated settings transfered vBIOS and GOP driver, and network rom (I can do microcodes on my own, no need to include)

Also, include your modified BIOS so I can see if anything is obviously wrong or anything sticks out as maybe being the cause. Like it said, it could be fine BIOS mod, just not flashable with that tool due to being modified
This is often the case with OEM like HP or Dell, even common with big brands like Asus and Asrock etc

Please also give link or full model name for your HP system, so I can download stock BIOS from HP

I assume for now, safuwin is not going to flash a modified BIOS, you need to look a using AFU directly or Intel FPT (Flash Programming Tool)

I will be able to answer the 8MB 4MB question once I can download the stock BIOS. How are you making the 4MB backup?

@lazzaronetu

Try this.

Your backup bios is only the "BIOS REGION", that's the reason why it's only 4 Megabyte big instead of 8 MB.

I've replaced the bios region of the native bios with your backup and added mod files as requested, plus all cpu microcodes updated.

You can't use safuwin.exe being a modded bios !!!! You have to use AFUDOS from a Pure DOS environment.

You will need the engineering version with /GAN support or /p /b /n /c syntax support in order to flash the whole bios chip.

Maybe AFUDOS is not compatible with your HP. Did you try from DOS to dump bios ? I think you have the flash descriptors locked. :(

I have not afudos Engineering version mate.

I think hp have some bios protection and only with your safuwin.exe tool is possible to load bios.

hope a guru member of this forum have solution for this
