HP DV6 F.1B BIOS MOD THAT DOESN'T CMOS RESET
#1
Hi, I made a bios unlock request here a while ago. It seems I never got any replies about my bios or whether or not it could be unlocked or not. I did my own research, and in the forums was an older version of my bios with no whitelist and unlocked menus. The problem with this bios is that it causes CMOS resets 99/100 times you attempt to change settings within the bios. So, I looked elsewhere for help on this. Unexpectedly, a member of the insanelymac forums known as Donovan6000 created a bios mod for my laptop of the F.1B bios revision. It allows for all the things I could possibly ask for.

-Disabling and re-enabling the 6770m in my computer

-Disabling and re-enabling Hyperthreading

-Changing other bios settings that are compatible with the laptop

-Allowing the bios (When hackintoshed) to not cause a kernel panic on appleintelcpupowermanagement.kext

-No wifi whitelist

-And NO MORE CMOS RESETS. EVER.

If you have this bios, you should test it. HP's name for this package is sp55068.exe when left vanilla. Just run the Insydeflash utility after extracting all the files from it into a directory. Make sure you know how to unbrick your laptop in case of a brick and enjoy.

Please please please donate to him and check out his other projects. He made this bios mod without even being asked. If it helps you, the least you can do is contribute to this intelligent individual so he continues the amazing work.

Nope. The way we make these options avaliable is by removing the code that makes them invisible. So since there's no overclocking settings in the bios to start with, we can't make them visible. Out of the dozens of bios I've worked with, I've seen 1 that still contained overcloking features. So it's extreamly rare for those options to exists in anyones bios Tongue
