I am also after a hacked BIOS for this laptop so I can enable AMD-V

I tried Fn + Tab trick to make advanced BIOS menu appear after reboot. Didn't do anything.

So I figured I need a hacked BIOS. Tried to do one myself by:

Changing platform.ini:

[Bios_Version_Check]
Flag=2 

to 

Flag=0

so I can downgrade to 1.09 (was on 1.13)

And then running: 

C:\Users\ben\Desktop\ZABA_109\bios_extract>main.py ZABA.fd
Opened BIOS 'ZABA.fd' with md5:2d16ffa9d1d316e8cf5e88a84f63f5e5
Operating on BIOS data/original_bios_backup1.fd size = 0x8b29d0
Loading compressed sections
 .. found 22 compressed sections
Locating Firmware Volumes
  .. found 6 FirmwareVolumes (1 compressed)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\ben\Desktop\ZABA_109\bios_extract\main.py", line 473, in <module>
    main()
  File "C:\Users\ben\Desktop\ZABA_109\bios_extract\main.py", line 468, in main
    bios = BIOS(sys.argv[1])
  File "C:\Users\ben\Desktop\ZABA_109\bios_extract\main.py", line 259, in __init__
    setup_utility = self.locate_setup_utility(vol_compr)
  File "C:\Users\ben\Desktop\ZABA_109\bios_extract\main.py", line 408, in locate_setup_utility
    raise RuntimeError("Shouldn't get here, seems we couldn't "
RuntimeError: Shouldn't get here, seems we couldn't find the SetupUtility :/

As you can see, couldnt extract the setup utility out to hack it (was going to do something like described at https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-U...725?page=2)

I've attached all files used to this post (bios, flasher, python scripts)

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers
Ben

Sorry I realized I forgot the rom I had in the zip file I attached.

Here is the official 1.13 I downloaded from Acer (The process to get this file involves running their exe and quickly copying the ZABA.fd file that appears for a short while.
