If someone wants unlocked bios A12 or A13, A14 then you can download and install original stock bios A12 or A13 or A14  from manufacturer website, then create file backup of your bios.

For creating backup of bios use attached program. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as Administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM or or upload it to any fileserver and post the link.

Hi, When I use this tool, it shows red warnings "Error 201: [FPTw.exe] cannot be run on the current platform. Please contact your vendor."  and "Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash access. Please contact the target system BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers."

What I have is an m17x r4, with 660M and I want to update to 1070. 

would you pls give me some advise?

Can somebody check if the "ATA (BIOS HDD) Password" (or equivalent) option becomes available in the unlocked BIOS version? This is to allow for self-encryption of certain SSDs. Thanks

Hey all!

I have AW m17x R4 with 7970m graphics, I am thinking of changing to GTX 1060. I've been reading a lot and I had the following doubts:

 

1. I currently have BIOS A15, is it necessary to unlock it?
2. My screen is 60hz (not 3D) is it necessary to change it?
3. Should I update the vBios on the graphics card I bought (GTX 1060 MXM)?
4. How can I generate the nvdmi.inf adapted to my serial ID?

 

Thank you very much for all the information I read.
