Does anyone have the Asus "ASUS_FLASH" OEM BIOS files by any chance?

Just downloaded oemscan, got a Gateway 310S H box to fix. Why are there GatewayA and GatewayC folders when there's just one folder for each of the other brands?

I'm working on downloading all the Gateway files from oembios.net When I get them all, which should be extracted to which Gateway folder? (Would be a nice thing to have in the instructions.)

How about grouping each brand's links together instead of scattering them all over the page?

^^

If you look inside the oemscan.ini file it will show you which sets of files go in which folder depending on the crc value of OEMBIOS.CAT. They are multiple sets required for some manufactures because a few of their machines have different slp info in the bios than others so all sets will be needed on the disk to have a sucessful activation.

Hi, FreeStyler,

Please check your personal In-Box. I wrote my answer to your question posted to me @MDL last December, regarding "AMOI SLP1.0 BIOS Range". Very sorry for my long-time silence, which has accountable reasons, but your understanding would be appreciated.

Regards,

Pajero

By the way, do you speak Chinese? Because you mentioned Chinese website here.

Hey Guy's,

I got a 'Tiny PC' in this week, no HDD [so no oembios set] :no:

The manufacturer is listed as 'FIC___'

I couldn't find it listed on post 202, anyone know if theres an oembios set available ?

Thanks Guys. :)

I never heard of Tiny PC but there was a Tiny Computers. They went out of business and were taken over by Time Computers. both of these brands are listed in kutslist (but I don't have either of these sets). What does the COA say?

Opp's...

That should have said 'Tiny' PC. :blushing:

Yeah, the COA says 'Tiny Computers'

This is a P4, I thought Time Computers went bust in the late 90's ?

Wow That was a long thread to read... and now i got the gist but at the same time am left at where to start....

I would like to incorporate all this into my multiboot disk (xp, pro, home, mce, 2000, 98se, hirens, etc)

If someone might explain the process and bring all this thread into a small how to type post I would appreciate it. Right now i have Oem and Retail versions of xp home pro and mce... also i have Dell sp2 Royalty copies for xp pro home and mce as well as vista...

What do i need (tools and files) to begin and what is the basic steps to take... Thanks in advance.

Hi Mrd05d ,

Just take it in small steps. and your disk should work out fine. ;)

Start with making a plain SP2/3 unattended install that pre-activates.

Then add your Hotfixes, Updates, Tweaks, Apps, or what ever. Making sure all these work.

Once your happy with it, migrate it into your Multi-boot disk.

As long as your using some sort of menu to select the OS you want to install, it should be the same as adding any other version of XP. B)

right on well i already made a AIODVD with xp home and pro retail/oem 2000 98se so i can do my reinstalls easier at work. But im not exactly sure how to get the oembios to switch after the scan if that makes since. What exactly does oemscan.exe do? Just Scan or actually scan match and replace before copy? Do i need to write my own script to have it replace... The thread was so very long and went back and forth im lost as to how to actually have the disk scan for which oembios then tell the computer to copy those on setup. Any help would be appreciated.

I guess it would have helped if i would have downloaded the Zip and read the info files... Sorry bout that

Hi Mrd05d,

I'm no expert, but this is how i believe it works.

OEMSCAN scans the BIOS looking for the manufactures strings, then compares that info to whats listed in its .ini file. If it finds a match it replaces the OEMBIOS files on the CD, with the ones in the listed folder.

When you download it ;)

Look at the "Oemscan.ini" it will make more sence.

Hope this helps.

Ok Now that i looked at this for a little longer and read the oemscan instructions txt I have a few questions as well as offerings.

First the offerings:

I would like to mirror the oembios repository. I currently have 2000 gb to use on my web hosting server and a matched 2000 gb monthly transfer limit.

I think if the files were offered differently it would be much easier to understand start and finish this product. I would like to 7z the oembios files in the correct directory structure with the oemscan.ini that matches for all the oembios file sets that we have. This way you could download one 7z file extract to the oemscan folder and then just remove the things you don't want instead of having to manually add all the ones you do. Maybe also i could host some tutorials on how to implement oemscan in unattended AIO DVDs for Techs and such...

Second Questions:

Why are there oembios crossed off the repository? Also the torrent files are down i know that you cant distribute them through the forum but is there any other way to get them. Also Each set of oembios files has to go in a seperate folder right? So if there are two dell sets then the Folder structure would be Dell\set1\ and Dell\set2\

Please see my oemscan.ini as follows.

However, I don't know some SLPs range exactly, becaue they are maked as "." in oembiso.dat, so I enlarge their range. For example, AMOI, Tektronix, JVC, SHARP.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but ... the ones that are crossed off are no longer needed as they are covered by a newer OEMBIOS file for that manufactuerer.

I think they just keep adding and adding detection for new BIOS without removing detection for old ones.

PS

I also wish someone were to summarize this stuff into a nice article/tutorial format.

I myself gave up. I just switch to the correct OEMBIOS files in safe mode after installation.

Here is the relevant quote for the SLP Whitepaper:

ReadSize can range from 0005 - FFFF; however, there are performance and security penalties if this range is unnecessarily large. If not specified, it has a hexadecimal value of 104 bytes. ReadSize is optional.

I'm using a rather simpler oemscan.ini. What, if any, is the advantage of including the optional 'RANGE' parameter in each entry?

So, for Tektronix

BIOS=F000,C9A6,,Tektronix

BIOS0=F000,E840,,Tektronix

BIOS1=F000,BEC6,,Tektronix

BIOS2=F000,E840,,Tektronix

I should write the range as follows, right? By the way, where can I get this technical information you mentioned.

RANGE="0xFC9A6:104,0xFE840:104,0xFBEC6:104"
