Dell N7110 A13 bios unlock request
#1
http://bayfiles.net/file/1jUPr/MQV2Wy/N7110A13.exe (click on the "Premium Download" link. The "Download" link leads to spam)

Thank you in advance to any and all who help.

I have a Dell Inspiron N7110 with the A13 version bios (link above and attached below).

I just bought an SSD and would like to enable secure boot. The options for UEFI or GPT partitioning are not available in my current bios config, but from what I understand my computer is perfectly capable of these functions - it's just that Dell has chosen to lock these features for some reason.

I searched the forums and found the same request from like three years ago, but at that point no one had been able to unlock it. I'm hoping that has changed.

I've spent the last week trying to teach myself how to do it using things like Phoenixtool, but I've been totally unsuccessful. The bright side is, I never bricked my MB, so that's a good thing.

Maybe this the request has already been filled, and I'll keep searching to that end, but if not I really hope someone can help me out by unlocking this bios so that I can access the UEFI/GPT partitioning functions, or at least point me in a direction that might allow me to do it for myself.

Once again, thank you everyone in advance for your help.

Hello alexkharden,

This is a Phoenix UEFI BIOS. I am not currently capable of modding UEFI. Sorry.

Thank you for replying, Sml6397. If I could ask, is there anyone who can mod UEFI? Or is doing this a lot bigger of a deal that I realize? Thanks again!

Hello alexkharden,

BDMaster is an expert in Insyde EFI/UEFI modding, but I do not think that he can mod Phoenix UEFI.

Due to the increasingly large number of Phoenix UEFI requests that bios-mods has been getting lately, I am going to try to learn Phoenix UEFI sometime in the future.

Well, that's depressing. Thank you for replying so quickly. Just to let you know, when you start experimenting with it, I'd be willing to be a tester for you. I'm very upset that Dell decided to lock these functions. It would be different if the functions weren't even available on that BIOS, but that they're locked is very frustrating.

I wonder, is it possible to replace the actual BIOS chip itself with one that is more user friendly?

That would be a solid no.

Thank you for the offer to be a tester! I would need to know if your computer supports CRISIS BIOS recovery first. It may also be some time before I start releasing mods. I will look into UEFI though since you are interested.

Just wanted to let you know that I received your reply. I downloaded and installed your mod and it works brilliantly, exactly what I was wanting!

Thank you! Smile
