BIOS mod gone wrong
#1
Hello! I'm very new to BIOS modding, and I'm really stupid for not doing enough research...I initially wanted to update my old laptop and give it to my parents for Christmas, but I found out that the wireless card was not functioning properly, so I said "what the [censored]" and bought a new one (Intel 3160). I installed it and was then greeted with the wonderful "Wireless module not supported (704)" error. So I went to searching on how to get around the whitelist, I came across a few posts here and saw that many people have been helped by you guys, so I browse around and find the repository (https://www.bios-mods.com/BIOS/index.php?dir=Insyde%2F) and compare the files listed with known BIOS installation files on HP's website, I found a match (sp55375), downloaded and installed it on my laptop.

Now it won't boot and the CAPS lock light turns on for a second, off for a second, on for a second, off for two seconds. From this support forum (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01732674) that tells me that there is a BIOS error. That is where I am now.

Attached is a picture of the BIOS before I did any flashing.

The model for my laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Quad Edition. The most recently installed BIOS version that worked was version F.1C found here (http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/self...el/5214358)

I really hope that someone will be able to help me out with this.

I know this is old but i wanted to ask you of you have any Modded bios for this specific laptop. I want to see if i can disable the built in Intel Video card
and just use the AMD card and also enable booting from USB 3.0 Renesas Controller.  Did you ever recovered?
