Hi!

Please read the first post of this thread. This method requires Windows as a system because necessary tool works only in Windows. You can try to boot in Windows from Live CD or USB flash drive.

Hi.  I had tried to do this myself following some instructions online, and I was successful at getting Windows to report that I had enabled virtualization, but that seems to be a lie, as VirtualBox still says that I don't have it.  I'm on an Acer Aspire E5-553G.  I thought maybe you'd be more successful.  Also, there isn't an edit that will expose any advanced BIOS menu, is there?

Hello!

You can check if your laptop (CPU and bios) now support for real virtualization with this nice utility:  https://www.grc.com/securable.htm

I checked it with that tool, and it replied that it does support virtualization, which wasn't a surprise because the CPU is an A12 and so rather new.  If there is anything that doesn't support virtualization, I think it would have to be the motherboard, but it seems weird that a 1 year old machine wouldn't support that.    Am I doing it right?  Is it just changing the one byte on line 000000E0  from 00 to 01?   Doing that DOES make windows report virtualization on instead of off, but VirtualBox still says it is off and chokes.

      Hey guys, I have an Alienware m14x R2, and I have been trying to get access to the BIOS so that I can change the boot options (Everything is locked, I am unsure if someone set a password of if these are locked by default).I've tried updating the BIOS, and resetting the CMOS and nothing has changed this. Would anyone know if there are other options I can explore? Thank you.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad X250, X260.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating your personal bios dump and to flash your bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

      Hi all,
       
      It has been a while since I did anything to my laptop (Clevo P670RG-G) and since I recently got a VR Headset I wish I could overclock my GPU a little. So far the NVidia software (on windows) doesn't allow me to overclock it (the linux sort of allows, which some custom Xorg options) so I decided to give a try modding the vbios.
       
      I read all sorts of issues / guides about it, and it seens that the hardware topology (where the vbios is stored and how things are connected) changes from machine to machine.
       
      What I know about my laptop is that it has two VBios, one for Hybrid Mode and one for Discrete Mode. I'm currently running the discrete mode.
       
      I dumped my VBios using GPU-z and opened up in Maxwell II Bios Tweaker. Everything seens fine so far.
       
      So I have few questions about it:
       
      - There is a way to just unlock the VBios to show the overclocking options in NVidia software? (That way I dont need to reflash to change clocks)
      - I can just flash this GPU-z dump to my VBios?
      - If I brick my GPU, that GPU-z dumped image is the raw SPI image, so if I managed to physically access the VBios, I can just reflash over it?
      - I saw some people saying that I might need as well to flash the main laptop bios as well, is that really needed?
       
      Thanks!
