It would be nice, thank You guys!

Any news guys? @dsanke @SoniX :)

Quiet as in a vacuum.
Perhaps in July-August there will be news, but not a fact.

@SoniX @izajasz was asking if you could help to update VBT for him in the mod BIOS I made, he linked BIOS page on pg 25, post #372
For some reason I cannot do VBT updates, manual or app does not work properly for me, probably I just don't do it often enough - but that is due to it never looks correct, and I can't test, so I pass on editing this

@Lost_N_BIOS

For Asus of the 9th series, if the GOP drivers are in PEI volumes, then the problem is not in the VBT, but in the correct replacement of the drivers.
For older chipsets, VBT replacement was not critical.

@Lost_N_BIOS You think You can do it bro? :)

@SoniX - There is no problem, only I don't know how/like to edit VBT - location of the module does not matter in this regard (it's in DXE volume anyway), he just wants it updated since I already updated the rest of the BIOS.
Always some problem when doing manually, or with cloneVBT (and instructions are not clear for that) - No problem doing vBIOS ever, which is similar, so something needs outlined better at first post in regards to this I guess?

@izajasz - As you already know, I cannot do that edit. I can replace the module without issue, it's the edit/transfer settings from Old VBT to New that I can't do

Never mind - All! I just went to try again manually, and I see you have latest possible VBT already, HSW >> 189 - So, nothing more to do here, your BIOS is up to date as can be

@Lost_N_BIOS

CloneVBT - Clones VBT only in OROM VBIOS. Provided that the version and size of the source and the final file are the same.
In other cases, there will be only info.

To update the VBT for GOP, you must use the IBMP. If the transfer of settings contains warnings or errors, the settings are entered manually.

@SoniX - Thanks - But, I don't understand about Clone VBT >> "Only OROM vBIOS" Isn't VBT by definition tied to and used only for GOP module (UEFI)
And thanks for clarification, to only update VBT manually for GOP. I've tried that in the past with BMP, didn't work, but I see now you have added more info and instruction on this, so next time I will try again and see if it works better for me

When you have time, can you please show me example image of "Warning" and "Error" So I can know which are which vs those that I always see in all vBIOS updates (changes marked in red that are not error/warnings)

@Lost_N_BIOS

AMD and nVidea have an OROM + GOP binding.
They have cleverly done. I didnít fully understand it myself, but noticed that if there is an OROM, then it is possible to control some graphics functions. If there is no OROM, then control is limited even at the level of OS drivers.
Intel has everything. OROM itself, and GOP + a separate VBT file (not OROM) by itself.
In general, GOP will not work if there is no VBT file, unlike AMD or nVidea.

CloneVBT
Example:
BIOS has OROM VBIOS CoffeLake build (v) 1020. Lfatest v1026. But we do not have BSF for these versions.
At the same time, the VBIOS of the same line, the version and the size of the VBT for these OROMs are the same.

1
 
clonevbt 1020.rom 1026.rom
 


File 1020, rum that we extracted from our BIOS. 1026 can be any extracted from another BIOS.
As a result, we get a file version 1026 with our settings. Which is then replaced in BIOS.

As for warnings and errors during migration, they can be different
Most often, these are warnings that the size does not match. Or missing parameter.

In general, leave it as it is, if everything works. There will be nothing new except the numbers in the version.

@SoniX - Thanks for explanation there! Here now though, I am talking only motherboard BIOS OROM/GOP and VBT (The separate one, is one I was asking for help to update here, but turns out was already latest).
And I VERY rarely, if ever, update AMD/NVIDIA integrated vBIOS inside motherboard BIOS. And on graphics cards, I have no problems messing with vBIOS Legacy/GOP

Thanks for example on cloneVBT too, maybe next time I will try and see.

Next time you see warning and error during BMP transfer, if you remember, please grab an image example to add to the thread/guide for reference - thank you

Itís not necessary to go far and wait. Bright example - transferring settings for the GOP SKL-CML VBT 221 -> 228.
This is an example of warnings and errors.

@SoniX - Thanks for example idea, but I'd have to have/know BIOS with 221 in it to attempt that so I could see, maybe I will run into eventually

Hi all,
have someone RAW GOP VBT SNB/IVB Mobile version 175?
OK, it's stoneage hardware but still working.

@Mabuse

Unfortunately, the VBT and BSF for the SNB/IVB can no longer be found.
