[M14x R2] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

Recommended Posts

I know this is an old thread but I wanted to give a heads up. I had had bios version A09 on my MX14R2 and tried to force flash it to a stock Dell bios A03 by downloading the A03 version from the Dell website, putting to a fat 32 formatted USB and then renaming it to m14R2.hdr. I plugged it in (left USB port) and held the end key then plugged in the AC adapter, got beeps for about 2-3 minutes then it sat on a black screen for over twenty minutes (I let it sit because I didn't want to shut it down). I knew it was toast when it was sitting there, I couldn't shut it of by holding the power button I had to open it up and unplug the battery and afterwards received no power whatsoever to the system, nothing. I got a motherboard replacement and that resolved the issue - not fun. I wouldn't recommend anyone trying to downgrade to an A03 from A09 because I'm pretty sure I did it just right and it failed.

Has anyone tried this and verified that it works? I have tried other options, trying to get .fd file to flash and nothing seems to be working. I have no idea what to do next. Thanks.

I don't think there is Unlocked A14, at least i haven't been able to find it. The latest one is A13 but it should work just fine, even with windows 10.

Look here for more info: http://forum.techinferno.com/alienware-m14x-aw-14/4667-m14x-r2-a13-unlocked-bios-modified-vbios-now-available.html

Is there a guide to disabling the Internal graphics card and only using the 650m? Thanks for unlocking the BIOS.
