Hi SoniX,

thanks for all the work you put into ubu, it has kept my trusty z77 board up to date for over 1 year.

I recently updated my VBIOS following your guide and I have a question:
How can I tell if I actually updated the vbios ? If I compare the vbiossib.dat I created myself with the vbios.dat that I extracted from my original BIOS, the MD5 sum is identical.
If I open both files in the Intel BMP utility, VBT version is also identical (174). I have the ASRock Z77 Pro4, is it possible that the vbios from the latest official BIOS is the latest one ?
I have an Ivy Bridge 3570k CPU. I already updated the entire BIOS with ubu (my modified vbiossib.dat was present in modules\vga in ubu folder) and the Board and iGPU are working fine.

EDIT by Fernando: Post moved to a thread about the similar topic and blank lines removed (to save space)

@ kokett:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Since you had posted into a thread, which is only designed for the UBU guide and the UBU updates done by SoniX, I have moved it here. The topic of this thread matches the best your question.

Regards
Dieter (alias Fernando)

@Sonix

Thanks for the help. I'm using main BIOS 9903 though, it was provided to me by ASUS as a beta BIOS to fix the EFI boot issue I was having. If it contains the same extracted vBIOS as main BIOS 3601, can I simply use the v2170 OROM that you modified?

@kevindd992002
9903? Please send this version 9903 BIOS, I'll see if there is a change in VBIOS version.

Sorry, but what do i have to do with that now?

Use UBU tool -> put those files in VGA folder?

EDIT: I just did that and now i've a second option:



I choose #2 right?

Yes.

#30 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by zt3 27.06.2015 23:33

Alright, i think that now everything's done properly and it's safe to flash it with the bios.bin.



Thanks for your help @SoniX !

EDIT: Flashed without any problem.



Thank you once again!
