Please check BIOS main page and see if you can see ME FW version, if not download HWINFO64 and run it, on the large window, on the left side expand motherboard section, then go to ME area and find ME Firmware version. Once you know that, just the first number, go to this thread and in section "C" download the matching version ME System Tools package
https://www.win-raid.com/t596f39-Intel-M...Tools.html

Inside you will find Flash Programming Tool folder, inside that a windows or win/win32 folder, select that win folder and hold shift then press right click, choose open command window here (Not power shell). At the command prompt type the following command and then zip and upload the created file for me to check >> FPTw.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin

Thanks, that's correct. Before you can flash in mod BIOS, unless you have USB Flashback on this model, you'll have to unlock BIOS Lock setting.
I made a guide just for this, you can start at step #6, because I will give you info to use from 1-5 below
https://www.win-raid.com/t3908f16-GUIDE-...-BIOS.html

BIOS Lock variable >> 0xA11
Your .efi file needs to be named >> Shell.efi

At grub prompt you'll type the following >> setup_var 0xA11 0x0

Then you can flash mod BIOS. I'm working on BIOS now, will post soon. You can go ahead with this for now, it will remain until you ever again flash stock BIOS or some other mod BIOS that does not have this lock disabled in it (I will disable in mod BIOS too)

For the mod BIOS, I'll be making the following changes -
Switch Boot menu, enable second advanced menu, enable chipset menu and enable OC performance menu

Once done, and you flash, please compare all settings inside new advanced and chipset vs what you can see in AMIBCP, and let me know if there's anything missing that you need and I can further enable (Or you can at that point to if you wanted Big Grin)

Hi, i tried to flash a modified bios by myself whit 3 methods and every time whitout success. First i've followed your guide and disabled bios lock, next i made a modded bios whit amibcp. I prompt the command to flash into your guide on cmd but nothing happened. Second try, i've downloaded afuwin but he noticed me "Error 18" when i clicked on flash. Final try i went into the bios setting and selected ez flash but it  didn't flash because "the file selected isn't a proper bios". Huh
I hope your modded bios will be utilizable or maybe i failed whit the lock disable Confused

Show me grub screen after you do the unlock, you can do it again or simply type this and show me the output >> setup_var 0xA11
If it shows 0x0 then it's unlocked.

As for rest of what you mentioned, EZ Flash will not work with mod BIOS, and AFU may work but you have to try all 100 versions and method before finding correct one, that is why I prefer doing FPT method.

You said >> " I prompt the command to flash into your guide on cmd but nothing happened"
This does not make sense to me, unsure what you mean or what you did etc. But it doesn't sound correct.
Few things first here, before flashing BIOS with FPT, you need to dump BIOS region via FPT >> FPTw.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin
Then you modify that file. That is the ONLY file you flash back with FPT, do not modify stock BIOS and flash via FPT, you will loose your serial, UUID, NVRAM etc.

To flash bios region back after you modify it, you need to open admin command prompt at the folder location that contains FTP and your modified BIOS region file. To do this, select that folder that directly contains these files, hold shift and press right click, choose open command window here (Not power shell). Then at the command prompt you type following >> FPTw.exe -bios -f modbiosreg.bin

If you see any errors STOP and show image, do not attempt to keep flashing, you can brick your board in a single click if you are using wrong command or wrong file etc.

And sorry about this, it appears I was going to mod BIOS for you above in post #4, but never posted the modified BIOS? Did we talk in PM or something, maybe that's why I didn't post? Or, maybe I accidentally closed tab earlier and thought I already posted mod BIOS for you? if so, sorry about that, I'll unlock it now!

AMIBCP can only unlock things in currently visible sections for you, everything else is much more involved editing.

Here is mod BIOS, flash M1 first, then if no second advanced, chipset and OC performance menu, then flash M2 instead (Unsure if AMIBCP edit was needed or not, only M2 has this, may not be necessary so M1 first)
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...3886160827

So >> FPTw.exe -bios -f biosregM1.bin
Or >> FPTw.exe -bios -f biosregM2.bin

*** These BIOS are only for Gianlu11, anyone else DO NOT FLASH or you will loose your serial, UUID, NVRAM etc.
If anyone else needs unlocked BIOS upload your FPT dumped BIOS region, and unlock your BIOS lock setting while you wait, all per above instructions

I meaned that i followed the prompt command at point 20 of your guide for flash.
I think Bios is still locked and i did a photo of grub command.
I trided whit biosregm1 and m2 but it shows "error 167" i did a photo also of this

My guide does not go to #20, what guide are you referring to? I need to see entire screen and command entered at grub
But it looks like you may need to use modified grub instead, here use this .efi file (rename same as before) instead and setup_var2 0xA11 0x0
http://brains.by/posts/bootx64.7z

If that one fails too, then use the one from the "releases" tab on this page and use setup_var3 command
https://github.com/datasone/grub-mod-setup_var

Once you get BIOS Lock set to 0x0 then try again, the error you posted may still happen (error 167), if this does then you need flash programmer and SOIC8 test clip cable, or we'll have to try a bunch of AFU versions until we find one that works for your BIOS with mod BIOS. I will send you a bunch of AFU for testing, you can try GUI versions, and cmd line versions in windows, once you find one that works to create a backup BIOS then this method will be how to flash (Flash stock, then without reboot flash mod) See this guide, last spoiler is what you need to look at, how to flash mod BIOS method. You can also try the attached files in that guide, for it's specific AFU version.

PM Coming for the rest of AFU

Did you try the above 2x different Shell.efi files? Try both separately, one use setup_var2 and other use setup_var3 commands, show me image output in full from each one.

setup_var2 0xA11 0x0 << Do this with file from first link in post #8
setup_var3 0xA11 0x0 << Do this with file from second link in post #8

Once you have setup_var 0xA11 = 0x0 then it's unlocked and you can flash from FPT as first suggested in post #6
