@ PASAf and @ plutomaniac:

Since your recent posts have nothing to do with the UBU tool, I have moved them into the correct Forum thread.

I've been trying to mod my bios so that I am able to use the i7 2860QM.

I am currently using an asus k53e Laptop, and I attempted to follow the tutorial but when i get to the point where I transfer the BMP Settings, I get A huge list of Errors and then BMP crashes.

SoniX could you give me a hand? at this point Im at a loss.

The Bios File is Here: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/K53E/K53EAS221.zip


I was originally trying to get Overclock settings, but that didn't work out for me. I did get More settings just not any related to overclocking.

Vbios Version 2117 (Which is in the OLD Folder) Its Listed as Ironlake, In the folders. However The CPU Is a Sandy Bridge.


Current CPU: (Info from CPU-Z 1.72.0)
Intel Core i3 2310M (Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz)
Socket 1023 FCBGA

Motherboard:
Manufacturer: AsusTeK Computer Inc.
Model: K53E 1.0
Chipset: Intel Sandy Bridge Rev. 09
Southbridge: Intel HM65 Rev. 05

Current Bios:
Brand: American Megatrends Inc.
Version: K53E.222 (Semi Unlocked) *note: Aside From the settings being set to user instead of Default Everything is the same as K53E.221 Which is the one linked above

I attached My Cpu-Z Readout.

Anyway Could anyone Tell me what Vbios I should be Modding To, Along with any other changes I would need to make to get the i7 2860QM Working on my laptop



PS: Just wondering But do I have to use the Same Vbios Type When Updating With BMP, So If I have 2117 I upgrade to 2120? or can I switch off of IronLake-Mobile to SNBIVB. Since thats what I tried and was getting all the errors.

@ jasonmbrown
Without risk you can upgrade only to version 2119. So the version and size of the VBT 2117 == 2119 (Mobile).
To transfer the settings to a later version, you'll have to do everything manually.

#80 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by jasonmbrown 20.01.2016 14:25

Thank you. So what your saying is that I need to manually input the correct Settings? Is there Any Guides for doing that? =) Really Don't wanna screw something up.



Note: Is it safe to use UBU To update Mobile Microcodes? Or should I do it manually?

Last Question (Semi Unrelated): Anychance you would be able to tell me What Else I would need to modify in the bios to get an i7 2860QM Cpu Running. (Seeing how its running Intel HD 4000 I assumed that The VBios Would Be Needed, and Since its a newer CPU I assume the microcodes are also needed)

Just not sure if theres anything else that the bios does to run/control the Cpu

Edit: I have no idea what to do when the original Settings seem to go much farther down then I can see and the new Settings have much Less room for data entry? (Posted an Image as Example)


I added my vbios to this post, I feel Like its Odd.

If transferred to version 2120 and above the hand.
Unfortunately, the description of settings and paremetrov not.

If the CPU microcode is the same as that of the desktop, the risk is minimized.

I think that is enough to set the desired CPU microcode.

hello everyone
I'm glad I'm back here again. I've found some older vbios. like ironlake, sandybridge, and new skylake series

vbios shows B1 00 (Version VBT) 00 11 ->11 00(Size VBT) 2179 (Version OROM)

on step 5, i couldn't find bsf file of 2179, can only find bsf file of 2178 and 2180. can i use these instead

#85 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by Maison1 16.02.2016 00:00

If you mean the Haswell VBIOS 2179 then look into the file in the video bios archive named "Table VBT OROM VBIOS Version and Size.docx". You can even manually change to the Haswell/Broadwell VideoBios 1040 by copying the settings by hand with two BMP windows open, one for 2179 and one for 1040. I've done this on a Haswell Laptop and it works fine now with VideoBios 1040.

#86 RE: [Guide] Transfer of specific Intel VBIOS settings by using Intels BMP tool by Maison1 16.02.2016 00:10

Thanks SoniX for your Guide and the VideoBios archive. I have modded since then several Laptops.

I did a Haswell to Haswell/Broadwell VideoBios change on a MSI GP60 laptop.

on step 5. i try to use bsf file of 1040 instead, cuz i couldn't find the folder contains bsf & dat file of 2179. onto step 10, when i apply transfer.ssf which is created on step 5 . it shows warning in BMP. if i hit "Yes", it just crush. any ideas?

You quoted my post but maybe did not understand it? Maybe then it is at the moment not the right time to start changing the Video Bios. You can put your Intel graphics hardware out of order.

Again: It is written in the file "Table VBT OROM VBIOS Version and Size.docx" when you have the Video Bios Version 2179 which Video Bios Version bsf file to use. I could write the number but you should read it yourself to understand the modding procedure. If you would go to Video Bios Version "2180 out of this two files a ssf file can be generated to apply automatically the settings from Video Bios 2179 to the Video Bios Version 2180.

Next I wrote that the settings from 2179 to 1040 need to be copied by hand. Does it mean that you use an automatic ssf settings file or not?

The aim is:

#89 vbios update by kyl 12.03.2016 21:42

hi

i m trying to update my vbios
i cannot find info about the display toggle list

my version 2111 uses an old toggle list and display algorithm

how can i update these tables

this is my original
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List1 01 00 00 08 00 00 02 00 00 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

this is the new different table
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List1 01 09 08 02 05 04 0C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

i tried to update my table and now it is
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List1 01 08 02 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

i removed all the Reserved bits(or whatever they are), always 0
i removed the second bit in any line (left to right in ssf or right to left in intel BMP), always 00

my second table is
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List2 01 40 00 01 80 00 04 01 00 04 08 00 04 40 00 04 02 00 08 01 00 08 04 00

the new table is
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List2 01 09 08 02 05 04 0C 00

i removed the Reserved bits
TABLE $IVM_Toggle_List2 01 40 01 80 04 01 04 08 04 40 04 02 08 01 08 04

now what?
the first value is 4001, how can i turn this pair in a single value like the new table?

also how can i update the algorithm?
the first part is the same for every version and changes in update 2337
can i update this part with no risks?

my files attached


thanks

#90 RE: vbios update by kyl 14.03.2016 13:29

i successfully created a new config for my vbios and flashed the bios
now my version is 2170

this should be writtend in the vbios transfer guide:
if your current vbios uses an old display alghorithm, DON T update your algorithm and the toggle lists! (this may be wrong in some rare cases)
about new features not present in your current old vbios, disable THEM ALL and use the bsf file as guide, they will probably disappear when you "compile" the new config because your chipset does not support them.
If they do not disappear, this means they could work but not with your specific display/OEM setup, so just disable them.
about old features removed in the new update, seems fine to let them go, because they are moved to a new location with a new name or they are removed to fix issues
