klimu replied to timohour's topic in Dell Latitude, Vostro, and PrecisionAre there any benefits of having non U bios in an U E6430? I can see that bluetooth module is installed but not accessible to the system. Also I can see 4 sata channels where there should be 2 and some additional battery options but there is no hardware for a docking station. In the system I can also see accelerometer in the device manager (with an error) for free fall security, but it's impossible to install standard magnetic drive in this notebook. So for now I can only see negative "features" but someone did it for some reason.
klimu replied to timohour's topic in Dell Latitude, Vostro, and Precisionhello, I have purchased an used dell E6430U laptop. Problem is that it has bios from E6430 (without U). I have tried the official bioses for U nad non-U versions without any luck. Always after restart nothing is changing. Is it possible to reprogramm the bios chip without removing it from the motherboard?
