Hi all,

I am new here, so I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section. Also, I realise this question has been asked before, but all of the other threads are really old.

So, my issue. I flashed the unlocked A08 bios with sata fix and everything worked brilliantly. Then, in my infinite wisdom I turned on UEFI mode in BIOS to see what would happen. What happened is it rebooted with 8 beeps (no screen) everytime I turned on. I looked at the other forums and did the whole usb recovery thing, however, I believed it was taking to long so I turned the computer off after the computer rebooted and beeped 7 times (cpu error). I tried taking out the CMOS to no avail. Now when I try the recovery USB the usb never seems to be loaded (light never comes on). Any ideas?

Thanks for all the help, and sorry for any mistakes I have no doubt made.

I do not know what to tell you, I also installed the bios mod. then I made ​​changes without knowing what I was doing, and the M14x R1 would not start. I followed that procedure and I put the original bios and then it started.

Your M14x is still under warranty? if yes, call for service and tell them that you put the bios A08 (do not tell him of the bios mod) and you do it repaired.

Ciao :)

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this website also. I hope this is OK to post this message here. I'm thinking about getting an SSD for my M14X R1. I didn't realize the computer didn't recognize SATA 3 with the A08 BIOS until I read about it a few days ago on the Internet (I currently have the A08 BIOS; 2760QM CPU; 8GB of RAM; 3 GB DDR3 Nvidia GeForce 555 video card; Windows 7 Home Premium). With that being said, and the subject in this forum, is it worth the risk in upgrading my BIOS to A08 Unlocked in order to get the full speed of the SSD? Opinions would be appreciated in making this decision. I hate the thought of buying a new drive and it only running at SATA 2 speed.

Thanks

P.S. My computer is also out of warranty.

@Setuptech1 and @daviddoeschl I am in the same boat..I just installed my SSD and am only getting Sata2 speeds. @daviddoeschl you stated that u flashed the bios and everything was brilliant yet? Then you messed it up after. My worry is that if I try this flash my pc will BSOD and have startup issues..it runs fine now just not at Sata3 potential?? Should I use the mod?

      Hi,
      In this thread you can post your requests for AMD-V unlock on ACER E5-553G and same laptops with AMD CPU's, for example Acer Aspire E15, Acer Aspire E5-523G, Acer Aspire E1-522, Acer Aspire E1-420, Acer Aspire E5-421, Acer Aspire V5-123, and etc.
       
      Now we can unlock  AMD-V function for virtualization support. In general, this method described in the article on this link: http://www.geektech.co.nz/how-to-unlock-...enovo-y700
      This way requires Windows as a system because  some tool works only in Windows.
       
      Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/view
      Extract the archive H2OUVE.rar directly on the Desktop and copy the H2OUVE folder directly on the disk C:\
      Then run the Command prompt as Administrator and execute these commands:
      cd  \
       
      cd  H2OUVE
       
      H2OUVE.exe   -gv   vars.txt

      After each command press the Enter button.
      After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in H2OUVE folder.
      Post here this file "vars.txt" or upload it to any fileserver and  send me the link.

      For reference, here's the EFI-table with available settings for this notebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4NHIB...WI4LW14bE0
      And here's the setting that needs to be changed:
      0x1C40B             Setting: SVM support, Variable: 0xEE {05 91 54 02 55 02 54 00 34 12 EE 00 00 10 00 01 00}
      0x1C41C                 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 (default) {09 07 27 00 10 00 00}
      0x1C423                 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 28 00 00 00 01}
