ASUS E45M1-I Deluxe GOP module insertion

Hi!

My HTPC has an ASUS E45M1-I Deluxe mainboard. I updated the AMD RAID ROM from version 3.2 to 3.3.1540.19.
There is also a VBIOS but without GOP driver. The BIOS has no “Fast Boot Mode” setting, too.
Even more interesting, it has no AHCI ROM, only a RAID ROM. But this board doesn’t even support RAID configurations.

Is it possible to insert a GOP driver?
Is the AMD GOP driver that comes with UBU an universial binary?
Would the insertion of a GOP driver bring some benefits even for a mainboard without “Ultra Fast Boot Mode” support?

Here is the output of UBU:

EDIT: If I select 5 to auto-update the OROMs, only the one with GUID ending in "FC" gets updated.
As you can see above, there is also also a GUID ending with "FD".

Probably yes, but that does not automaticly mean, that it will work.

You should ask SoniX.

I doubt, that you will notice the difference as long as your BIOS doesn’t offer the option to completely disable the “Compatibility Support Module”.


Unfortunately, this BIOS does not support full UEFI mode, so insert GOPDriver and other EFI-modules will not give any results.
Module "MISC - FD" is updated only when OROM 1002-4393, but it is not, so this module is not updated.
