Guess I’ll dig deeper into MGADiag’s code because the results you’re describing are different then mine. Sounds like you’ve been down this road before, any hint’s you’d like to throw?
The OEMBIOS sets contain records protected by multiple methods of encryption and validated with mutiple signatures. I'm not going to explain how it is encrypted or post the unencrypted records. Instead I will post the records from one of the sets with the SLP string masked.
Each entry represents a range to search in and a string to search for (in this case all the strings are the same). There exist versions of this set with only the first 2 and 3 entries. I beleive that the first entry contains an entry error (Offset FE00) and no systems were produced with just the first entry. You can see from this example that manufacturers just append information to existing sets so their newer sets would still work on older systems.
