Why would u want to remove it? But yea you def need to keep it. Its there for a reason tongue.gif I suggest reading in one of the many tutorials on here as to what a eeprom actually is.

Actually, it's possible to embed EEPROM contents into a BIOS, so an on-board EEPROM would not be necessary.

This is useful if your motherboard's EEPROM has become corrupted, dead, or even removed.

I was always under the impression that you could only boot a corrupt eeprom with a cromwell type bios..a bios that doesn't care about eeprom settings. Can you boot a hacked bios with no eeprom? How?

Xboxgamer733 just told you how. Embed an eeprom in the bios. Then flash it to the chip.

Hello,

I know EvoX M7 supports this feature, but what other bios' support it?

'XBtool' allows you to embed an EEPROM into most Xecuter X2 BIOSes, too.
