Default Enabling "hidden" BIOS functions...

hi all, i've just got a MSI-6580 mobo, and as you know, MSI like to hide all the "advanced" functions like PCI Dynamic Bursting from its end users. My question is, how do i make them appear in the BIOS menu/ submenus?
the MSI-6580 uses AMI BIOS. However, even the latest (leaked) AMIBCP can't crack/ edit it. Please help. Thanks.

Hello powerloony,

Check http://www.h-oda.com/ for utilities that may enable you to modify the registers. Be careful with such utilities though.

Hello there powerloony,

Yup! I'm from Malaysia.

PS? You mean PowerStrip? No, check out http://www.h-oda.com/. I think either WCPUID or WPCREDIT will allow you to edit the registers.

er - PS means post-script (i think i forgot to put the dot...hehe)
by the way, do you know of any BIOS editors? (either run in DOS or Windows) e.g. AMISETUP (but doesn't support MSI-6580)

Hmm... You can try TweakBIOS but I'm not sure it's updated or even still available?

i845PE is a new chipset, so it's not so easy to find.
