HP MCP61PM-HM (Nettle3) 5.17 With Unlocked Overclocking Options

Here is the most recent unlocked BIOS for the HP Nettle 3:

THIS IS IT WORKING BIOS FOR Nettle3 MCP61PM-HM v2.1 and 2.2

PRIMARY:
GeForce6100PM-M2 (V7.0/V7.1) http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product...20&LanID=9
.bin  61M27604.bin (Size: 1 MB / Downloads: 545)

.bin  M801W_10.BIN (Size: 1 MB / Downloads: 515)

NEW TEST BIOS:
See http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-HP...ht=nettle3
PC Chips A15G Series

Added:
AMD Phenom II processor (Socket AM3) / AMD Phenom processor (Socket AM2+) /AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core/ Athlon 64 / Sempron processor
Support 95W Phenom II X6 processors
4 x Serial ATA 3.0Gb/s devices
RAID0, RAID1, RAID0+1, RAID5 configuration

Overclock with Ntune System Tools to find more settings http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_syst..._6.10.html

Also hit Ctrl + F1 in bios for more unhidden BIOS features

TESTED CPU's
AMD AM2+ Phenom x4 9150e 1.8GHz 65w
AMD AM3 Athlon II 245 2.9GHz 65w -OVERCLOCKED with Nvidia System Tools to 3.4GHz
AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 3.4GHz C3 125w BLACK EDITION Passed Prime95

CAUTION: IF using a (CPU) Processor higher than 95w you will need to UPGRADE to an AFTERMARKET Heatsink. The one that came stock with the HP/COMPAQ computer is not good enough for a high wattage processor

To clarify the instructions on Linux Using Ubuntu Live CD (11.04) (RECOMMENDED FLASH PROCEDURE)

Have files on flash drive...

open terminal
sudo apt-get install subversion
Ubuntu software center (search libpci)
install Linux PCI Utilities (Development files)

Now do (in terminal):
svn co svn://coreboot.org/flashrom/trunk flashrom
cd flashrom
make
sudo make install

navigate to flash drive in terminal: (mine was located at /media/745B-FD7D):
cd /media/{your dir}

backup old bios
sudo flashrom -r bios.bak (will store in curent directory)

now sudo flashrom -f -w BIOS.ROM (or whatever you named it)

run command again if it doesn't take the first time. Then you are done

Thanks,
TheWiz,Kev711

RE: HP MCP61PM-HM (Nettle3) 5.17 With Unlocked Overclocking Options
Sure, not a problem. First off grab some files that you'll need here:

AWDFLASH: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1525839/awdflash.EXE

HP USB DISK FORMAT KEY: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1525839/Progr...0Drive.exe

Okay. Now that you have that get out a usb stick, and use the HP disk format utility to make it bootable. You will need a msdos startup image or bootdisk, which can be found on bootdisks.com

Then copy the modified bios into and awdflash.exe bios onto the root of the usb. Then reboot, hold esc for boot menu, and boot the usb. Then simply type awdflash.exe say yes to flash and let her rip. So far every bios flash on the nettle2 and three has worked. The only thing you must be careful about is the overclocking menu can be a bit weird at times, and some people have reported menus coming and going, BUT IN NO WAY WILL IT RENDER YOUR SYSTEM USELESS. Only a bad flash can do that. Use a software OC to find the right values you want, and then just go to the bios and set them. The more you try to change unchange, the more times youll have to reboot into the oc menu to get the options. This problem is trying to be resolved, I did make an attempted *version 2* of this bios for the nettle 2, and i will get working on the nettle 3 when I have the time for it. the point is is that there hasn't been any flash failures, and despite a wierd menu, people who have used it were able to do everything they wanted

Good luck,

TheWiz

This is a zip version for it. Just extract the zip and direct the hp disk format tool to the extracted directory

you type the name of the modded bios file that you downloaded, which by default i believe is NETTLE3MOD.bin, but check the name on your usb stick to be certain.

Try this:

Rename the file on the usb to bios.bin.

Then when you get to cmd type in this:

awdflash bios.bin /py /sn /f /cc /r

Good Luck!
