What is BCP?

We're back with another hot, piping serving of Acronym Soup with an acronym we mention whenever we talk about AMI's various BIOS/UEFI Utilities. Today we're getting a taste of AMI BCP, one of AMI's BIOS/UEFI utility tools.

BCP stands for BIOS Configuration Program and is one of the numerous BIOS utility tools offered by AMI. The BCP utility is supported by AMI's Aptio® firmware and allows OEMs to customize parameters in an Aptio ROM image without the need to rebuild the BIOS. There are several parameters that can be modified using BCP. Some modifiable parameters include:
Aptio® system setup configuration
View/edit default boot order
View/edit DMI/SMBIOS tables
View/edit Aptio strings
Edit register tables

For OEMs working with x86, x64 and ARM architectures, BCP is supported on all three platforms.

    Hello, Is AMIBCP free? I need this in order to enable Virtualization on the laptop I am going to purchase. If it is not free, how much do I need to pay for it? Can I purchase a single license for myself? Thanks.
