    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Note: This page is no longer updated, I am not taking requests anymore. Please do not PM me, because I will not respond. Other people have graciously posted their unlocked BIOS's within this thread, so you will have to do some searching to find the right one. I may come back to unlocked more later... I just don't have any time. Sorry. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to my unlocked BIOS thread for MSI G-series gaming notebooks! Anytime you see an asterisk (*), it means that pictures for that part are included in the 2nd post. Introduction: In this thread you will find a list of MSI G-series gaming notebooks with their BIOS’ fully unlocked. Just about every feature that MSI has hidden is now available to be changed by the end user. This thread may be of particular interest to techies who love to squeeze every ounce of performance out of their notebooks or even the average person who is looking for a particular feature that has previously been locked. Should I Flash These BIOS? Anyone that owns one of the listed MSI G-Series notebooks is eligible. Who this does NOT apply to: - If you are afraid to brick your notebook, this is NOT for you. There is always a possibility for errors and accidents to occur. - If you do not understand what any or most of these acronyms mean, this is NOT for you. You will probably find little use for the unlocked features and the potential for risk is much greater than the reward. Who this applies to: - If you have an understanding of most of this thread and are willing to learn, continue reading. - If you are an enthusiast who loves modding and overclocking and have experience with this field, continue reading. Features: So what are these features that MSI had locked out? A short list would include: *- XMP RAM support (Up to 2133Mhz) [Warning: 4 DIMMs at 1866Mhz(+) may not be stable, 2 DIMMs are stable at 2133Mhz]. - BCLK Overclocking (Up to 5%, your mileage may vary, no guarantees). - TPL limits unlocked (With the combination of ThrottleStop, CPU throttling can be overcome). Necessary Tools & Knowledge: We’re going to need a couple things before we start flashing: 1. A bootable USB drive in DOS/ME/98. Guides can be found all over the internet. 2. The required BIOS file(s) for your specific notebook. 3. AC Adapter plugged into notebook. 4. Some common sense and bravery. Disclaimer: I claim no responsibility for any accident, damage, or brick caused by this, nor do I guarantee any technical assistance. Flash at your own risk. I am in no way affiliated to MSI, nor is MSI obligated to provide any support with these files. Proceed with caution! Your notebook's warranty will be compromised in the event of a repair! Redistribution of these files is not permitted without prior approval from me. You must contact me BEFORE you plan on hosting them. Thank you. Directions: 1. Add the three (3) files: "BIOS".ROM, AFUDOS.exe and update.bat to your flash drive. The root folder works best. Double check the READ ME.txt that you are about to flash the correct BIOS for your notebook. 2. Plug in USB drive and shut down your notebook. 3. Power on the notebook and during POST hit F11. This will bring up the boot menu, select your USB drive and hit enter. 4. In DOS, type:* This will start the flashing process. Warning: Once you hit enter, you CANNOT stop the flashing process. If you interrupt it via shutdown or remove its power source, you will brick your notebook with 100% certainty. 5. Sit back and wait for the process to complete itself. Note: Your fan will spin at 100% speed, it will be very loud. This is normal. Once your BootBlock has been verified and the command prompt comes back up, the process is complete.* Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart your notebook and hit Delete to enter the BIOS. If your BIOS looks exactly the same as before and the flashing process came back with no errors, then you have to boot into Windows and shut down your notebook, NOT restart. Then check it out. Warning: The BIOS might reset the SATA mode into RAID. Please double check in the 'Advanced' tab that it is set to whichever mode you were using or else your boot manager may get corrupted. If this does happen, you will need to use your Windows 7 CD and repair the start-up process. Downloads: This part is under construction! More will be added. Taking requests as well.

Case 1: In case of a GOOD flash, but you still cannot enter BIOS or boot into Windows: Common symptoms include: Endless looping reboots, inability to access the BIOS, permanent black screen, persistent BSODs in Windows or stuttering. The most likely cause was that your image was successfully overwritten, but some values may have changed internally and the BIOS may be having a hard time accepting them. If everything was a success and your notebook boots into one of the situations mentioned above, before trying a blind-flash recovery, UNPLUG the wire leading to your CMOS battery for 5-10 seconds.* This will RESET the stored values in the BIOS to their defaults. If this does not solve the problem, then a blind-flash will be required. Case 2: In case of a BAD flash, a blind-flash will be required. 1. Remove any files from your USB that aren't the necessary bootable DOS files. 2. Pick a ROM you want to flash (doesn't have to be the original), but it MUST be one for your notebook specifically. 3. Rename the file.ROM to AMIBOOT.ROM and put it on your flash drive. 4. Plug in your flash drive in a USB 2.0 slot. 5. As soon as your notebook turns on and nothing is displayed, spam Ctrl + Home (In my case, the MS-16F2 is Ctrl + Fn + PgUp or Ctrl + Shift + NumPad 7). 6. You should hear four (4) beeps and the BIOS should begin flashing itself. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Redistribution of these files is not permitted without prior approval from me.

    Hi! Yes, to unlock your bios, send me your file bios backup from your laptop. For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the backup tool as Administrator (right click mouse). Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM or or upload it to any fileserver and post the link. https://www.sendspace.com/file/mxoavw or http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/NC9WuxRI/file.html

    Depends on the game and the fps target. for 60fps gaming its fine. 144Hz some single threaded games may see a cpu bottleneck with the 1070 ti.

    The best performing drivers for me right now are the 425.31 with the j95 standard inf for PEG. The performance is so good actually that it makes me smile sometimes. It's crazy to get such good performance on a mobile platform. I don't really trust Prema, as he has released crippled bioses and refused to update them in the past (I own a Eurocom). But his buddy j95's driver inf's are pretty good. For example, Prema released a "V2" bios for my specific model that added a 78 degree limit on the GPU, whereas with the "V1" version there was a 92 degree limit. That's 14 degrees of headroom, in my opinion that is definitely crippling a mobile gaming system. Anyway, any driver beyond 425.31 removes the boost ability on mobile cards so that's a definite no-go for me. I can play Wolfenstein New Order right now with all settings maxed out at 2048x1152 at a constant 60fps, butter smooth and the GPU (980m) only hits ~65 degrees when it's constantly boosting (1228mhz) at 60 percent load. That's pretty impressive. I did massively reduce voltages in my custom gtx980m bios but I haven't had a single driver crash or bsod with my custom bios so there seems to be tons of headroom for reducing voltages on the maxwell "2" cards (900 series). Right now in a 72 degree room, my gpu will never reach it's thermal limit, The highest I've seen is ~85 when doing long periods of CUDA video encoding at 100 percent load. Note: The 425.31 driver inf for Windows 7 is erroneously listed as version 435.31 in his Mega download folder. J95 driver infs mega link - https://mega.nz/#F!N6RVAKyK!NiT4iTslHkIr0bHWvvrgPQ On Windows 7 you may need to install Nvidia Inspector by orbmu2k and run it with the launch option -multidisplaypowersaver to stop the card from constantly changing P states. This doesn't happen in Windows 10. You can then add whatever programs to the Multi Display Power Saver 2D or 3D list. It will automatically then force those Pstates for your programs in the list. You don't really need this on Windows 10 but I find that using the maximum performance setting in Nvidia control panel in conjunction with Multi Display Power Saver is the only way to ensure maximum boost at all times. Like I mentioned earlier, anything beyond 425.31 completely disables boost on mobile cards. As an aside, right now I am on Windows 10 v1809 (The last version without DX 12 ray tracing extensions) with 425.31 and I get excellent performance. I just add whatever game to the Multi Display Power Saver "3D" list and set the performance setting for that game in Nvidia Control Panel to "prefer maximum performance." Obviously it's up to you to tweak your individual games as well. Most of the time support is stopped on a game before all of the performance fixes are found and implemented. I've found many simple tweaks that massively helped performance and things like stuttering in games. Most of the time I just disable DOF either in the game settings or by config tweak and that's enough. It eats performance and is a completely useless effect. In real life the second you look at something, it comes into focus. DOF just blurs the background no matter what which is a dumb effect. I also disable any post-process antialiasing which is not needed on high resolution monitor. Usually 2x msaa or no msaa is fine depending on the resolution. So for me basically, all effects like shadows and lighting, tesselation, lod bias etc. as high as they go, and keep post-process effects to the minimum including DOF, motion blur, any kind of blur really and dumb effects like that. Like, blur is okay on a desktop gui, but definitely not in any video games. Totally useless effect imho and very gpu intensive. I don't know a single game actually where any kind of blur including DOF made it look any better. You need Nvidia Inspector, not Nvidia Profile Inspector. They are two different programs but both made by orbmu2k. orbmu2k blog with link for nvidia inspector → https://orbmu2k.de/tools/nvidia-inspector-tool

    There's not any screen available. Only one possible mod - install eDP panel with additional soldering (look previous pages).

    SecurAble utility show that virtualization already enabled. Are you sure that Intel (VMX) Virtualization Technology disabled in bios? If you sure, then Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/viewExtract 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.

    Yes. Still available Now the new integrated version is available. The SATA and Ultrabay that connects eGPU is now on a single board. Also, a chip is integrated on the board to handle SMBUS signals so that BIOS modification is not needed for the new board. Plz note the new board is not compatible with the old 3D printed case.

    Replying here just to say wow. You guys are amazing modders! The screen mod and bios mod are way beyond my capacity to do, but I love seeing you guys succeed in pushing the limits of our 2570p. One question: I did a mod to enable the Bluetooth part of my wifi-bt combo card (soldering wifi slots' unpowered pins to the dock's usb pins. Does that mean no more WWAN modding for me because I already used the dock's usb pins? Again, great job, guys!

    Well its working good when not charging, when charging the screen begins to flicker. The wire is probably too long so it picks up interference.

    To be honest I have no idea what bios works for you, maybe @Baked or @Klem Knows. With the vbios, I would advise you to be careful, just you have optimus, but still dont forget to make a backup of your current vbios BTW: post a picture of inside of your laptop and show me which ones you thought are the 3 extra VRAMS

    I wrote a guide on this on reddit. ill just copy paste the whole thing. its more than hardware and aim. it could be psychological or as you said strategical. EDIT: might also wanna look at TheWarOwl's channel. search youtube n0thing tips, he usually narrates his mindset as he is playing. very useful.
