One of the easiest methods.
Here is an example for Asus Z77-V LE Plus Main BIOS - 0910
1) For Aptio 4
Open the BIOS file in MMTool and Extract the OROM VBIOS file, example as 'vbios.dat'
For Desktop DevID SNB-102, IVB-162, HSW/BDW-402,412,c02,c12
For Mobile DevID SNB-106, IVB-166, HSW/BDW-406,416,c06,c16
For Aptio 5
Open the BIOS file in MMTool and Tab “Option ROM”. Extract the OROM VBIOS file, example as ‘vbios.dat’
// screen //
SKL/KBL/CFL DevID - 406
2) Open the file ‘vbios.dat’ in any Hex editor
version OROM VBIOS - SNB/IVB Desktop 2143 (We are looking for a BSF-script file ‘snb_2143.bsf’ (desktop)
version VBT - " A6 00" -> A6 (v1.66)
size VBT - “0E 0F” -> 0F0E (3854 byte)
This is important information for the following steps.
*3) If the BSF-script file to the desired version is not present, refer to the table to find the compatible. To do this, we have data on the version and size of VBT.
See the attached file 'Table VBT OROM VBIOS Version and Size.docx’
4) install the program Intel Binary Modification Programm (IBMP) and run.
5) In IBMP ppen the ‘vbios.dat’ file and the BSF-script is the correct version in this case ‘snb_2143.bsf’
6) Save settings open OROM VBIOS, example as “transfer.ssf”, command
- Menu -> “BIOS Setting -> Save All” -> 'transfer.ssf’
7) Close window (Ctrl+F4)
8) Open the “transfer.ssf” file in any Texr editor and Remove one string
Important! If you do not remove this string that all messages will be displayed on the version of the old version.
9) In IBMP open new pure the OROM VBIOS and BSF-script files is the correct version, example OROM VBIOS ‘snb_2170.dat’ and BSF-script ‘snb_2170.bsf’ (desktop)
10) Load settings from “transfer.ssf”, command
- Menu → “BIOS Setting → Apply All” → ‘transfer.ssf’ and save, example 'vbios_new.dat’
For update in UBU Tool (only v1.20-1.69), files saved as:
- Sandy/IvyBridge → ‘Modules\VGA\vbiossib.dat’
- Hasweell/Broadwell → 'Modules\VGA\vbioshsw.dat’
For update in UBU Tool v1.70 and above), files saved as:
- Sandy/IvyBridge → ‘Files\Intel\VBIOS\vbiossib.dat’
- Hasweell/Broadwell → ‘Files\Intel\VBIOS\vbioshsw.dat’
- Skylake/Kabylake/Coffeelake → 'Files\Intel\VBIOS\vbiosskc.dat’
11) Be sure to check all settings, is nowhere to be alert or red entries.
12) Close IBMP and update main BIOS.
13) Update for Aptio 4
Open the BIOS file in MMTool and Tab “Replace”
// screen //
Update for Aptio 5
Open the BIOS file in UEFITool
// screen //
14) Flash BIOS
a) Changes in version VBT - new options in the settings.
- In this case, the transfer settings is successful 99%.
b) Changed version and the size of VBT - Added new settings.
- In this case, it may require additional holding settings manually.
c) Ideal variant when the version and size of VBT, old and new OROM VBIOS, are the same.
d) Unfortunately, the transfer settings from OROM VBIOS Haswell 21xx in OROM VBIOS Haswell-Broadwell 10xx has its own complexity and requires finding solutions.
e) Settings VBT OROM VBIOS Haswell-Broadvell versions 1025 - 1028 coincide with versions 1029 - 1038, except BSF-scripts. But the transfer of settings is always one to one.
Attention owners of motherboards from Asrock Z87.
Unfortunately for the OROM VBIOS 2166 no BSF-script, the closest analog ‘hsw_2170.bsf’ is not appropriate.
For you, there is good news. You can use ready files OROM VBIOS and VBT for GOP from similar motherboards Z97.
Example Asrock Z87 Extreme 4:
1) Downloan latest version BIOS Z97 Extreme 4
2) Open the BIOS file in MMTool
3) Extract the OROM VBIOS file, as ‘vbioshsw.dat’. (For UBU v1.20 and above)
4) Extract “as is” the VBT for GOP file, GUID 878AC2CC-5343-46F2-B563-51F89DAF56BA, as ‘vbthsw.ffs’. (For UBU v1.20 and above)
5) Put these files ‘vbioshsw.dat’ and ‘vbthsw.ffs’ in a folder Modules\VGA
6) Update and flash.
Asrock Z97 Ext3 → Z87 Ext3
Asrock Z97 Ext4 → Z87 Ext4
Asrock Z97 Ext6 → Z87 Ext6
All ports are working without problems.
Important! Names motherboard models must match.
Quick transfer of settings from one OROM VBIOS file to another.
In this case, the target file may already contain third-party settings.
Only 3 conditions for quickly transferring your settings from the source file to the target:
1) Source $VBT name == Target $VBT Name
2) Source $VBT version == Target $VBT version
3) Source $VBT size == Target $VBT size
> clonevbt <source> --> only Info
> clonevbt <source> <Target> --> Info amn/or Clone
After successfully transferring the settings, you will receive a new file 'cln_vbios.bin’
Transferring settings GOP VBT from the old version to the new one.
For the correct operation of the EFI Intel GOP Driver, an external configuration file of the GOP VBT is required.
GOP VBT file in structure is similar to VBT which is located in OROM VBIOS, but has its own specific features. Therefore, it is highly undesirable to use BSF from OROM or vice versa.
The transfer of settings is exactly the same as that of OROM VBIOS.
1) Open BIOS file in UEFITool
2) Find string as Hex
2 options, because the file can be located in various structures of the EAW section.
3) Extract file as body. Example: 'old_vbt.bin'
4) Look at the version of the VBT. You can see using the utilities:
5) Open iBMP and choice old_vbt.bin and BSF desired version.
6) Save All setting/ Example: 'vbt_set.ssf'. And close Window.
7) Open new fle VBT. Example 221 - vbt.bin and vbt.bsf
8) Open file 'vbt_set.ssf' and Apply All setting and Save file- Example: new_vbt.bin'.
8.1) You may have to adjust some of the settings you need. Check them out.
9) Open BIOS file in UEFITool v0.2x and find GOP VBT, see 2)
10) Replace as body and Save BIOS file
* 10) UBU 1.75.1. Only HSW+ and SKL+.
Put the 'new_vbt.bin' as 'vbthsw.bin' for HSW+ or as 'vbtskl.bin' for SKL+ files in the "Files\Intel\VBIOS" folder.
