Hello CodeRush,

 

It bricked my laptop... I followed post 772...

It started nice, suddenly the laptop was off. I waited a few more minutes and tried to switch it on.

No response at all........ ;-(((

 

Any sugestions?

 

Thanks....

{censored}.

Now you need hardware SPI programmer to dump your current BIOS, make new working image from that dump and then flash it back.

Because it's a laptop and SPI chip is soldered to the board, you also need to desolder and resolder it. 

I will add a warning to the FAQ.

If you have a non-ended warranty - just use it now.

yes, there's a dos version too, but to edit the dump from dos is pain ;)

even I don't suggest to unlock SMM, as it's a security feature

 

 

Hi, my primary interest is to enable NVRAM write capabilities on my MSI Z77-G45 board, the bios is this one: http://download7.msi.com/download_files/bos_exe/7752v2B.zip

 

I don't understand completely which bytes are responsible for the NVRAM lock. The SMI Lock seems to be disabled but I cannot write to nvram. Is it the BIOS Interface Lock?

FranticJohny,

 

I'm aware of the NVRAM write problems on some boards, same here on my ASUS P8Z77V-LX,

but before I owned a GA-Z77-D3H where NVRAM write was enabled.

A SCE NVRAM-Dump from such a board would be useful to compare what's the difference!

 

best regards

Hey guys, so I've tried everything possible to patch the bios on my motherboard (MSI 990FXA-GD65) and PMPatch doesn't seem to like it. Can anybody help me out or patch my bios for me?

I was able to create a backup of my bios using the method from #772, but it still was unpatchable. Here's the link to my bios: http://us.msi.com/service/download/bios-22418.html

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I had no success with SCEWIN on my Win8.1 UEFI system. The binary file doesn't execute, there is an error of Loading DeviceDriver. I found out, for my board there is a utility from MSI where SCEWIN is also integrated, but with the same error.

 

Could you upload your linux version then I will dump from a live distro.

 

I remember there is a bios version where I have nvram write support, but there is no Windows 8 Mode and no possibility to disable CSM. I could flash the old bios to compare with the new one... If you know where to look? Guess there are quite a lot changes with GOP and secure boot etc.

With my X79, BIOS 3305 was the last to have writable NVRAM. If I were to use sce to dump the NVRAM from my current BIOS and 3305 could that help figuring out how to remove the NVRAM lock?

Riley Freeman, it's locked because of SecureBoot requirement and can't be unlocked by modifying any NVRAM variable, AFAIK.

badaxe2, here. You can always do it yourself by following the guide in my signature, it's easier then it looks. :)

Thanks Code Rush, is there any reason for it being much smaller than the one I uploaded ?

If you don't wanna wait » coderush explained manual unlock X79 PM « a few days ago.

Hm, I checked the modules but did not find one of the patterns:

C:\Users\SEO\Desktop\DUMP>sfk hexfind -pat "/0FBA6C24380F/" -dir .
[total hits/matching patterns/non-matching patterns]
613 files checked, 0 files matched.

Sorry!
