Hi All!

I am investigating where are "setup defaults values" stored and how it is loaded to CMOS-RAM by Load Setup Defaults / Load Optimized Defaults in Phoenix,Award and AMI BIOSES. Anyone has found any procedure (please hex signature) and could show me example binary code offset for any bios dump file to analysis?

Thank You for Any information in Advance.

Easy to find this places for any bioses. Use standard utilities for changing CMOS Default and compare.

BIOS320 (!BIOS) can dump the CMOS and includes a CMOS editor. It can be helpful.
