Re: mod/add SMBIOS in to bios?

I mean i have an issues with the video card not fully detecting (HD5000 instead of HD5570). I was thinking it was the SMBIOS but, perhaps it's just coincidence.

Re: mod/add SMBIOS in to bios?

I know you can make a fake SMBIOS to get things like "about this mac" and itunes working how ever i'm have an issuer with the video card only correctly but, not entirely correctly identifying. i'm starting to think maybe it's a coincidence. http://www.osx86.net/topic/20063-hd5570-doensnt-fully-recog...

Re: mod/add SMBIOS in to bios?

you need a patched kernel for 10.6 as i'm suing 10.6. since it's a pentum 4 skt 478 you need a legacy kernel.

Re: mod/add SMBIOS in to bios?

I have a BioStar P4M900-M4. for some reason Chameleon boot loader/10.6 snow leopard hackintosh can't detect my SMBIOS. Perhaps if some one can confirm that my mobo does indeed have SMBIOS i can take my problem/questions back to the hackintosh community.

Re: Flashing a modded bios laptop with a new bios question

no, you mean the will the new bios see your modded bios and bric kyour device. i'm inclined to think not. if you did really mean that then the answer is best suited for someone who can see in to the future. unless you have any ideas as to why the new bios flash wouldn't work i don't see why not. i w...
