Alienware M18x R1
A list of various Alienware M18x R1 BIOS / VBIOS files.
[M18x R1] - A05 'unlocked' - RST OROM 11.5.zip
By svl7From the author:
Patched this together on request, M18x R1 BIOS A05 (unlocked) with the RST 11.5 OROM.
The orom comes from the station-drivers site, not sure whether it will work fine with the M18x, though I don't really see why it shouldn't.
Btw, something's weird with the original orom in the R1 BIOS, the checksum is wrong... confusing.
Anyway, here's the BIOS, let me know how it performs. Also remember to use the latest RST driver for this ROM.
Flash with your favorite BIOS utility or the tools provided by Dell.
As always, use at your own risk..
By Swick1981So, here is another version of the m18xR1 bios for your enjoyment.
Bios Version: A05
Update Version: 2.0
**WARNING: PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR INTEL ME(Intel Management Engine) MUST BE THE ORIGINAL. If' you've updated, please make sure you downgrade back to stock Intel ME! **
I've updated the following:
Unlocked A05 (slv7's unlocked version)
Atheros LAN ROM 188.8.131.52
vbios 2171 (latest)
M.2 support (with adapter needed)
And more... (But these are all I can remember)
This version RST will work with RAID, TRIM for RAID, etc...
*** This is the MOST STABLE VERSION! ***
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
(On a side note - if ANYONE is willing, I MIGHT know how to get legacy to work on 800m+ video cards. But I need GOOD testers that know how to recovery flash and POTENTIALLY use SPI programmers in case of bad flash)! PM me if interested!
m18xR1 Modded Bios.rar
By Swick1981Hey Everyone,
I am attaching a COUPLE of BIOS's to be flashed on the m18xR1 -
This one is based off of SVL7's unlocked bios. I've updated SEVERAL items on it.
**WARNING: PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR INTEL ME(Intel Management Engine) MUST BE THE ORIGINAL. If' you've updated, please make sure you downgrade back to stock Intel ME!
1) UNLOCKED BIOS
2) Intel RST v13.5.0 (Understand that this MIGHT NOT work with RAID. It should, but some people had trouble - you can downgrade to the v12 that I've poasted it you have any trouble!)
3) CPU Micro Code has been updated
4) NIC Firmware
5) Video Bios (On-Board)
6) M.2 Support (Through an adapter - but adapter will be recognized)
7) there are SEVERAL other updates but I just can't remember them all, lOl! (Sorry)
Version A05-v2.0 is probably better as it is the most stable. I'd SERIOUSLY suggest using that version. IF you want to use this, just understand it MIGHT cause you trouble with RAID... (It worked for some, and didn't work for others)
(On a side note - if ANYONE is willing, I MIGHT know how to get legacy to work on 800m+ video cards. But I need GOOD testers that know how to recovery flash and POTENTIALLY use SPI programmers in case of bad flash)! PM me if interested)
