I release here today my personal BIOS for the M18x R2. It is based upon svl7's unlocked A11, Swick's mods to A11, and I have changed back the boot images to default Alienware and Intel logos, as well as reverted the atheros LAN oprom back to the default version that does not take up extra boot time. All other modifications done by swick and svl7 remain intact. Copy files from zip to root of usb in a usb-dos environment, run flash.bat. Simple. Tested by me on two of my M18x R2 systems, works without issue. I take no responsibility if you brick your system, flash at your own risk. Only thing left to do is to somehow enable 2133 for sandy bridge CPU in M18x R2 motherboard.
Remember, give thanks to svl7 and swick for their initial work on this. I release this freely to the public, nobody should pay for this.
I know, i know, i know... @svl7 said it's disabled, @octiceps said it's disabled and many other forum users said it's disabled.
I am always want to double check everything and i did it this time too. And i would like to post here result of my research. But first thing first - my PC:
Laptop Configuration: Lenovo Y500 SLI
CPU: Intel i7-3630QM (2400-3400 MHz, Ivy Bridge, QuadCore)
VGA: 2x 2048Mb NVIDIA GeForce GT650M (SLI Configuration)
MB: Compal LA-8692P
RAM: 2x 4Gb Ramaxel RMT3160ED58E9W1600 (11-11-11-28)
HDD: 1TB Seagate Momentus 5400 (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB)
SSD: 120 Gb Samsung 850 EVO (MGX S4LN062X01)
Display: 15.6" LG\Philips LP156WF1-TLC1 (1920x1080)
WIN: MS Windows 10 Pro (x64)
Also i must say, that i have got UNLOCKED BIOS by @svl7. And for second VGA too.
It's beginning from @geraldthread about his Ultrabay to PCI-E Adapter for Lenovo Y510p for useing Radeon Desktop VGAs as external VGA. It's performed well with Y510p, but there was zero info about how it perform on Y500 or will it perform at all (now we know that it's no, but it's another story). Unlocked BIOS didn't help with adapter and i decided to dig more deep in re-enabling integrated GPU in Intel CPU - Intel HD Graphics 4000. And new unlocked BIOS give me a lot of new options to play. But important thing is... some of them working, some of them no. So, here is what i am founded.
First i go to new unlocked BIOS and saw there a lot new tabs.
I go to Advanced => Video Configuration => Special Features
This option already was Enabled (Switch Graphic Function)
After that i go to Internal Graphic Device and Enable Internal Graphics Device.
Then save changes and exit. Laptop is shutdown and after few seconds turn on again. I saw Lenovo loading screen and then nothing when loading complete. Windows didn't start.
I am restarted laptop three times and it's started recovery mode. From recovery mode i am loaded Safe Mode and at that point i am finally was at Windows.
My first way goes to Device Manager to see new device. And there was new device - Intel HD Graphics 4000.
In safe mode windows can't access to it's current status, but there also was no error codes. First time there was no driver installed, but now it's even have last driver!
After that i go to AIDA64 Engineer Edition and look what it's show me. It's saw iGPU!
So, at this point i don't what to think about it. I can see iGPU in safe mode, but i can't boot with it in normal Windows. Is AIDA64 lie to me or even Device Manager?
What do your think about it?
P.S. Oh yeah, most menus on Russian language, but i hope your got the idea and trust me. =) It's no fake.
Hi, i have some questions about my laptop compatibilty for a egpu
Intel Core i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50GHz
Intel HD Graphics 520
8 GB RAM DDR3 1600 MHz
so the first question i have, is possible adapt a desktop graphic card to this laptop? i see in this forum about similar models can do it, but what you do think about?
the wifi adapter is a Intel AC 3165 wich is connected to a NGFF port of the laptop, so i will need the NGFF version of the EXP GDC adapter... i am correct in this???
im think get a GTX 1070 or a 1060, the bandwhich of the NGFF port, and the cpu of my laptop have power enougth to use the 1070 or i'll be better a samller graphic card?
other question is what i need to change in the bios to enable correctly the eGPU?
your help be useful to me thanks
pd: sorry for my bad english :/
I have a m6600 laptop with i7-2760qm, 8gb ram and a firepro m8900 gfx. I'm looking for a good gfx upgrade for better gaming performance (especially fallout 4). I've locked down on two candidates: FIrepro M6100 and Quadro k4000m. Here's the ebay links for both. The seller assured me that the cards will be compatible with my laptop.
I would like to hear some great advices from all you pros, especially if you have hands on experience on either cards in your m6600 lappy:
1. I wonder if m6100 would be an easier option for my lappy since it's AMD product like my m8900
2. I wonder if I go k4000m do I need to change my x-bracket, rearrange thermal pads or even need to change the heatsink (sorry I haven't changed a laptop gfx before)
I'm in favor of k4000m since it has twice the video memory, more ROPs and TMUs which is great for gaming. M6100 may run a bit cooler and has more OC potential (it has 1050mhz gpu base clock vs 600 for K4000M). All in all, I'm choosing between an underclocked GTX 660 and a HD 7790, though I could bring the K4000M clock up a bit. But Nvidia cards are more optimized for gaming. What's your thought folks?
Of course if you have better options especially if there's anyone has upgraded to gaming cards like GTX 680M, HD 7970M or 760M, 765M, 675M, etc I'm eager to hear from you folks.
Thanks for your inputs!
