Not critical. Anyway, the video core is built on SkyLake.

I just did not keep track of which version of the OROM they added CFL support, so I did not change anything.So if you see that GOP with support for CFL, then OROM also supports CFL.

Got it, thanks!

In the "Table VBT OROM VBIOS Version and Size.docx" file, I see that the latest vBIOS version for SKL-KBL is 1047-1062. Since I already have 1063 on the original BIOS, that means that I have the latest version, correct?

Also, there's a specific CFL section in the table where the latest version is 1007-1017. Why doesn't my original BIOS (from ASUS website) use that? Does it even matter?

Are VBIOS OROM and GOP driver version related? I have a skylake system. When I upgrade GOP driver to 9.0.1080 I got no image during boot with VBIOS OROM 1028
I now updated VBIOS OROM to 1062, would this change anything if I try upgrading the GOP driver again to v9.0.1080?

OROM VBIOS and EFI GOP Driver are not connected in any way.
OROM VBIOS is used only in CSM mode.
EFI GOP Driver only in UEFI mode.
Also.
OROM VBIOS has a built-in VBT.
EFI GOP Driver, for work, uses an external WBT file.

@kevindd992002

Version 1063 supports SKL-CFL. The following versions of CFL (1001-1023) may support AML and CML, but I'm not so sure there is no information.
Let me remind you that it makes no sense to change files if they are not used.

@snixel

I do not quite understand what the problem is?

#276 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by kevindd992002 05.09.2019 18:25

@SoniX

Yes, I understand that when one runs their systems in complete UEFI mode (CSM disabled and secure boot enabled), the EFI GOP driver is what's important but I was just curious about the OROM VBIOS latest version. Is 1063 the latest for SKL-CFL though?

@kevindd992002

The latter is 1065, but we do not have files to work with versions 1063-1065.

@SoniX

So the OROM VBIOS isn't used in any way if you run in complete UEFI mode? Also not when the OS is loaded?
I'm trying to upgrade the GOP driver of a notebook.
The problem I have is that with the latest GOP driver for skylake (9.0.1080) I only get a black screen when booting, the OS loads fine tho and displays the new version but I can no longer access the BIOS.
Latest working version I could find is 9.0.1047.
I was in the assumption that there is no difference between desktop and notebook GOP drivers or is there?

@snixel

What specific GOP versions from 1048 to 1080 have you tried?

#280 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by snixel 06.09.2019 17:03

@SoniX

None, I came from 1035 and extracted 1047 from a similar laptop from the same brand. That GOP version works fine, then I tried 1080 but got the black screen during boot.
Is there a collection of GOP drivers somewhere I can try? Cause I can only find 1080 here at the Intel EFI "RaidDriver" and "GopDriver" BIOS Modules topic.

@snixel

Please send original BIOSes, from your notebook and from another since 1047.

I have a small collection of GOP Drivers. I can put it in the cloud.

Original BIOS from my notebook i'm trying to upgrade (MSI GS40 6QE) -- GOP 1035

Similar laptop with GOP 1047 (MSI GS43VR 6RE) -- GOP working with my notebook

@snixel

2 questions:
1) OROM VBIOS transferred from othet notebook to your notebook? If yes, what was the effect in CSM mode?
2) GOP 1080 + HDMI out, what was the effect?

UBU, starting with version 1.75, supports the replacement of GOP VBT.
Later I will upload the files available to me to the Cloud.

It turned out that sometimes the GOP driver may not work correctly and for the correct operation an updated version of GOP VBT is required.

BUT! The transfer of settings, as for VBIOS, unfortunately is not always correct. And it requires user intervention to correctly configure.
It is quite possible that the correct setting of GOP VBT will allow replacing GOP drivers with the latest versions for SKL/KBL. But this is not a fact. I have not been able to do this yet. :(

@SoniX
Hello,
I have MSI H67MA-E35 mobo which does not support the RX580/RX570/RX560 even I update the OROM VBIOS.
And I saw many mobo such as GIGABYTE and ASUS B75,did have the problem too.
Could you konw how to solve this?thank~~~
