    120Hz models! NV v361.75 previously installed, set refresh rate to 60Hz before uninstalling drivers. DDU uninstall "Clean and restart",  Options: uncheck "Remove present and non-present monitors"

    I removed my previous intel drivers in safe mode using ddu. I was running peg with no Intel driver installed at all. After reboot windows comes to black screen and the restore point didn't save with previous working drivers. I am trying to see what's possible as I somehow need to install the drivers in safe mode but without signature verification and I'm not sure if that's possible. I'm guessing maybe installing Intel driver in safe mode may let me boot to start over again though I wanted to avoid that. Windows is also set to neverase update video drivers in Windows 10 as per DDU. Any ideas other than what I stated above?

      I release here today my personal BIOS for the M18x R2. It is based upon svl7's unlocked A11, Swick's mods to A11, and I have changed back the boot images to default Alienware and Intel logos, as well as reverted the atheros LAN oprom back to the default version that does not take up extra boot time. All other modifications done by swick and svl7 remain intact. Copy files from zip to root of usb in a usb-dos environment, run flash.bat. Simple. Tested by me on two of my M18x R2 systems, works without issue. I take no responsibility if you brick your system, flash at your own risk. Only thing left to do is to somehow enable 2133 for sandy bridge CPU in M18x R2 motherboard.
       
      Remember, give thanks to svl7 and swick for their initial work on this. I release this freely to the public, nobody should pay for this.

      No issue up to now, everything is stable, easy and cheap setup. However, Nvidia Optimus isn't working with latest Nvidia drivers.

       - Samsung T3 Portable SSD - 250GB (for Windows To Go)
       - DC 12V/12.5A from Aliexpress
       
      Setup:
       - Install Windows 10 as Windows To Go with Rufus;
       - Install Bootcamp;
       - Reboot to Windows with Akitio connected and install latest Nvidia Driver;
       
      System Start:
       - Connect External SSD with Windows To Go to your Mac;
       - Power up and hold down ALT keyboard;
       - Connect Akitio and wait 2-4 minutes;
