Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

I have come to the conclusion that the BIOS file is compressed.

Playing around with the excellent program "Awesome Dirty Do Checksum Checker V3" (Thank you semi) - I loaded the BIOS file and chose Decompress. This leaves me with the file: "02_POST_00020100_Rom.dec" in the ADDCC_V3 folder.


Opening this I can clearly see my original Wireless Card's ID in the Hex:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4222&SUBSYS_135C103C Hex: 868022423C105C13


So can I just edit the "02_POST_00020100_Rom.dec" file?

If I do, how do I 're-compress' this back into a BIOS file that can be reprogrammed?

Also, I am lost with the changing the Checksum. What options would I need to select to create a new checksum for the new BIOS file to work properly?
