A bios modder named “The Wiz”Â with the help of fellow modders “kizwan” and “httuner” has finally managed to unlock the elusive Dell Phoenix bios used in the Alienware M17x-R2. So what does this mean for Alienware M17x-R2 owners? For starters, it opens the door to more memory and CPU configuration options and possibly the ability to add non-Dell video card id’s for future GPU upgrades (e.g. AMD 6970M Crossfire). The Wiz estimates that the soon-to-be-released unlocked bios will have 7 new menus with 50 accompanying options–wow! Click on the source link to learn more about the M17x-R2 bios unlock.
