[GUIDE] Legacy AMIBIOS8 make all compiled Settings available

Hi everyone,

after month of Try and Error, and using the Internet Archive to build up a big library with AMD tech files and Guides from the New Rebel Heaven Forums I finally finished my guide which basically consists of 2 parts.
The first part is rewritten from the new rebels heaven forum the credits goes to that users.
The second part is a modified easier method to find all the settings which are saved to CMOS/NVRAM on a running machine do some calculation and replace the one you need or want to unlock with settings which are useless or you do not need.
All the work is based on a 2048kb AMIBIOS8 files. It should work with smaller 1024kb ROM files or larger 4096kb. The method is the same.
As I write in the guide for Case #2 I think there is a tool which can also extract the CMOS Tokens from an Offline Image but I couldn’t remember it’s name or how I make it work. I really hope someone can give a hint.

I know this guide are late and we all need it years ago but for retro use and fun it is useful.
I can’t give a download link to the needed tools maybe most of you already got them I dunno.

Find out the guide as attachment I also uploaded it to github: Obsole BIOS Guide PDF Document

Edit #1: Added 2 screenshots of the working system + a list of 41-Bytecodes which i calculated explicit for H8DGI-F

Update I successfully modified the H8QG7 LNF4 OCNG5 Bios with AMI Core8 Legacy BIOS for a friend.
Change the the available Settings from “hide” to “show” ( easy part ) and getting the available Settings with the Dump of Register 70/71h with the Index Mask Combination searching for the 4 required options starting with 01 […] with the position of the OnChip Sata Channel and Type calculating there Position in the 1B file and change them with Core Configuration to setup correct Core Configs for the Clumping.
This is the second board wehere the AMD counterpart of Intels Bifurcation is working with a stupid simple NVME Pcie Slot Card again the cheap Asus 4x4 M2 card works like charm ( not limited to Asus boards as they mentioned )
