HP pegatron APX78-BN AGESA update

Try to flash my new mod.
Make new "exported reg entry" after flashing and reboot. New screenshot of CPU-Z isn't needed.
P.S. In my first mod I've make the jump over printing error string & rebooting. Now I try to fix microcode loading. It's very important for Ubuntu.

hello,

Since there was no difference inside the screenshot/reg this was my conclusion also.
So I'll try your new mod and get back to you once done.

Regards.

It's rather strange.
Make BIOS backup by Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0.

hello,
It is indeed. But not that much... My understanding (what I reed inside different forums) is that for AMI bioses it's very difficult to update the AGESA and that's this part that need to be updated but I do not have a deep knowledge, so I could be wrong.
Anyway here is the backup file (hope the Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0 is a false positive virus since it was detected by all my av but all the versions have the same checksum so I ran it anyway).

Thanks,

regards.

OK. Can you make "exported reg entry" with native CPU?

Hello,

Yes I can of course since the CPU were exchanged a lot of time, I decided to change heatsik and let the cas open so now I can remove it and heatsink in a few seconds.
I'll do it this morning, I mean in few hours. And post it.

Regards.

As I thought. I've made fourth mod.
Make new "exported reg entry" with native or new CPU after flashing and reboot.

As I said
(09-20-2016, 02:02 PM)DeathBringer Wrote: Microcode isn't loaded from BIOS. ... Now I try to fix microcode loading.
but I wasn't successful. So just use my first mod. Windows load the newest microcode itself.
BTW: native BIOS didn't load microcode for AM3 CPU too.
Please post new topic in Confirmed CPU Support Upgrades with attached BIOS mod.
And add "[Solved]" to this topic's header by editing first post.
P.S. You can delete your BIOS backup from this topic...
