Hi, I recently bought the new Toshiba RC100 m.2 2242 NVMe SSD for my Lenovo Y510p which has an m.2 port in it. After installation the SSD wasn't showing up in my BIOS and also not on my OS Win 10 disk management. So I did a bit of research and installed mod BIOS for my Y510p by following the steps in the link: ( https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/3546-lenovo-y410p-y510p-unlocked-bios-wlan-whitelist-mod-vbios-mod/ ) There are a lot more options in the BIOS menu now. Even after doing the mod it's not showing up. The SSD works on my friend's "new 2017 dell gaming laptop" which has m.2 ssd support in it. I don't know what exactly to configure my BIOS to make it work. I've just done some hit-and-trial configs which have eventually failed. If someone can help solve it Pleasee!! P.S. : I can share all the available options available in the BIOS if required.
Hey Everyone, First off, YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR FLASHING THIS! YOU WILL NOT HOLD ME RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS YOU MAY RUN IN TO BY FLASHING MY MOD! YOU WILL NOT HOLD TECHINFERNO RESPONSIBLE, EITHER! THIS IS YOUR CHOICE! Now on to the good stuff... I've officially cracked it - either by luck or persistence (I'm thinking LUCK, lol) - A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 - FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!) Here is what I've added/updated/modded/changed/etc... ADDED LEGACY SUPPORT FOR THE m18XR2 - You can now run Windows 7 with 900 series nVidia GPU's! Changed the Default GPU from PEG to IGFX - No need to tear down laptop anymore. 8-Beeps are a thing of the PAST! Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v220.127.116.116 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v18.104.22.1686 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132) Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132) Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 22.214.171.124 to v126.96.36.199) ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode for other supported CPU's if available! Sorry, I don't remember what version, but if it could be updated, it was!) Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge Updated GOP Policy for the m18xR2 Raidriar added the "Package C-States Lock" to my bios mod - THANK YOU RAIDRIAR! YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR FLASHING THIS, AS FLASHING CUSTOM BIOS's HAS SOME RISK!! I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOUR PC BY FLASHING THIS MOD!! DOWNLOAD INFO: My BIOS MOD should be available in the download section of TechInferno! They have KINDLY offered to host the file, thankfully! You MUST meet the minimum requirements of T|I in order to download files from their download section! PLEASE NOTE: Do not distribute this file. Please tell others that want the file to download it from TechInferno, as the file is GUARANTEED to be clean if you get it from here. If you download it from anywhere else, there is a chance that the code will be changed, and may BRICK your laptop. Therefore, PLEASE make sure you download from here and ONLY here! I'd like to THANK the following people for testing my bios mods to make sure they are safe for the rest of you: Mr. Fox, Raidriar, Rengsey R.H. Jr! Thanks for testing, I'm grateful! RAIDRIAR, from nbr, needs an EXTRA shoutout for testing. He was UTTERLY amazing! He took risks no sane OR INSANE person would! I owe him for testing this! He deserves a LOT of credit for that! Also, I do have an UPDATE to Intel Management Firmware v8.1.64 (I think), but that is a SEPARATE package. If you are interested, you can do that upgrade, too. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE, if you plan on doing update you MUST do BIOS update FIRST - AGAIN, BIOS UPDATE MUST BE DONE FIRST! AFTER bios update is done, then you can do IME update. If you update the IME then BIOS, YOU WILL BRICK YOUR SYSTEM! YOU MUST DO BIOS FIRST, THEN THE Intel ME Update! If you like this mod that I've done, please donate a couple KEGS of beer to me, as I put a TON of work into this. I put more hours into this than I should have... LoL I can also confirm that this has been tested by MANY people. Mr. Fox, Raidriar, and a few others, and they had NO issues. EXCEPT that they were finally able to install Windows 7 while in legacy mode (set from within bios), and the GPU works completely. The only ting I am still working on is the throttling issue on ALL GPU's (Some worse than others). IF you use Mr. Fox's modded drivers, 355.20 I believe, the throttling issue is minimal with the 780m GPUs. Anything above those drivers seems to throttle all GPU's at a more extreme rate. I AM working on this throttling issue, but I am not sure it's fixable. But I will TRY! Again, I hope you ALL like this, and that it helps you out. Lastly, IF you flash my MOD and you decide to purchase another 900 series GPU, please make sure you use woodstackz, as he sells them at the best rates. Please let him know you are purchasing the GPU because of this mod, as it will help me out a little! I hope you like this! Swick Link To Donate: EDIT: I forgot to put fparts.txt in the rar file with all the other files. sorry about that. I'm including it here on this post! SORRY! PS. I AM working on porting ALL these mods to the m17xR4, but dont know if I can get LEGACY SUPPORT ported! I AM TRYING, but if I can't, I'll be able to port EVERYTHING else... File download link:
nandoo89 posted a topic in General Notebook DiscussionsHi guys! Recently, my SM951 AHCI died and I was looking for a new M.2 PCIe SSD for my XMG U505 (Clevo P751ZM). As I learned, the laptop is not provided with an official BIOS update for NVMe support even though capable of it by hardware. -.- Looking at the market today I feel like it makes no sense getting an overpriced, hard-to-find and "slow" AHCI SSD instead of an NVMe. I read about PremaMods and got very interested in it, also due to the funky story abt it and of course its great tweakabilities. Sounds like a true piece of art to my ears I tried to subscribe to biosmods.wordpress.com but there was no answer by now and it looks like Prema is not active in this forum anymore...? Is there any chance I can still get a download link for the modded BIOS and vBIOS (for my GTX 970M)?
Hi everyone, I'm very happy with this laptop but there is an empty M.2 slot waiting to be filled. The connector seems to offer the right pins for a PCIe x4 SSD like the SM951 but someone at Notebookreview reported that this particular model dosent work. Is it possible that NVME is the problem and other PCIe SSDs should work? Could a BIOS mod help (like inserting BIOS modules)? Can I somehow determine whether the hardware supports PCIe x4 in this M.2 port? I tried reading the PCIe configuration of the CPU with Linux, but can't interpret the result... root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu/Desktop# bash listpcie.sh -t J6B2: x16 PCI Express J6B1: x1 PCI Express J6D1: x1 PCI Express J7B1: x1 PCI Express J8B4: x1 PCI Express root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu/Desktop# bash listpcie.sh -l J6B2: Intel Corporation Sky Lake PCIe Controller Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 122 Bus: primary=00, secondary=01, subordinate=01, sec-latency=0 Capabilities:  Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 2015 Capabilities:  Power Management version 3 Capabilities:  MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit- Capabilities: [a0] Express Root Port (Slot+), MSI 00 Capabilities:  Virtual Channel Capabilities:  Root Complex Link Capabilities: [d94] #19 Kernel driver in use: pcieport J6B1: J6D1: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #5 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16 Bus: primary=00, secondary=04, subordinate=04, sec-latency=0 I/O behind bridge: 0000d000-0000dfff Memory behind bridge: df300000-df3fffff Capabilities:  Express Root Port (Slot+), MSI 00 Capabilities:  MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit- Capabilities:  Subsystem: Dell Device 0706 Capabilities: [a0] Power Management version 3 Capabilities:  Advanced Error Reporting Capabilities:  Access Control Services Capabilities:  #19 Kernel driver in use: pcieport J7B1: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #6 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17 Bus: primary=00, secondary=05, subordinate=05, sec-latency=0 Memory behind bridge: df200000-df2fffff Capabilities:  Express Root Port (Slot+), MSI 00 Capabilities:  MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit- Capabilities:  Subsystem: Dell Device 0706 Capabilities: [a0] Power Management version 3 Capabilities:  Advanced Error Reporting Capabilities:  Access Control Services Capabilities:  L1 PM Substates Capabilities:  #19 Kernel driver in use: pcieport J8B4: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H PCI Express Root Port #7 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18 Bus: primary=00, secondary=06, subordinate=06, sec-latency=0 Memory behind bridge: df100000-df1fffff Capabilities:  Express Root Port (Slot+), MSI 00 Capabilities:  MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit- Capabilities:  Subsystem: Dell Device 0706 Capabilities: [a0] Power Management version 3 Capabilities:  Advanced Error Reporting Capabilities:  Access Control Services Capabilities:  #19 Kernel driver in use: pcieport Maybe someone with a little bit more experience knows what that means.
