Dasharo Product Guidelines: SMBIOS Information
This document describes the guidelines for filling in the SMBIOS fields in devices supported by Dasharo. It is meant to be used primarily as a reference for Dasharo developers.
BIOS Information (Type 0)
The Vendor field, for firmware with release date after 13 January 2022, is set as follows:
For firmware with release date before 13 January 2022:
3mdeb Embedded Systems Consulting
BIOS Version field
The BIOS Version string is defined as follows:
Dasharo ([major_framework]+[minor_framework]) v[version]
major_frameworkrefers to the primary framework in which the firmware is developed, e.g.
minor_frameworkis the secondary framework, a supporting component for the primary framework, e.g. a coreboot payload. May not always be used, e.g. if
edk2is used as the primary framework.
versionmeans version according to official Dasharo Versioning documentation.
For TianoCore UEFIPayloadPkg, we use the simpler and more recognizable UEFI name.
Dasharo (coreboot+UEFI) v1.0.0- for coreboot-based builds with TianoCore UEFIPayload
Dasharo (coreboot+SeaBIOS) v1.0.0- for coreboot-based builds with SeaBIOS payload
Dasharo (coreboot+Heads) v1.0.0- for coreboot-based builds with Heads payload
Dasharo (UEFI) v1.0.0- for plain edk2-based builds
System Information (Type 1)
Devices with an existing BIOS implementation
In this case, set all the fields that are relevant (excluding BIOS version and vendor) to the same values as the stock firmware.
To obtain SMBIOS values from the stock firmware, either:
- Obtain the
fwdump-dockerlogs from 3mdeb cloud
dmidecode -t 1on the machine itself
Devices with no existing BIOS implementation
In the case where the device does not have an existing supported BIOS or the client chooses to use different SMBIOS fields (e.g. to make it easier to differentiate devices), refer to the SMBIOS specification v3.5.0.
