    Default award BIOS sources

    Would anyone here that can view chinese sites properly check & see if the sources listed here:

    http://www.tomore.com/1/10919.html

    ...can still be retreived?

    It's supposed to be the full "Award Bios 6.00Pg Source Code" which floated around the 'net for awhile.

    Thanks

    OK, never mind - got it. For those interested:

    Remember xom.efi?

    I can see already, that the most economical way (in terms of hacking energy) to provide the information OS X needs is to load it as a BIOS-"like" module.

    That's what is going on with titan/natit, sound, etc.

    I hacked a BIOS extension onto my 955x board so the LSI SCSI raid controller I have would behave properly. But it doesn't make good sense to hack every BIOS on every hackint0sh out there.

    Better for everything - whether it's a greyed out "Max CPUID" or a different mini-pci network card to do it thataway.

    In checking around, I've discovered that the tools available for Award BIOS are obsolete.

    And we have all these others, Insyde, AMI - more I'm sure.

    @ Bugs: What branding does your BIOS show? Just Toshiba, or Award(or similar?)

    @ nesukun: Apple's EFI is like the wizard of Oz - just a little old bald guy fooling the pants off of everyone.

    This little game of Apple has got me thinking that we all - Linux, OS X and Winderz users need to rethink the way we get those OSs' onto our boxen.

    @ apasynth: yes, that is a great approach -I have been watching what bofors, Kiko etc, have been doing.

    In BIOS my BIOS only shows up with a long ID-string + version number (2.4), in Mac OS sys profiler nothing BIOS specific shows up. Depending on the kernel I boot (.4 or .8) it sometimes mentions Toshiba in System Profiler.

    If you save off a copy of the BIOS, then browse it with a text editor, near the bottom or top should at least see text string for Award, Insyde or similar.
