I got, thanks.
It seems that everything was saved, but not active. so I booted to dos and used DMICFG. now everything is as it should be. will Post a Pic. in a bit.
Here are Pics. Found the Problem though, If I tried using the (MacPro3,1) & MB ( Mac-F4208CC8 Proto1 ) I would get hackintosh from geekbench, with the older Mac MB set. Everything is clean and how it should be ( Can I really say SHould* ) lol Thanks. browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/82364 Bottom Pic shows it can be set Just not in DMICFG
I think I have just worked out why by manually editing the SMBios element of my Asus P5E3 Premium wifi@n bios does not effect what is shown in Geekbench. The settings are actually stored elsewhere on the motherboard and override what is actually in the bios itself. Even though I have edited the motherboard DMI, if I save the bios, the settings contained therein, are the original settings. This has the benefit of if you upgrade the bios, the modified settings remain and are independent of the bios itself. None of the manual edits I have tried with this particular bios are seen or change what has been changed by DMICFG.exe. So in simple terms, by using DMICFG.exe, I can get Geekbench to report all changes apart from the bios vendor id. Maybe that info can be saved and manually edited, I will look into that. This is what Geekbench currently reports:
The structure of the bios seems slightly different too and this may explain why AMCBCP.exe crashes when you try to open up this bios, as it finds that some elements are not in the exact place it is expecting.
It would be nice if the tools could be available to make all the edits on an Intel motherboard like the D945GCl, D975XBX or D5400XS.
Currently there is iAssist.exe and Intel Integrator Toolkit but neither let you edit all of the information and if you have an OEM board like the eMachine W3609 (D945GCL) you can't edit any of the information.
I've tried the DMICFG.exe tool but it doesn't let you edit anything and I couldn't find the MMTools v3.19.
