a few peeps like Rev,Best,& a few others are good with them and often help people if the bios file that needs modding/changing is posted here.
What did you try to open it with?
You can't use the MMTool because it's not an AMI BIOS. You have to use the other method, which doesn't involve renaming anything.
Give it another go.
Set yourself up with a folder for each of the two BIOS types with the necessary files. Then each time you do a new BIOS it's just a matter of copying them into the new folder where the new BIOS is located.
Try practising with the BIOS you tried to open. Take it slow and check the result at the end with the command intelmicrocodelist.exe biosname.bin (or whatever the extension is on the end). Note the BIOS doesn't have to end in *.bin. It could be *.rom or something else - it doesn't matter but for the purposes of the example we'll use *.bin.
It sounds complicated but it's really not. After you've done it a few times it's fairly easy unless you get a tricky one that doesn't want to play ball.
Here's the procedure . . .
1. Change the name of file with the 771 and 775 microcodes that you will have downloaded from "ncpucode-lga-771-775-microcode-cpuid-1067x-6Fx.bin" to simply "ncpucode.bin"
2. Open a DOS command window and issue the following commands.
3. attrib +R ncpucode.bin
4. intelmicrocodelist.exe biosname.bin (This will show you the list of existing microcodes - note the dates).
5. cbrom195.exe biosname.bin /nc_cpucode ncpucode.bin (this is the command that works the magic)
6. intelmicrocodelist.exe biosname.bin (This will show you the list of microcodes again, hopefully with the relevant ones updated to the latest 2010 model - there should be 7 of them in all ( 2 x 067A, 4 x 0676 and 1 x 0677).
