How to extract DSDT from Lenovo G560 ?

"The Differentiated System Description Table is the main table in the ACPI part of a computer's BIOS.

The Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) defines a large number of tables that provide the interface between an ACPI-compliant operating system and system firmware. These allow description of system hardware in a platform-independent manner in ACPI Machine Language (AML)."


Well, since the Bios of my G560 is really poor I have to extract the DSDT somehow to get my OS working perfectly.

Any idea how to do this?

I'll be curious to compare it to mine of g470 which as some mistakes I'd like to report to the BIOS team is there a process for that ?
