Dell recently posted a new BIOS for the M11x R3 on their support site - A05.

Grab it here: M11x R3 - BIOS A05

Release notes:

Quote
Modify SCU resolution to 1024 x 768 for meet Windows 8 requirement.

Security Issue - Once user password option enabled, system request the Password to enter the boot device

Since that's only half the fun I also unlocked the hidden menus, see attachment. ;)

As always with modified BIOS - use at your own risk, don't change anything you aren't familiar with.

Hello,

I'm new to this forum.

I own an Alienware M11X R3 for 6 months and I'm very happy with it.

What is the advantage to unlock hidden menu in the BIOS ? What does it offer ?

I'm very excited about this bios! It was recommended by the folks over at NotebookReview so the good word travels quick, eh?

Edit: Don't suppose that there are any tutorials on all these new options?

I set the memory speed to 1600 in the chipset tab and also tried xmp profiles in the memory overclocking tab, no effect.

Notebookreview sent me here. Does this bios has options for fan speed/ temperature settings?

Edit: Flashed unlocked Bios and was so happy, to see an option to change fanspeeds and temp tables. But changing anything there does absolutely nothing. :(

Can't wait to give this a try. Since both my M11x's are out of warranty I may as well play around with one of them to see what I can do. Cheers!

Think this is viable for forcing turbo boost to always be max?

Just flashed this and have not noticed any change to menus from my stock a03.

Nevermind, it seems that I accidentally flashed the stock a05 again, after realizing there is a huge amount of stuff unlocked!

Great job!

I think so, why not testing Intel XTU? Got 104.5+ Mhz bclock on my i5 2467m with this ;)

I am very curious about this bios mod. I was wondering what other hidden options are unlocked? Would I be able to use ThrottleStop to force max turbo by using this unlocked bios or overclock the BCLK? Would be glad to hear from all the M11X R3 owners who have done this bios mod. Any help would be appreciated.

I am curious. How did you overclock the BCLK to 104.5? Could you please let me know? What is the max limit you raised the BCLK on your system and was it stable?

I was able to overclock the BCLK from 99 to about 105 on my i7 2617 using Intel XTU after installing the modified bios. Granted, it is only a small boost but it has helped in shaving off some time in video rendering.

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      Hi all.
      I'm trying to update my ASUS G73SW laptop with a new GPU card. 
      Originally it comes with the great GTX 460m, which still nowadays runs AAA games (OpenGL 4.5 and DX11, medium and high settings, 1600x900 resolution).
      I own a GTX 780m DELL card bought 6 years ago with the intention of doing the upgrade, however circumstances of life made me to concentrate only in work (IT) and the project was forgotten.
      Now I'm taking back the project again. That's why I come here for help.
      Is it possible someone of you could help me in modding the attached BIOS (info extracted with BIOS Backup Tools 12.2) to support the GTX 780m DELL card?
      Links with result.rar from BIOS Backup Tools 12.2:
      https://www.sendspace.com/file/15om7i
      or
      https://www39.zippyshare.com/v/HlOxLCUg/file.html
       
      In case you need vbios for GTX 780m:

      Thanks in advance!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p.
      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 bios backup and to flash 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.
