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?

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.
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.
Just new to this forum I would like to ask if it is possible to remove the whitelist protection of my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 notebook.
So I can mount my own WWAN SIerra wireless card to the Yoga.
I think I have all the tools (SPI prgrammer and so).
Dump of BIOS is attached.
Correction: max file size is 1MB, so it is NOT attached, but I have it available of course.
I would love to have my BIOS modded to disable the wireless whitelist.
I tried to do it myself (dump BIOS from chip, disassemble, locate the reference to the error message "Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in..." memory address and modify the condition in the binary file so not to "land" in the infinite loop) but I couldn't dig to anything meaningful I could easily change.
