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 advanceĀ  for any help

I needed similar and found it on this link:

Essentially (on Linux):
sudo modprobe nvram
sudo dd if=/dev/nvram of=dir/nvram-save/2010-10-26

... then md5sum in the same script ?
