Not sure if you can help me on the following, but if I do not ask, I will not get any answer.
I have to check +- 400 identical systems. I could do the hardware section, but the only missing pieces is the BIOS setting.
I try flashrom on the board without success, but I think you could help me.
I wonder if there is a way to dump the BIOS settings from the memory to a file. I want to do a checksum on the file, and compare with a master system. That way I do not need to decode the settings, but I guess the checksum will be different if I have a different configuration.
Do any of you have an idea, or track I could follow to achieve my goal.
This could be a dos, or linux solution.
Thanks in advance for any help
I needed similar and found it on this link: http://www.pixelbeat.org/docs/bios/
Essentially (on Linux): sudo modprobe nvram sudo dd if=/dev/nvram of=dir/nvram-save/2010-10-26
... then md5sum in the same script ?
